U.S. President-elect Joe Biden will insist Iran agrees to new demands if it wants the U.S. to return to a nuclear deal and lift sanctions, The New York Times said on Wednesday.

The Times said the Biden administration would seek to extend the duration of “restrictions on Iran’s production of fissile material that could be used to make a (nuclear) bomb” in a new round of negotiations.


Iran would also have to address its “malign” regional activities through proxies in Lebanon, Iraq, Syria, and Yemen in the talks that would have to include its Arab neighbors like Saudi Arabia, the report said.

President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the deal in 2018 and has reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran as part of a “maximum pressure” campaign against the US’s arch enemy.

During the vote, Mr Biden, who beat Mr Trump last month at the polls, said he plans to give Iran a “credible way back to diplomacy.”

In Wednesday’s interview, the coming US theatre The Chairman stuck by that opinion and said It’s going to be difficult, but yes.”

“See a great deal is said about accurate missiles and other things that destabilise the region,” Mr Biden said.

However, he said the best way to achieve stability in the region is to deal with the nuclear programme.”

Mr Biden cautioned that Iran would buy a nuclear weapons bombshell in the Near East “and the last thing we need is an increase of nuclear capacity in this part of the world.”

“We will enter into negotiations and follow-up agreements to tighten and extend Iran’s nuclear restrictions, as well as deal with the missile programme, in consultation with our allies and partners,” he said.

Mr Biden is quoted as saying that if necessary, the US still had the choice, and Iran was aware of it to enforce foreign back sanctions.

The 2015 nuclear deal—formally known as the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Action Plan) — has helped Iran avert sanctions in exchange for limitations on the nuclear programme.

The Islamic republic has retaliated for its contribution to the deal in reaction to Trump’s withdrawal.

The government of Iran accepted Mr Biden’s win with caution, but Conservatives accused Biden of giving in to what they claim is an “illusion” of a transition by America’s “Great Satan.”
