China calls on US to make amends for mistakes on Iran
As the initiator of the Iranian nuclear crisis, Washington should correct its mistakes and address Tehran’s concerns, Al Jazeera quoted China’s Foreign Ministry as saying.
Beijing has repeatedly blamed the United States for the current situation regarding Iran’s nuclear program and called on Washington to take the necessary political decisions as soon as possible.
The talks on lifting the sanctions ended on Wednesday evening in Doha, the capital of Qatar.
Meanwhile, a spokesperson for the US State Department claimed later on Wednesday that the talks were over, saying: “While we are very grateful to the EU for their efforts, we are disappointed that Iran has not has, once again, not responded positively to the EU initiative and therefore no progress has been made,” CNN reported.
Rejecting the US allegations, Mohammad Marandi, adviser to Iran’s negotiating team in Vienna, said the Doha talks on discussing the remaining JCPOA disputes had not failed and negotiations would continue.
The US government has repeatedly tried to accuse other parties of slowing down and obstructing the talks, instead of offering practical initiatives to move the talks forward.
