US return to JCPOA must have no preconditions: Moscow

TEHRAN, Dec. 25 (MNA) – The United States must return to the fold of the Iranian nuclear deal without any preconditions or extra demands, said Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova.

"We proceed from the understanding that the United States’ return to the fold of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for the Iranian nuclear program must not be linked with any extra preconditions or requirements," Zakharova told a news briefing on Thursday, TASS reported. 

"We believe that progress in this respect will be achieved. We have taken note of the Iranian leadership’s repeated confirmations it is prepared to act precisely this way."

Zakharova recalled that the participants in the foreign minister-level meeting of the JCPOA signatories confirmed precisely this kind of attitude to the agreement.

"Attempts to reconfigure the nuclear deal ended in failure," Zakharova said. "It is alive and will continue to be implemented systematically, just as the UN Security Council’s Resolution 2231 (on the nuclear deal) the way it was unanimously approved on July 20, 2015. All countries, including the United States, are obliged to comply with this resolution without any reservations."
