US in no position to raise issues about JCPOA: Foreign Ministry

TEHRAN, May 07 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry reminded the world of American officials' habit of breaking promises and violating agreements.

On the second anniversary of US withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Foreign Ministry shared a post in its Twitter account about the deal.

“The United States hates the JCPOA, it has withdrawn from and violates the deal while punishing all those committed to the JCPOA,” wrote Foreign Ministry in Persian.

“The US is in no position to raise issues about the deal,” it added while also posting a picture which shows eight instances of US’ breaching its commitments.

The remarks come as the US has started efforts to extend arms embargo on Iran which will end this October. Washington has announced that it will use all its tools in the United Nations Security Council to achieve its aim. However, such a resolution is believed to be vetoed by Russia and China. As a second approach, Washington will then try to argue that it is a JCPOA participant so as to trigger the snapback mechanism which will return UN sanctions against Iran. This is while US President Donald Trump ceased his country's participation in the JCPOA in May 2018 and re-imposed unilateral sanctions on Iran.
