Roughly a month ago, Iran rejected a mediating offer from the European Union to hold direct nuclear talks with the United States. The nuclear talk that was set to be held in the coming days focused on setting a nuclear agreement with Iran and the U.S. The sanctions would advocate better U.S. – Iran relations.
The E.U. tried getting an agreement on dates for a meeting. E.U. Foreign Policy Chief Joseph Borrell said he was “reasonably optimistic” about the talks. Back in 2015, the U.S. had withdrawn from a nuclear agreement with Iran to then impose new sanctions on them. Iran responded by reducing its compliance with the restrictions on the nuclear program.

Then, 29 days ago, Iran sent a note saying it would not attend a meeting with the current limits on the nuclear program.
The U.S. wants to revive the 2015 nuclear deal that it once had with Iran, but on different terms. The Biden administration says Iran’s “assertive posture” does indeed, make it “all more important to reign in its nuclear activities.”
Iran will not renegotiate. Their leverage is to expand nuclear activities, and reduce but not eliminate the access of international inspectors. They also demand the U.S. remove all sanctions since President Trump took office, only then will Iran accept a nuclear deal with the United States.
