US can attend JCPOA meetings if it lifts certain anti-Iran bans: Iranian official

Iran says the United States can take part in the meetings of the signatories to the Iran nuclear deal on the condition that it lifts sanctions against the country's oil and banking sectors.

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi made the remark during a press conference about the deal in Tehran on Sunday. He stressed, however, that the deal would under no circumstances be renegotiated and that it should be implemented precisely as it is.

In another development, Japanese Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary Yasutoshi Nishimura said on Monday that Japan was "seriously concerned and closely watching" the development of the nuclear deal. Mr. Nishimura urged Iran to immediately return to its commitment to the deal and avoid any further steps that would undermine the nuclear agreement.
