Global News published this video item, entitled “Iran’s President-elect Raisi says US must return to nuclear deal, but says “no” to meeting Biden” – below is their description.
Iranian President-elect Ebrahim Raisi said on Monday during his first news conference that the United States violated Iran’s nuclear deal, known as JCPOA, and must lift all sanctions. However, he said “no” to meeting U.S. President Joe Biden if current sanctions on the country were lifted.
Raisi also said the European Union had failed to “fulfill its commitments.”
Raisi said Iran’s ballistic missile program was non-negotiable, despite demands by the West and Gulf Arab countries that it be included in the ongoing talks to revive the nuclear agreement.
Raisi, 60, a hardliner and strident critic of the West, will take over from pragmatist Hassan Rouhani in August as Iran seeks to salvage the tattered nuclear deal and be rid of U.S. sanctions that have induced a sharp economic downturn.

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.
