Some Western partners want Iran to make a mistake and declare steps, which will be in breach of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told an international forum, the Primakov Readings, on Tuesday.
Iran's envoy to the UN denounced the US attempts to portray Tehran's conventional missile program as a breach of Security Council Resolution 2231 that endorsed a 2015 nuclear deal, saying Washington must first explain why it has, itself, violated that international document by abandoning the landmark agreement.
Iran’s envoy to the United Nations slammed Washington’s ‘morally wrong’ measures against other countries, saying that unilateral sanctions amount to collective punishment and violate basic human rights.
Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi said Tehran will keep all options on the table if the United States violates the landmark 2015 nuclear deal signed between the Islamic Republic and the P5+1 group of countries.
Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister for Legal and International Affairs Abbas Araqchi has accused Washington and its allies of having done whatever in their power, over the past year, to throw a wrench in the implementation of the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), but Iran’s vigilance has foiled all such plots. He said Tehran will not re-negotiate the JCPOA, adding that if US President-elect Donald Trump goes ahead with his campaign pledge to “tear apart the deal, Iran will burn it.”
