Lifting of sanctions, necessity for US return to JCPOA: French researcher

Tehran, Jan 31, IRNA – Lifting sanctions on Iran enshrined by the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, is a necessity for the US to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – JCPOA, a French researcher said on Sunday.

Romuald Sciora, a research associate at the French Institute for International and Strategic Affairs (IRIS), told IRNA that it would not be simple for the new US administration to return to JCPOA.

He said that it would not also be simple, from a legal viewpoint, for the Biden administration to return to JCPOA as Tehran deems the lifting of sanctions as a necessary step for the US return to the accord.

It is also likely that the Iranians will seek compensation for the damages inflicted on the country due to the imposition of the US sanctions.

He, however, said that he believed President Biden will make every effort to take the right path in dealing with the great Iranian nation.
