Zarif says US unable to weaken JCPOA

TEHRAN, Nov. 05 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the United States, after 1.5 years of effort, still cannot weaken the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Zarif made the remarks in the Iranian Parliament on Monday as he was answering questions posed by some PMs regarding some international issues, including JCPOA.

No deal would meet all of a negotiating party’s demands, he said, adding, “today, we can see, that, by the grace of God, the JCPOA was so much in favor of Iran's interests that America has withdrawn from it scandalously.”

The United States was claiming to bring down Iran’s oil sale to zero by today, but issued a statement saying that they are giving six more months to Iranian oil buyers, he added.

Zarif went on to say that the US was after creating a consensus against Iran but the agreement was so strong that they failed.

Iran’s nuclear program is in a situation which if resumed, it will be much better and improved than before, Zarif highlighted.

At the end of the session, lawmakers found Zarif’s answers convincing with the majority of votes.
