In Iran, the West's approach to the talks has been called “inadequate,” according to local news agency IRNA. According to President Ibrahim Raisi, untrue accusations have been brought against Tehran, since the IAEA confirms the transparency of the country's nuclear program and its peaceful orientation. According to the head of state, Iran demands not only the lifting of sanctions, but also the removal of charges from the country on the nuclear program.

In April, Iran's demands on the nuclear deal were put forward by the country's parliament: the US refusal to impose new sanctions against Iran; legal guarantees that Washington will not withdraw from the agreements; removal of restrictions on the export of Iranian oil.

The United States and Iran are negotiating a return to the agreement on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which was signed in 2015 by seven countries— in addition to the above, among them were France, Great Britain, Germany, China and Russia. The parties agreed that in exchange for the lifting of economic sanctions, Iran would limit its nuclear program.

Former US President Donald Trump refused to implement the agreement in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran, which returned to the implementation of the nuclear program : began to exceed the permissible level of uranium enrichment, and also limited cooperation with the IAEA. Joe Biden, who replaced Trump, said that the United States was ready to return to negotiations on a nuclear deal.

In March of this year, the US State Department indicated that negotiations on a deal were at the finish line, but then they were suspended. In June, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell, after a visit to Iran, announced that Washington and Tehran would resume negotiations.

In late June, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, during a visit to Iran, said that Russia was for the speedy restoration of the JCPOA on the nuclear program in its original configuration, TASS reported.
