Iran said Tuesday’s talks to salvage its nuclear deal with world powers won’t succeed unless they lead to the full and guaranteed removal of U.S. sanctions, APA reports citing Bloomberg.

Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh, said it was up to the European Union, China and Russia to ensure that Washington “corrects” its path and provides the guaranteed and verifiable removal of bruising penalties on Iran’s economy imposed by former President Donald Trump.

“If we can reach an agreement on the comprehensive lifting of sanctions with the P4+1 and they can guarantee U.S. commitments, the path will be opened,” Khatibzadeh said. He was referring to the four permanent members of the United Nations Security Council plus Germany that remain party to the accord.
