Iran said it will automatically return to its nuclear commitments if the United States US President Joe Biden lift sanctions.

According to the details, the Foreign Minister of Iran Javad Zarif in a recent interview to the local media said that Tehran would return to full compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal if U.S. President-elect Joe Biden lifts crippling sanctions against the country.

Zarif said that Tehran remains committed to the nuclear accord, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and that Biden could make the changes quickly through “three executive orders.”

It is pertinent to mention here that Iran in recent months, has gradually reduced its commitments under the deal in response to U.S. sanctions reimposed after U.S. President Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the accord in 2018.

Iran has complained that it is not benefiting economically from the nuclear deal under which the country significantly limited its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
