Iranian Delegation Due in Paris to Discuss Macron’s Offer
A senior political-economic delegation will travel to Paris on Monday to discuss the French president’s new offer to save the Iran nuclear deal, said the Iranian president’s chief of staff.
According to Mahmoud Vaezi, the Iranian delegation will be headed by Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Seyyed Abbas Araqchi.
“An offer was exchanged between Iran and France two weeks ago. We have changed considerable parts of the offer shared with us,” Vaezi said Saturday night.
The Iranian President once again reiterated that any further talks depend on the complete removal of anti-Iran sanctions.
The 2015 deal between Iran and six world powers, reached when Trump’s predecessor Barack Obama was in office, was aimed to curb Iran’s disputed uranium enrichment programme in exchange for the lifting of many international sanctions on Tehran.
