TEHRAN -- Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman, Saeed Khatibzadeh, on Monday ruled out the likelihood of a temporary deal between Iran and remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the JCPOA, in the ongoing Vienna meetings, saying that such a deal will not meet Iran's demands.

"We should all try to make sure that the return of the United States to the JCPOA is accompanied by necessary guarantees and verification, and that the lifting of sanctions which should have been done under the JCPOA is done effectively," said Khatibzadeh, adding that none of these can be achieved by an "interim" agreement.
