Iranian FM slams US, European performance in JCPOA

In his long letter to Josep Borrell, Mohammad-Javad Zarif noted that if the other parties fulfill their obligations, Iran would also fulfill its commitments.

Following the unilateral and illegal withdrawal of the United States from the JCPOA (May 8, 2018), Iran tried to maintain the nuclear agreement, provided that the other parties to the agreement adhered to their obligations, but the Europeans did not succeed in the practical measures to maintain the agreement.

The Islamic Republic of Iran also suspended voluntary actions under the JCPOA on February 23 within the framework of the Law on 'Strategic Action Plan to Lift Sanctions and Protect Iranian Nation’s Interests'.
