FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Iran nuclear talks: to revive deal ‘the only solution is to lift all sanctions’ • FRANCE 24” – below is their description.

EU, #Iranian and #Russian diplomats sounded upbeat as #Iran and world powers held their first talks in five months to try to save their 2015 nuclear deal, despite Tehran taking a tough stance in public that Western powers said would not work. Iran is determined to get all sanctions dropped from the US and EU, in force since 2018, as a condition of returning to the 2015 JCPOA agreement. Even with all of the immense challenges that lie ahead, the dropping of all sanctions is actually one point of contention that could very well be resolved, says Marc Finaud, Head of Arms Proliferation at the Geneva Center for Security Policy. “The agreement was based initially on this reciprocity, the lifting of all sanctions in return for restrictions and concessions by Iran on its nuclear programme.” But then, in May 2018, the US “pulled out (of the agreement) and reinstated sanctions,” explains Mr. Finaud. From there, “Iran felt, on the basis of that reciprocity, entitled to suspend some of its commitments. And so now the only solution is to lift all sanctions to allow Iran to revert, to come back, to full compliance with the agreement.”

    Iran, also called Persia, officially the Islamic Republic of Iran, is a country in Western Asia. Its central location in Eurasia and proximity to the Strait of Hormuz give it significant geostrategic importance. Tehran is the capital and largest city.

    Iran is home to one of the world’s oldest civilizations, beginning with the formation of the Elamite kingdoms in the fourth millennium BC. The Iranian Revolution established the current Islamic Republic in 1979.

    Iran’s political system combines elements of a presidential democracy and an Islamic theocracy. Iran is a founding member of the UN, ECO, OIC, and OPEC. It is a major regional and middle power and has large reserves of fossil fuels — including the world’s largest natural gas supply and the third largest proven oil reserves.

    The country’s rich cultural legacy is reflected in part by its 22 UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Historically a multi-ethnic country, Iran remains a pluralistic society comprising numerous ethnic, linguistic, and religious groups, the largest being Persians, Azeris, Kurds, Mazandaranis and Lurs.
