Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Iran’s Khamenei reiterates nuclear deal stance in new year speech” – below is their description.
Iran’s Supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei says the United States must lift all sanctions before Iran complies with the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) which former President Donald Trump had torn up in 2015.
Khamenei said he said the “maximum pressure” of Trump had failed and that he was in no hurry to have sanctions reversed, in a speech to address the nation on the Persian New Year.
The administration of President Joe Biden wants to return to the nuclear deal but says Iran must be in full compliance with the accord before sanctions can be lifted.

In This Story: Iran
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.
