Iran says Europe’s proposals not enough to save nuclear deal – IRNA

LONDON: Iran’s nuclear chief said on Tuesday that Europe’s proposals to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal after the U.S. withdrawal from the pact were not satisfying for Tehran, warning that all sides would lose if Iran is sidelined by the West, the IRNA state news agency said.

IRNA reported that the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, Ali Akbar Salehi had shown Iran’s dissatisfaction with European proposals to save the nuclear deal in a meeting with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres.

Referring to Iran’s important regional role, Salehi was quoted as saying: "if it continues like this, all sides will lose."
