Iran to Re­main Com­mit­ted to JCPOA

Iran News - - DOMESTIC -

TEHRAN (IRNA) - Head of Strate­gic Coun­cil on For­eign Re­la­tions Ka­mal Khar­razi said on Mon­day that as long as Europe re­mains com­mit­ted to JCPOA and eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties are in place, Iran will also com­ply with the deal.

Un­der the 2015 nu­clear deal, of­fi­cially known as Joint Com­pre­hen­sive Plan of Ac­tion (JCPOA), Iran got re­lief from in­ter­na­tional sanc­tions in re­turn for curbs on its nu­clear pro­gram.

In a meet­ing with the Nor­we­gian Am­bas­sador to Iran Lars Nor­drum , he added that Iran’s poli­cies are in line with re­gional se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity and Iran’s pres­ence in Iraq and Syria takes place at the re­quest of the Syr­ian and Iraqi gov­ern­ments to fight ter­ror­ism and strengthen se­cu­rity of Iran and friendly states.

The Nor­we­gian am­bas­sador, for his part, un­der­lined that his coun­try and Europe are still com­mit­ted to the JCPOA and that’s for the same rea­son that they are en­gaged in eco­nomic ac­tiv­i­ties with Iran.

“De­spite pres­sures by the US re­gard­ing the JCPOA, we are try­ing to ad­vance our projects with Iran,” he said.
