Iran, US relations depends on lifting sanctions

Attending his weekly press conference, Saeed Khatibzadeh responded to the Iran Press' question, saying that the Irish Foreign Minister Simon Coveney's meeting with President Hassan Rouhani regarding Iran-US relations was positive.

He added "The issue between Iran and the United States is not about sending a signal, but the effective implementation of Resolution 2231 and the lifting of sanctions. These do not require signals and they are completely clear."

Khatibzadeh responded to another question of Iran Press correspondent regarding the Supreme National Security Council meeting before the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency’s meeting, noting that National Security Council meetings were held regularly and had definite agenda.

As the name represents, the meeting is private and its details will not be released through media except some parts, Foreign Ministry Spokesman concluded.

He added "The Foreign Ministers of France and Iran discussed bilateral issues and JCPOA on the telephone. UN Secretary-General and Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also had a telephone conversation, which I announced important points before. FM Zarif also had a telephone conversation with his Armenian counterpart."

A new round of political consultations between Iran and Greece took place last week, according to Khatibzadeh.

He noted that yesterday, the Irish Foreign Minister traveled to Iran to discuss bilateral issues and Ireland's role in UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

The two sides discussed ways to expand bilateral relations and reopening the Irish Embassy in Tehran, added Khatibzadeh.
