Zarif says sanctions, JCPOA compliance mutually exclusive

TEHRAN, Jul. 06 (MNA) – Iranian FM Zarif posted a tweet late on Thursday saying that he is expecting counterparts to offer tangible solutions as Iran will not abide by the deal if sanctions return to their place.

Iran has a “crystal clear” demand from the other signatory states of the nuclear deal of July 14, 2015, except US, says Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

The Iranian diplomatic chief made the call late on Thursday posting a message on his Twitter page, warning the world that having both Iran comply with the nuclear agreement and sanctions against Iran at the same time is impossible. He has made it clear hours before the Friday meeting of EU/E3+2 top diplomats in Vienna where the package to keep Iran in the deal is to be discussed.

“In Vienna for JCPOA Ministerial Meeting. My mandate is crystal clear: Forge practical solutions. Expecting EU/E3+2 counterparts to make verifiable & actionable commitments rather than lofty & obscure promises. Make no mistake: Sanctions & JCPOA compliance are mutually exclusive.”
