Iran claims it has not received a letter from US President Barack Obama

A representative for the Iranian government downplayed rumors of a letter from the United States on Tuesday. Ebrahim Raisi, the Iranian counterpart to President Joe Biden. “More important than sending letters is taking practical actions to return to their commitments and lift the illegal sanctions against the Iranian nation,” Ali Bahadori Jahromi said, adding that the Iranian administration has been seeking to “neutralize” the sanctions since Raisi took office in August 2021, adding that it has not “overturned the negotiating table” in the Vienna talks on the revival of a 2015 nuclear deal.

He urged international bodies to act independently and according to international regulations, stressing that Iran has the most transparent nuclear activities in the world. On Wednesday, the IAEA’s Board of Governors adopted the resolution proposed by the United States and its allies, accusing Iran of noncooperation. In reaction to the resolution, Iran has taken measures such as shutting off a number of the IAEA’s surveillance cameras at its nuclear sites.

Jahromi emphasized that Iran has rightful demands and expects the other sides to hear them, saying the U.S. “maximum pressure” policy will fail to impact the negotiations. Referring to a recent anti-Iran resolution adopted by the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Agency (IAEA), he said it occurred after an Israel visit by IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi, which proves the agency’s lack of independence and that it has been issued at a third party’s order.
