U.S. reveals what they need to lift Iran sanctions
The United States is ready to talk to Iran about a deal that would lift American sanctions, but Tehran would need to curtail its nuclear and missile programs, as well as its support for proxies, U.S. Special Representative on Iran Brian Hook said.
The official said that the U.S. was looking to agree a treaty that would be ratified by the U.S. Congress, saying the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and world powers was flawed because it had no legal basis.
"This is a president who is very willing to sit down with the regime. I think the question people should be asking is ... why Iran continues to reject diplomacy," Reuters cited him as saying.
According to Hook, Iran could come to the negotiating table or watch its economy "continue to crumble."
