Iran is opposed to a step-by-step plan for the resolution of its disputes with the United States over the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a senior Iranian security official told Press TV on Wednesday.

Iran would only accept the lifting of sanctions by the United States in a verifiable manner before the latter returns to the JCPOA, said the official on the condition of anonymity.

The new U.S. government has failed to lift the sanctions that the ex-team at the White House imposed on Iran after leaving the JCPOA in May 2018, he noted.

The only way for Tehran to remember its scaled-down commitments under the deal is for Washington to lift all the sanctions, he concluded.

Saeed Khatibzadeh, spokesman for Iran's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, said on Monday that Iran "does not consider" the step-by-step plan to settle the nuke disputes.
