US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has said that if Iran fully abides by the nuclear deal, the US is ready to rejoin the deal and can begin negotiations for it.
The ‘Joint Comprehensive Action Plan’ (JCPOA) or Iran nuclear deal is considered a major achievement of former President Barack Obama’s term. But the former Donald Trump administration had separated the US from the agreement.
In relation to Iran, Antony Blinken said, President Joe Biden has stated very clearly that if Iran re-fulfills all its obligations under the JCPOA, America will do the same and then we will do our allies and partners Will use that platform to increase the relationship with. But we are far away from that and Iran is not following it on many fronts.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said that the US-China relationship is certainly very important and the two countries can work together on issues like climate change. After assuming the post of foreign minister, Blinken said, there are some conflicting aspects of this relationship.
On one hand it is competitive and on the other hand it is collaborative. He said that their relationship on climate change is cooperative where working together is in mutual interest of both countries. Blinken said, I hope we can take it forward.
Antony Blinken raised concerns about the state of human rights in Russia and the safety of opposition leader Alexey Navalny. He said, this thing keeps coming to my mind again and again that the Russian government is so scared and afraid of a man, Navalny. He said that the US is looking into all these matters and it is a matter of concern. The matter of giving ‘nerve agent’ (poison) to Navalni is also worrying.
