Both Iran and the United States have expressed interest in returning to their commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which the previous US administration exited. However neither side seems to agree on exactly how to do it, with both Washington and Tehran exchanging views through the media.
Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who makes all final decisions of the state, spoke about the JCPOA during a speech to air force commanders Feb. 7. “The Americans and Europeans do not have a right to set conditions because they are the ones who violated their JCPOA commitments,” Khamenei said. “The side which must set conditions is the Islamic Republic, which adhered to its commitments.”
