SULAIMANI (ESTA) — A majority of Iran’s parliament on Sunday issued a statement of conditions to be met if Tehran is to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal with global powers, the country’s official IRNA news agency reported.

The 250 parliamentarians stated that U.S. and European parties should guarantee not to exit a revived agreement and that the “snapback mechanism” will not be triggered by them, according to Reuters.

It also demanded the lifting of all U.S. sanctions in a verifiable process.

Indirect talks between Iran and the United States on reviving the tattered agreement resumed last week after a 10-day hiatus and officials from the other parties to the accord – Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia – have shuttled between the two sides as they seek to close gaps.

The agreement began to unravel in 2018 when then-President Donald Trump withdrew the United States and reimposed far reaching economic sanctions on Iran, which then began breaching the accord’s limits on its uranium enrichment activity.
