Britain, Germany and France doubt the seriousness of Tehran’s intentions to revive the nuclear agreement

European powers on Saturday expressed “serious doubts” about Iran’s sincerity in seeking a deal on its nuclear program, warning that Tehran’s stance undermines prospects for a renewal of the 2015 deal.

France, Germany and the UK said in a joint statement that the Islamic Republic’s recent demands in negotiations to reach an agreement “raise serious doubts about Iran’s intentions and commitment to achieve a successful outcome with respect to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.”

And US National Security Council strategic communications coordinator John Kirby said last Thursday that Washington is currently not close to resuscitating the nuclear deal with Iran.

On August 4, negotiations resumed in Vienna on the resuscitation of an agreement on Iran’s nuclear program with the indirect participation of the United States.

The draft deal is about easing sanctions on Iran in exchange for the nuclear steps needed to put the Iranian nuclear deal, signed in 2015, back on track.
