Lavrov, Zarif dismiss US new plot for JCPOA as 'unfeasible'

TEHRAN, Apr. 28 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his Russian counterpart Sergey Lavrov discussed the latest plot devised by Washington to put more pressure on Iran.

In a phone conversation on Tuesday, both sides agreed that the US ‘delusional’ plan for Iran nuclear deal is ‘unfeasible, according to a statement issued by the Iranian Foreign Ministry.

According to a report by the New York Times, Washington is preparing a legal argument that the US is still a participant to the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran in order to put more pressure on Iran. “Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is preparing a legal argument that the United States remains a participant in the Iran nuclear accord that [US] President [Donald] Trump has renounced,” reads the report, adding, that the new plan is “part of an intricate strategy to pressure the United Nations Security Council to extend an arms embargo on Tehran or see far more stringent sanctions re-imposed on the country.”

Earlier on Monday, Zarif took to Twitter to condemn the new US plans, urging Pompeo to “Stop dreaming”. He noted that US has already declared “ceasing US participation” in the JCPOA.  

Zarif and Lavrov also conferred on the latest political developments in Afghanistan and efforts to achieve a political reconciliation in the country.
