US warns Iran Nuclear Deal talks are in 'critical phase' but claims window for diplomacy 'is never going to be closed'
The US Special Representative for Iran, Robert Malley, has shared America's "growing concern" about Iran's alleged nuclear advancement, as he declared that talks over reviving the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal are in a critical phase.
Speaking on a call with reporters on Monday, Malley laid out Washington's approach to nuclear discussions with Iran, as Western nations seek to revive the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) after then-President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in 2018.
Malley visited the Middle East last week to engage in talks on the matter in Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Qatar before visiting Europe to meet with senior diplomats from most of the signatories of the original accord, France, Germany and the UK.
Following his meetings, the US envoy claimed that nuclear talks are "at a critical phase," where Iran, according to Malley, has to choose between continuing to delay talks, coming back to the table with unrealistic demands, or working with signatories to revive the agreement.
While saying that is a "growing concern over the pace and direction of Iran’s nuclear progress,” the diplomat reiterated:"the window for diplomacy is never going to be closed."
