TEHRAN, September 25 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian says that Tehran is constantly receiving positive messages from Washington but it makes judgments based on the Americans' actions.In an interview with the Tehran-based IRNA news agency before leaving New York for Tehran, the top Iranian diplomat cited that he has discussed the issue of JCPOA revival with his Omani counterpart.

Any plan and initiative that secures the interests of the Iranian nation, respects Tehran's red lines, and leads to the removal of sanctions and the return of all parties to their obligations, can be considered by Tehran, he said.

Dubbing the implementation of the recent agreement between Tehran and Washington last week a positive event, the Iranian foreign minister added, "Naturally, the exchange of messages between the two parties is not a new issue, but we have to see what will happen in the coming weeks." "We will continue our efforts to lift the sanctions through diplomacy and negotiation," he continued, adding that Iran will never tolerate the US' hypocritical behavior.

The positive approach and constructive measures of other parties is an important issue in reaching an agreement, he underlined.

He went on to say that the Sultan of Oman's initiative is in the framework of a method to accelerate and help all parties return to their commitments in the JCPOA, and it does not mean that the initiative holds a new design or text.

Multilateral diplomatic efforts to revive the JCPOA have been stalled since August 2022, with Iran blaming the United States for refusing to remove the sanctions that the nuclear deal had lifted and also failing to guarantee that it will not leave the deal again.
