US State Department Spokesperson Ned Price has confirmed that the United States has received, and is studying, the Iranian comments on the EU proposal to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action accords.
- A positive outcome to talks appears closer than at any point since talks restarted last year with the US now seen as the most likely obstacle to a restoration of a deal.
- The US State Department has repeatedly stated that Iranian demands to provide legal assurances in the event the US unilaterally withdraws from the accords, seen as likely if Donald Trump retakes the White House in 2024, is considered by the US a demand that falls outside the parameters of the original 2015 deal.
- Price is expected to provide an update on the US position when he briefs the press at 14:00 ET 19:00 BST:https://www.state.gov/todays-briefing-schedule/
