US and UK want to return to negotiations on nuclear deals with Iran


The UK Foreign Office said Tuesday the UK and the United States agreed that Iran must return to negotiations in Vienna on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
British Foreign Secretary Liz Truss met US Secretary of State Antony Blinken during the UN General Assembly in New York and held talks on Iran, Afghanistan and the trilateral security partnership between the US, Australia and the UK.
EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell told reporters that ministers from Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia will not meet with Iran at the United Nations this week to discuss a return to talks on a nuclear deal .

In six indirect rounds of talks between the US and Iran, the world powers tried in Vienna how both can return to compliance with the nuclear pact abandoned by former US President Donald Trump in 2018.

Trump again imposed harsh sanctions on Iran, which then began to break the restrictions on its nuclear program. Tehran has stated that its nuclear program is only for peaceful energy purposes.

Last week Defense Secretary Benny Gantz said Israel could accept a return to a US-brokered nuclear deal with Iran, but urged Washington to hold a show of force in case the negotiations turn sour.

“I would accept the current US approach of putting the Iranian nuclear program back in a box,” said Gantz, referring to the efforts of US President Joe Biden, but added that he has a Plan B with economic sanctions for that USA would like to have. and referred to Israel’s Plan C, which includes a military response.
