Abolfazl Amoui, spokesperson of the Iranian Parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Committee told Mehr News Agency the Western countries may have hoped that the recent unrest and riots in the country would serve their political interests in the course of the talks on getting the Iran deal, officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, back on track.
Now that the security situation in the country has improved, the Westerners could come to the conclusion that Iran will not retreat from its interests in the negotiations on the nuclear agreement, which the US abandoned in 2018, he said.
If the Americans develop the approach that Iran will stand by its interests, a final agreement may not be far from reach, the lawmaker added.
“Our position is fixed. We have announced from the start of the negotiations that if the other side returns to its commitments and remove the sanctions effectively, we are ready to retaliate,” Amou’ei added.
He said, “The negotiations were never interrupted and were followed through mediation and sending messages and unofficial draft texts.”
