Europe lack of compliance with JCPOA can lead to regional instability

TEHRAN, Nov. 12 (MNA) – Head of Iran's Foreign Policy Strategic Council Seyed Kamal Kharrazi said that Europe needs to live up to its commitments over the implementation of Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), for, lack of commitment of Europe in this respect can lead to instability in the region.

He made the remark in a meeting with former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin at the venue of the Embassy of Iran in France on Nov. 12 and urged European Union to abide by their commitments within the framework of JCPOA.

The two sides discussed regional issues, relationship between Iran and Europe, US policies in international arena and today’s situation of Europe in the world.

In this meeting, former French Prime Minister Dominique de Villepin pointed to Yemen war and said, “suitable ways have been paved for terminating war in Yemen, so that effective steps should be taken to stop murdering Yemenis by Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE).”

Turning to the US policies, de Villepin said, “US government is seeking unilateralism and destroying the organizations which were formed after the World War II. In the same direction, creating a deep gap between East and West Europe is one of the malicious objectives of the US government.”

Today, the world is in a very complicated and complex situation which requires new initiatives, he said, adding, “the situation in the Middle East region has been aggravated and new alliances are on the verge of formation.”

It is very likely that the Middle East region will face a critical crisis in the next two years due to the time of approaching US Presidential Election, he said, adding, “therefore, those countries which are seeking stability in the region need to be vigilant.”

For his part, Head of Iran's Foreign Policy Strategic Council Seyed Kamal Kharrazi pointed to the regional issue especially US pullout from Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and said, “under such circumstances, it is essential that Europe should live up to its commitments within JCPOA.

Europe’s compliance with JCPOA is a good indication of whether Europe can be trusted by Iran or not, he observed. 

Kharrazi once again emphasized that lack of Europe’s commitments over JCPOA will lead to instability in the region.
