Q : All attention is naturally focused on the Ukraine/Russia situation right now, however, negotiations with the Islamic Republic of Iran are ongoing. Is there an opening in sight?
R : Per the schedule, we are entering into the final phase of negotiations. Political decisions are needed. That is why the negotiators have returned to their respective capitals for brief consultations.
We are determined to sign an agreement while there is still time in order to allow the United States to quickly rejoin the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and Iran to fully and completely implement its nuclear-related commitments, per this agreement.
