Pres. Rouhani: "Europe has limited time to preserve JCPOA"
Tehran (KNA) - Iran's President Hassan Rouhani has told his French counterpart that Iran's benefits in the JCPOA must be guaranteed, adding Europe has little time to preserve the deal.
According to the official website of Iran's presidency, during the phone talk which took place on Wednesday evening, Iran's president described the United States’ repeated breaches of the JCPOA provisions as a historic humiliation for the US administration and said “in the current situation, Europe has a very limited time to save the JCPOA and must determine and announce its clear, firm stances on its obligations in the deal.
”Rouhani also told France's Emmanuel Macron “JCPOA was reached following long, continuous attempts from 2003 to 2015, and because of the Security Council endorsing it, it is an international agreement.”
Denouncing Trump’s move to withdraw from the JCPOA, the Iranian president said “the Islamic Republic of Iran is fully committed to its obligations in the JCPOA and will pursue its interests as it has so far, but unfortunately, the other side has not demonstrated a satisfactory performance.”
