Iran says it’s decision time for US in nuclear talks

Iran says it is time for the United States to make political decisions to resolve key remaining issues, including on lifting sanctions, at talks aimed at reviving Tehran’s nuclear deal.

“What remains are important and key issues that require specific political decisions,” foreign ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh says at his weekly news conference.

“Washington, in particular, must announce its decisions on removing sanctions and the remaining issues,” he says. “If this happens… we will reach a lasting, reliable agreement at a good pace.”

His remarks come on the day chief negotiators are due to return to Vienna for the talks after having traveled home on Saturday for consultations.
