The United States will offer Iran a new nuclear deal and the lifting of sanctions this week.
Washington is trying to break the nuclear stalemate.
The Americans will require Tehran to stop some of its nuclear work, such as improving centrifuges and enriching uranium to 20 percent purity, in exchange for relief from economic sanctions.
The details of the potential deal are still being worked out. There is no certainty that the Islamic Republic will accept the terms.
Moreover, Tehran rejected the U.S. offer earlier this year, saying it was “unacceptable.”
It is worth noting that Joe Biden, while still a presidential candidate, promised to bring the U.S. back into the nuclear deal. After the election, Washington offered Tehran to negotiate through the European Union.
The Islamic Republic responded by demanding that sanctions be lifted. Tehran said that otherwise it was not going to fulfill its obligations under the deal and negotiate.
