Speaking to ILNA news agency, he or she added that the Europeans cannot be the initiators and carriers of a message or proposal to other countries without the consent of Iran.

While a familiar source told to ILNA news agency on Thursday morning that Germany and the United Kingdom have made offered to the United States to lift non-targeted sanctions, the official told ILNA that "we have not had any negotiations with the United States or European countries."

A familiar source added that Germany, with the concurrence and support of the United Kingdom, has proposed that the United States, as a first step, temporarily lift non-targeted sanctions, which have the greatest economic impact on the Iranians.

The U.N. Security Council is preparing to vote this week on a U.S. proposal to extend an arms embargo on Iran, a move that some diplomats say is bound to fail and put the fate of a nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers further at risk.

The embargo is due to expire in October under a 2015 deal among Iran, Russia, China, Germany, Britain, France and the United States that prevents Tehran from developing nuclear weapons in return for sanctions relief.
