The European Union at the talks on the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) made a proposal to ease sanctions against the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC). It is reported by Interfax with reference to Politico.

According to the publication, this proposal provides that persons who are not US citizens and maintain business relations with Iranians not included in the US sanctions lists will not be subject to restrictions even if their Iranian partners do business with sanctioned Iranian organizations or persons. . These just include the IRGC, its officials, as well as subsidiaries and affiliated companies, specifies Politico.

In turn, US special envoy for Iran Rob Malley told the newspaper that Washington does not change its rules when it comes to applying sanctions. In addition, the EU representative did not comment on the proposal to the publication, and high-ranking US officials said they did not conduct public negotiations and did not comment on media leaks.

The exclusion of the IRGC from the US sanctions list was one of the main demands of Tehran during the negotiations.

Earlier, we recall, Malley said that the US “does not expect much” from the negotiations, but “welcomes the efforts of the EU and is preparing to make a good-faith attempt to achieve a deal.” The diplomat added that “it will soon become clear whether Iran is ready to do the same.”

Recall that at the end of July, the head of European diplomacy, Josep Borrell, presented proposals for the resumption of the “nuclear deal”, which “include all the compromises reached by all parties.” The Iranian Foreign Ministry, after studying Borrell’s initiative, supported the idea of ​​resuming negotiations.
