The Biden administration rejected as “false” any claims that it was engaged in talks to revive the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.
“Since September especially our focus has been on standing up, … for the fundamental freedoms of the Iranian people,” US State Department spokesman Ned Price told reporters in Washington on Tuesday.
In addition, he said, the US is working to “countering Iran’s deepening military partnership with Russia and its support for Russia’s war in Ukraine.”
