Iran’s chief negotiator at talks to revive the nuclear deal has told state media that the US is willing to lift many of its sanctions and come back to the agreement, but Tehran is still pushing to secure “all our demands.”

“The information transferred to us from the US side is that they are also serious on returning to the nuclear deal, and they have so far declared their readiness to lift a great part of their sanctions,” Abbas Araghchi told state-owned Press TV on Friday.

“But this is not adequate from our point of view, and therefore the discussions will continue until we get to all our demands.”

Indirect US-Iranian talks to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal – officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) – have been taking place for several weeks in Vienna.

The negotiations for both nations to return fully to the landmark accord have been mediated by its other signatories: France, Britain, Germany, Russia, and China.
