In his daily press briefing, Psaki evaluated the latest situation regarding the nuclear deal with Iran.
“What we are open is diplomatic negotiation and our view on this is the White House: diplomacy is the best way to prevent Iran from possessing nuclear weapons,” Psaki said. He stated that they were ready to sit at the table with Tehran for this reason, using his statement.
Reminding Iran’s statement that “if necessary, we can enrich uranium up to 60 percent”, Psaki said:
“Iran is far from meeting the terms of the agreement and this has not changed in recent weeks. Diplomacy is the best way to prevent them from accessing nuclear weapons, but that does not mean that Iran will not meet the terms of the agreement.”
Psaki stated that the framework for possible diplomatic negotiations with Iran is the P5 + 1 structure, in this context, they will respond to the invitation from the European Union (EU), and whether Iran will participate or not is expected.
Speaking about the release of American citizens detained in Iran, Sözcü was content to say that they discussed this issue with Tehran through several direct and indirect channels.
