    Iran, which has repeatedly called on the US to lift sanctions on Tehran if it wants to salvage the 2015 nuclear deal, has already hailed the discussions with UN nuclear watchdog chief Rafael Grossi as "fruitful".

    Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), is holding a press conference on Sunday after meeting senior Iranian officials in Tehran.

    Grossi visited the Iranian capital over the weekend ahead of Tehran's plans to partly suspend IAEA inspections of its nuclear sites.

    Back in December 2020, the Iranian parliament passed a bill that would see the country scale back some of its obligations under the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear deal.
