US knows that Iran will not extend 60-day period

TEHRAN, Jun. 16 (MNA) – Washington knows well that Tehran will not extend the 60-day deadline for other signatories of the JCPOA to secure Iran’s interests and save the international pact, said an Iranian parliamentary official, Hossein Amir-Abdollahian.

During the past year, western countries thought that Iran would comply with the JCPOA based on EU’s promises while not benefiting from the deal, he said on Saturday night in a local TV program.

The Islamic Republic adopted a wise decision on the case and the Supreme National Security Council statement gave US and the West a ‘serious shock’, Iranian Parliament Speaker Special Aide for International Affairs Hossein Amir-Abdollahian added.

US made miscalculations and thought that Iran would not adopt any action to gradually reduce its commitments to the JCPOA, he noted.

Iran announced on May 8 to revisit certain aspects of JCPOA in the face of lack of commitments from the other signatories to the agreement, stating that the remaining parties to the deal have a 60-day period to fulfill their obligations, particularly those regarding Tehran’s economic interests in the banking and energy sectors, before reducing further commitments to the agreement stage by stage.
