An Iranian lawmaker commended French President Emmanuel Macron for stressing the need to protect the nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), signed between Iran and the 5+1 Group (US, UK, France, Russia, China, plus Germany).

Macron’s comments at the UN General Assembly on September 19, about the importance of saving the JCPOA, were remarkable and significant, chairman of Iran-France Parliamentary Friendship Group Kazem Jalali said in a meeting with Director General of the International Diplomatic Academy of France Michel Duclos in Tehran on Monday, Tasnim News Agency reported.

He stressed Iran’s commitment to the nuclear accord, calling on the other signatories to honor the deal.

Jalali also slammed Trump’s speech at the UN General Assembly against Iran as illogical and irrational, warning that withdrawal from the agreement would elicit a proportional reaction from Tehran.

Speaking at the same meeting, Duclos described the JCPOA as a good deal that has raised the level of cooperation between Iran and Europe.

The French president and the European Union share views on safeguarding the JCPOA, he added.

Iran and the Group 5+1 signed the JCPOA in July 2015. The deal went into effect in January 2016.
