(PatriotWise.com)- The window of opportunity for Iran to accept the terms of the Obama-era administration’s Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, often known as the Iran Nuclear Deal or JCPOA, is closing, according to French Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna on Tuesday.
Speaking to French lawmakers, Colonna stated that the window will “shut in a few weeks,” potentially ending the 2015 agreement, which is still in effect in many European nations.
In 2018, the contract was infamously canceled by American President Donald Trump.
The French minister stated that there is still a window of opportunity for Iran to decide to embrace a deal it helped to construct ultimately, but time is going. “Time is moving on. Tehran must understand this.”
Colonna also cautioned that the midterm elections in November, in which Democrats appear to be losing control of at least one chamber of Congress, might make reaching an agreement with Iran much more difficult.
Colonna emphasized that only a few weeks remain until the agreement may be reached and said that there would “not be a better accord than the one which is on the table.”
This week, Tehran wants to reach a solid and long-lasting nuclear agreement with the major international countries. Following a meeting with U.S. partner Qatar, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian made some remarks.
In a joint news conference with Sheikh Mohammed of Qatar, the Iranian foreign minister said that he is determined to achieve a good, robust, and durable accord, and contrary to American assertions, they have not proposed any demands outside of the nuclear deal.
The subject had recently been discussed with Iranian officials by the Qatari foreign minister. In addition, the meeting was held one week after Tehran held indirect negotiations on the nuclear accord with representatives of the European Union.
Under anonymity, a senior U.S. official spoke with Reuters about the recent meetings and said that the discussions decreased the likelihood of reaching an agreement.
The official stated that the chances of a settlement after Doha are worse than before Doha, and they will become worse by the day.
At best, Doha is treading water; at worst, it’s going backward.
Tehran has repeatedly stressed that a deal with the United States would necessitate lifting sanctions imposed on it by the Trump administration. President Joe Biden and the White House would significantly back down due to the action, and Iran’s economy would benefit substantially.
