Rouhani: Iran Will Return to Nuclear Deal Within an Hour of US Doing So

• by Dave DeCamp

Reiterating his desire to return to the 2015 nuclear deal, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Monday that Tehran could come into compliance with the agreement within an hour of the US doing so.

Rouhani also said that Iran would not accept any preconditions for returning to the deal, known as the JCPOA, including limitations on Iran's ballistic missile program.

A stricter deal that includes Tehran's missiles is a demand of Iran hawks in the Trump administration. Rouhani addressed this demand and his hopes for the incoming administration.

"The Americans were trying for months to add the missile issue and this was rejected," Rouhani said of the 2015 JCPOA negotiations. "Trump was uninformed and did not know about the matter, but Mr. Biden is well aware of the details of the deal."
