Shamkhani sheds light on Iran’s options in interactions with the world – Politics News

“Options that are never taken off the table,” Shamkhani wrote in a Twitter post that has been translated into multiple languages.

“The glorious presence of Iranians in ceremonies in support of the Islamic establishment,” he added, referring to the huge display of Iranian support for the Islamic revolution at Friday’s rallies marking the anniversary of the victory of the revolution.

“Maintain and enhance #Iran’s peaceful nuclear capabilities and defense capabilities. Regional Security Policies of the Islamic Republic,” Shamkhani added.

His comment comes as the eighth round of the Vienna talks which began on December 27 is underway and focuses on removing all sanctions the United States imposed on Iran following its unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA.

The United States is not allowed to directly attend the talks due to its 2018 withdrawal from the Iran deal.

The United States left the JCPOA in May 2018 under former President Donald Trump. The Vienna talks began on Trump’s successor Joe Biden’s promise to join the deal and repeal the so-called maximum pressure campaign against Iran. Biden, however, has so far failed to undo Trump’s own loss of Barack Obama’s Iran policy, which led to the JCPOA in June 2015.
