US ban on aircraft sale violation of JCPOA

TEHRAN, Jul. 13 (MNA) – A senior official of Foreign Ministry and member of Iran’s nuclear negotiating team said Iran will not give up to anything but the full implementation of JCPOA.

The US refraining from selling airplanes to Iran, violates JCPOA and Iran will deal with the issue accordingly, Hamid Baeedinejad said while speaking to reporters at a press conference on the occasion of the first anniversary of signing the JCPOA on Wednesday.

“JCPOA is one of the most complex international cases and has different aspects that had to be considered during the negotiations,” he noted.

Underlining that Iranian nation will not be satisfied with anything less than the implementation of JCPOA, Baeedinejad said the implementation of nuclear deal has been partially satisfactory and the negotiating team believes it has not been violated despite ambiguities and problems in the way.

Emphasizing on a realistic view on JCPOA, FM senior official said the deal has established a major development in the international level.

“Tehran had more expectations on the removal of economic, banking and financial restrictions, but despite all these deficiencies there is a feeling of hope inside our country to remove these obstacles through more talks," he said.

He underlined that the agreement caused great optimism in Iran on unrelated issues, but those expectations are fortunately being balanced and adjusted to reality.

Regarding the recent statements made by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon accusing Iran of failing to commit to its obligations, adding some of the media printed his early draft report and attributed the remarks to Ban Ki-moon, while he had not finalized his report.

Responding to a question on missile program, he said Iran’s missile capability is at the service of the country’s national interests and it has fully been defined based on defensive goals and is an important instrument to defend Iran’s territorial integrity and a pillar of power in the region.

He condemned the efforts made by US House to cancel Iran’s contracts signed with Airbus and Boeing, which is a clear violation of JCPOA.

Baeedinejad stressed that red lines of the country have never been crossed during the nuclear talks. “No negotiator has the right to cross the red lines,” he underlined.

In many areas, he noted, restrictions have been lifted, including in oil, energy and shipping fields, however, still some concerns remain about the banking issues between Iranian and foreign banks.

"In some fields, including banking, we still haven't reached the expected level, although good steps have been taken in this regard and some connections have been made with big international banks," he added.
