Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian said that the United States is in hurry to rejoin the 2015 nuclear deal, calling on the American officials and Washington’s lead negotiator in the JCPOA talks to ‘quit hypocrisy’.
Speaking to reporters in Tehran on Wednesday, Amir Abdollahian said the exchange of messages between Iran and the US in the course of talks on the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is constantly in progress.
“The last exchange of messages has occurred during the past 72 hours,” he added.
While the US has signaled, via messages conveyed by a number of foreign ministers, that it is in a hurry to rejoin the JCPOA, the American officials claim in media interviews that the JCPOA is not Washington’s priority and continue to support the riots in Iran, the top Iranian diplomat added, as cited by Tasnim news agency.
“We have not negotiated for negotiations, but for results. I would advise Mr. Robert Malley (US lead negotiator) and the American officials to stop hypocrisy,” Amir Abdollahian stated further.
He underlined that Iran will never allow its red lines to be crossed under the US pressures, will protect its national interests, and continue with the efforts in the course of negotiations.
Elsewhere in his remarks, Amir Abdollahian warned certain European governments against pushing for a special session at the UN Human Rights Council about Iran, adding, “I have talked to a number of European foreign ministers and EU foreign policy chief Borrell. If the Europeans do not stop such an unconstructive approach, they will face our retaliatory and effective response.”
