Spokesman: Iranian Security Council rejects draft nuclear deal with (previously proven untrustworthy) US regime

Source: Axios

“Iran’s Supreme National Security Council has rejected a draft agreement negotiated indirectly with the U.S. over the past three months in Vienna, a government spokesman said Thursday. However, another spokesman later denied that there was any ‘agreement’ to reject in the first place. Either way, the statements seem to indicate that incoming president Ebrahim Raisi will seek to renegotiate the understandings reached in Vienna to seek a better deal for Iran. They also confirm that no deal on Iran’s nuclear program will be reached before Raisi, a hardliner, takes office next month.” (07/20/21)
