Iran demands US show goodwill
Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi said on Tuesday that the United States should prove its "goodwill and determination" to revive Tehran's 2015 nuclear pact as months of indirect talks between the long-time foes have led nowhere. "By exiting the JCPOA, the United States violated the agreement and the principle of good faith. America should demonstrate its goodwill and determination," Raisi said in a speech at the General Assembly, referring to Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action between Tehran and six world powers. Former president Donald Trump reneged on that deal in 2018, arguing it was too generous, and restored harsh sanctions on Iran.
