Blinken Says US Getting 'Closer' To Giving Up On Iran Nuclear Deal

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has warned Iran that Washington is getting 'closer' to giving up on hopes of returning to the restoration of the JCPOA nuclear deal.

This after the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) issued two confidential reports Tuesday which charged Iranian officials with blocking access to sites, all the while allegedly expanding its nuclear activity. The IAEA said its inspection efforts are being "seriously undermined".

The Vienna talks have been on hold since June 20th, after they had been temporarily suspended reportedly by the Iranian side pending the entry into office of the newly elected president, Ebrahim Raisi.

Blinken spoke to reporters while in Germany meeting with his German counterpart Heiko Mass: "I'm not going to put a date on it but we are getting closer to the point at which a strict return to compliance with the JCPOA does not reproduce the benefits that that agreement achieved," after he was specifically asked about stalled negotiations and the point of no return.

Foreign Minister Heiko Maas condemned Iran's delay as "far too long" and said he had urged Iran's foreign ministry to demand that Iran "return more swiftly to the negotiating table," according to AFP.
