(Worthy News) - Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov and chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi discussed the 2015 Nuclear Accord in Tehran on May 29, calling for a meeting of the six countries party to the agreement that would hear Iranian complaints.

Each "shared the hope that the situation will stabilize soon,” with Araqchi promising nevertheless that Iran was “ready for war” with the US if need be.

In early May Iranian leaders gave the remaining European signatories to the deal 60 days to find a workaround to Trump’s economic stranglehold on pain of Iran beginning its nuclear-capable enrichment of uranium again, which the 2015 accord stipulates against.

The US withdrew from the deal, which Trump has called “fatally flawed,” last year, instead opting to foist sanctions on the Islamic Republic designed to bring its oil exports to zero and bring it to the nuclear negotiating table on its knees.

Other detractors of the deal, like Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, have criticized it for failing to address Iran’s extensive nuclear infrastructure, instead relying on guarantees from the Iranians not to enrich uranium beyond 3.76% verified only by the cursory inspections of UN officials.
