Despite US President-elect Joe Biden’s team expressing interest in rejoining the Iran nuclear deal, Iranian officials are not eager to discuss the idea.

During a press conference with Iran’s Oil Minister Bijan Zanganeh, a reporter asked about the likelihood of reentering the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Zanganeh said that he had nothing to say about the topic and would not be commenting on it anytime soon.
