Iran called on the three European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal to honor the deal in practice “instead of voicing concern”.
Speaking at a press conference on Tuesday, spokesperson for the Iranian administration Ali Rabiee said the UK, France and Germany’s compliance with their obligations will help safeguard the accord, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“Iran cannot live up to its obligations unilaterally. Instead of voicing concern, the European countries had better return to their commitments to set the stage for the preservation of the JCPOA, which would benefit all,” he said, as quoted by Tasnim news agency.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran is the one that has complaints about the US and Europe’s violations of their commitments and major non-compliance with their obligations,” Rabiee said when asked about the position adopted by France which says Iran will face serious consequences because it is reneging on its JCPOA commitments and that Tehran should immediately return to its obligations.
The spokesman noted that Iran’s “remedial” measures whereby it scaled down its JCPOA commitments in five stages conform to the country’s rights stipulated in the nuclear deal, according to the government’s official website.
“If the parties to the JCPOA immediately return to their obligations under the JCPOA, Iran will stop implementing these remedial measures. So, it is not right to say that Iran is not making good on its commitments,” he explained.
