A senior Iranian official reiterated that his country will not accept any division of the sanctions imposed by the United States on Iran into those that had been lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal and the ones unrelated to the nuclear issues.

Speaking to Press TV on the condition of anonymity on Wednesday, the senior official said “Iran will not accept a division of the Trump-era sanctions into JCPOA-related [ones] and [those] unrelated to the JCPOA.”

“For Iran, all the American sanctions — including the Obama-era sanctions, the sanctions restored by Trump and the additional sanctions in the Trump-era labeled as non-nuclear — must be terminated,” the official added.

In parallel, he emphasized that “Iran does not accept and recognize negotiations on a division of the sanctions. Iran’s condition for returning to its JCPOA commitments is the lasting removal of all the sanctions.”

The official said America and Europe must guarantee that the sanctions will not be restored on Iran again after removal.
