The White House confirmed the Biden administration’s plan to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal.

In a press briefing on Friday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki discussed Biden’s foreign policy goals with Iran. She said the administration will seek diplomacy as a way to constrain Iran’s nuclear power, adding Iran must also choose to comply with the deal.

“He believes that through following diplomacy, the U.S. should seek to lengthen and strengthen these nuclear constraints and address other issues of concern, including Iran’s ballistic missiles program and regional activity,” Psaki stated. “Iran must resume compliance with the significant nuclear constraints under the deal.”

Psaki went on to say working with European allies will play an important role in reinstating the Nuclear deal.

The Trump administration pulled the U.S. from the deal in 2018, saying it gave billions of dollars to Iran and did nothing to stop them from building ballistic missiles.
