Washington DC, July 19: Iran has on Thursday signaled its willingness to engage in diplomacy with the United States to deescalate tensions with an offer on its landmark 2015 international nuclear treaty with the world powers that met skepticism in Washington DC.

According to Reuters news reports, the Iranian foreign minister told reporters Tehran could immediately approve a document advising more intrusive examination of its nuclear and missile programme if the US abandoned its economic sanctions.

The document, named as the Additional Protocol, provides United Nations (UN) investigators from the IAEA (International Atomic Energy Agency) additional tools to examine that Iranian nuclear programme is peaceful.

While the US officials suggested they viewed Iran’s idea as a non-starter plan, analysts stated it could offer an opening for the US President Donald Trump administration to pursue Tehran-Washington diplomacy.

Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif was quoted by the Guardian newspaper as telling reporters: “If Trump wants more for more, we can ratify the Additional Protocol and he can lift the sanctions he set.”

However, since Tehran is as of now executing the protocol and has also often offered in the past to approve it, it was uncertain Zarif’s proposal established quite a bit of a concession.

Under the 2015 nuclear arrangement consented by Tehran, Iran must look for ratification of the protocol eight years after the pact was adopted.

U.S. authorities reacted warily, recommending it was a pretentious exertion to get sanctions alleviation.

“Their whole game is to try to get any sanctions relief they can while maintaining the ability to get a nuclear weapon in the future,” stated an official speaking on a condition of anonymity, adding Tehran was “trying to spin a small action into” something much bigger.

The authority noticed under the offer, Iran would continue enriching uranium, a procedure that can deliver fissile material for atomic weapons, and would do nothing to get control over its help for local intermediaries in Yemen, Iraq, Syria, and Lebanon.

“If Iran wants to make a serious gesture, it should start by ending uranium enrichment immediately and having an actual decision-maker attempt to negotiate a deal that includes a permanent end to Iran’s malign nuclear ambitions, including its development of nuclear-capable missiles,” said the official.
