On Biden's Inauguration Day, Iran says 'ball in U.S. court' over atomic contest

"Trump is dead but the nuclear deal is still alive," Iranian President Rouhani said.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani asked the approaching U.S. organization on Wednesday to re-visitation of a 2015 atomic arrangement and lift sanctions on Tehran, while inviting the finish of "dictator" President Donald Trump's time.  

President-elect Joe Biden, who gets down to business on Wednesday, has said the United States will rejoin the agreement, which remembers limitations for Iran's atomic work, if Tehran resumes severe consistence.  

"The ball is in the U.S. court now. In the event that Washington re-visitations of Iran's 2015 atomic arrangement, we will likewise completely regard our responsibilities under the settlement," Rouhani said in a broadcast bureau meeting.  

"Today, we expect the approaching U.S. organization to re-visitation of the standard of law and submit themselves, and on the off chance that they can, in the following four years, to eliminate all the dark spots of the past four years," he said.  

Strains have developed among Tehran and Washington since 2018, when Trump quit the arrangement among Iran and six world powers that tried to restrict Tehran's atomic program and forestall it creating nuclear weapons. Washington reimposed sanctions that have gravely hit Iran's economy.  

Iran, which denies truly looking for atomic arms, fought back to Trump's "most extreme pressing factor" strategy by bit by bit penetrating the understanding. Tehran has over and over said it can rapidly switch those infringement if U.S. sanctions are eliminated.

"Dictator Trump's political vocation and his unpropitious rule are over today and his 'most extreme pressing factor' strategy on Iran has totally fizzled," Rouhani said. "Trump is dead yet the atomic arrangement is as yet alive."  

Antony Blinken, Biden's decision for secretary of state, said on Tuesday the U.S. would not take a snappy choice on whether to rejoin the agreement.  

Biden seems to consider a to be to the arrangement as an introduction to more extensive chats on Iran's atomic work, its ballistic rockets and local exercises. In any case, Tehran has precluded stopping its rocket program or changing its territorial strategy.  

Biden's decision to lead the Pentagon, resigned Army General Lloyd Austin, said on Tuesday that Iran represented a danger to American partners in the district and powers positioned in the Middle East.  

"The United States and other Western nations have turned our district to a liability, not Iran," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told.
