Other JCPOA signatories should keep US committed to deal

EHRAN, Oct. 12 (MNA) – Senior Adviser to Iran's Leader Velayati called on the other five signatories to Iran’s nuclear deal to force US into complying with its commitments under the international agreement.

Speaking to reporters on Thursday, the Head of Strategic Research Center at Iran’s Expediency Council voiced uncertainty about US President’s final decision toward the nuclear deal, saying that Donald Trump is “unpredictable”.

He went on to add, “the Islamic Republic of Iran has its own set of measures and approaches and has proven its commitment to the nuclear deal on numerous occasions.”

“The IAEA Director-General has confirmed Iran’s compliance under the agreement in all of its eight reports so far,” Ali Akbar Velayati said. “It is not acceptable to any side that someone without any rationality should claim that Iran has not been committed to the agreement. The only criterion for judgment is the reports of the IAEA Director-General.”

Velayati stressed, “whatever measure the US is going to take toward Iran and the nuclear issues, we will preserve the right to make an appropriate response.”

“Other signatories to the nuclear deal have a responsibility to force the United States into complying with its international commitments,” Velayati said. “Russia, China, UK, France and Germany should keep the US committed to its obligations as determined by the IAEA as well as the nuclear negotiations, because the violation has come from the US and Iran has remained faithful to the agreement.”
