The President’s
statements came after Iran’s supremo Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s comments on
Sunday asking the United States to lift all sanctions if the country wants
Tehran to reverse its nuclear steps.

in early January announced that it had resumed advanced uranium enrichment,
which is in violation of the terms of the 2015 nuclear deal.

the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the US agreed to lift economic sanctions on Iran if it limits the nuclear programming of the country.

However, former US President Donald Trump in 2018 pulled
the U.S. out of the deal and reimposed those sanctions.

Tehran in return suspended compliance with most key nuclear commitments to the
deal last year.

The Biden administration however expressed willingness to return to the deal, but refused to bear any dominance from the country and demanded that the Islamic republic first resumes nuclear deal compliance.
