Kremlin: JCPOA depends on Iran's reaction to US demands
The Kremlin expects Tehran to evaluate the demands the US has laid out for a new nuclear deal, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said, adding that Moscow believed it important to implement the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
"The question is what is Tehran’s view of these 12 demands. The Kremlin, Tehran and the European countries involved have reaffirmed their commitment to the JCPOA for Iran’s nuclear program," Peskov said when asked what was the Kremlin’s view of the US demands to Iran.
The Kremlin spokesman pointed out that Russia and the European countries "have many times expressed hope that Tehran will remain within the agreement." "In fact, the US is the only country pulling out of the deal, with all the negative consequences that entails," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
"This is why the important question is what Tehran’s attitude to that is because the deal itself is still there, it only does not involve Washington anymore," the Kremlin spokesman noted.
