Iran has warned that if an agreement is not reached with the remaining European signatories to the JCPOA nuclear deal by Thursday, September 7, then the Islamic Republic will begin a third stage of reducing its commitments to the nuclear deal.
A senior Iranian official confirmed on Wednesday that Tehran would return to its nuclear deal commitment only if it gets $15 billion for oil sales over four months.
"Europe has another two-month deadline for negotiations, agreement, and a return to its commitments," said Rouhani. The Iranian president expressed doubt that an agreement would be reached by the Thursday deadline.
