Iran remains open to any offer on stabilizing the situation around the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the Iran nuclear deal, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on Wednesday after the meeting of the Joint Commission of the JCPOA, held in Vienna at the political directors level, APA reports citing Sputnik.

"Iran started reducing its obligations last May, but we are still open to any initiative that can ensure for Iran benefits from the JCPOA," Araghchi told reporters.

He added that the nuclear deal was "still alive" despite pressure from the United States, which withdrew from the agreement in 2018.

The Iranian economy is functioning normally despite the decrease in oil export due to Washington's sanctions, Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi said on Wednesday.

"Everything is normal. Our economy is feeling good. For the first time in our modern history, it continues development without using oil. And this is thanks to the US sanctions," Araghchi told reporters.
