Iran says there has been progress made in the nuclear talks with world powers on containing Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for US sanctions relief, effectively reimplementing the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which the United States exited in 2018 under the previous administration. 

Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesperson for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, told reporters today, “Progress in the talks is headed in the right direction. In all four areas we have had good progress.” He continued, “Many of Iran’s ideas have turned into words, such as in the area of guarantees. What’s important is that all of the sides in the negotiations have accepted that what happened in previous years with the US exit from the JCPOA should not be repeated.”
