Washington: We will not agree to the nuclear deal with Iran if it does not prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons

Washington: We will not agree to the nuclear deal with Iran if it does not prevent it from acquiring nuclear weapons  US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan confirmed that the United States will not agree to return to the nuclear agreement with Iran, if the deal does not guarantee that Tehran will not acquire nuclear weapons.  Sullivan said during a press conference, on Tuesday, "We consider that if there is a nuclear deal with Iran consistent with the criteria set by President (Joe Biden), which is to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons in a verifiable way, and cram its nuclear program in the can after it President Trump took it out of it, when he pulled out of the deal in 2018, we would agree to such a deal, because we believe it is in the national security interests.”  He continued, "But we will not agree to the deal if it does not match those tasks."  Sullivan admitted that Russia played a central role in reaching the nuclear agreement with Iran in 2015, as Russia received enriched uranium from Iran so that Iran's stocks do not exceed 300 kg.  He explained that "the stockpiles were so small that they did not allow Iran to start work quickly to obtain a nuclear shipment. This was the main part in terms of ensuring that the Iranian nuclear program was kept in the box."  This matter was of practical, but not political, importance, he added.  Source: "TASS"
