With The Head Of The UN Nuclear Watchdog In Tehran, Iran Announces It Will Limit International Monitoring Of Its Nuclear Sites


Iran's top diplomat insisted Sunday the United States must lift economic sanctions imposed on it by the Trump administration before the 2015 nuclear pact can be revived. 

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif's remarks came as Tehran confirmed it would begin limiting additional international monitoring of its nuclear sites Tuesday, a move that for Iran represents another lean away from the accord exited by the U.S. in 2018. 

Zarif's comments also follow an offer from President Joe Biden's administration to meet with Iran and other world powers involved in negotiating the agreement.
