US Stance on Iran

What is the current United States stance on Iran and on negotiating with Iran? They claim that, when it comes to Iran, patience is “wearing thin”.
On Monday the Biden administration said that diplomatic efforts to get Iran back to nuclear negotiations are at a "critical place" and that international patience with Iranian delays in returning to the talks is "wearing thin."
U.S. special envoy for Iran, Robert Malley, told reporters that there is a "deep and growing" concern about Iran's continued intransigence and refusal to commit to a date to resume the negotiations in Vienna.
Malley said the U.S. and its partners want a diplomatic solution. He said the United States wants Iran back to comply with the 2015 nuclear deal.
Malley also said that the United States will not wait for long for this to happen. He said that the United States is considering options other than a purely diplomatic solution.
Malley said, "We're in a critical place.” He said that the talks with Iran in Vienna were suspended after a sixth round in June due to Iran's presidential elections and then stalled again as Iran installed their new Iranian president. Ebrahim Raisi.
But Raisi has been in Office since August. Enough time has passed for Iran to decide on a policy.
"At this point it's hard to find an innocent explanation as to why it's taking so long," Malley said. "The 'Plan B' being implemented right now appears to be the Iranian one, and that's something we have to be prepared for."
This is not looking good for the West.
