"The actions and policies of the Iranian government, including its proliferation and development of missiles and other asymmetric and conventional weapons, its network and campaign of regional aggression, its support for terrorist groups and the malicious activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps and the like, continue to pose an unusual and extreme threat to national security, foreign policy and the economy of the United States," said in the message.

As you know, the United States unilaterally introduced trade and economic sanctions against Iran on May 6, 1995.

At the end of February this year, Iran ruled out the possibility of holding an informal meeting with the United States and the EU countries to discuss ways to save the failed nuclear deal in 2015.

The new administration of President Joe Biden has said it is ready to negotiate with Iran to renew an agreement that would lift economic sanctions against Tehran. For its part, Washington demands that Iran give up acquiring nuclear weapons.
