Iran to return to nuclear deal only under oil credit line - media
Tehran would return to its nuclear deal commitment only if it got $15 billion for oil sales over four months, Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqhchi said.
"Our return to the full implementation of the nuclear accord is subject to the receipt of $15 billion over a four-month period, otherwise the process of reducing Iran’s commitments will continue," the Fars news agency cited him as saying.
"Either Europe has to buy oil from Iran or provide Iran with the equivalent of selling oil as a credit line guaranteed by Iran’s oil revenues, which in some sense means a pre-sale of oil," Araqchi added.
Earlier, France has proposed offering Iran about $15 billion in credit lines until year-end if Tehran comes fully back into compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal, a move that hinges on Washington not blocking it.
