Kremlin comments on Iran’s cuts to nuclear deal commitments
Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin was regretting the consequences arising from Iran cutting back on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program after the U.S. unilateral withdrawal from the deal.
"The Russian diplomacy will continue working," he pledged. "We will also be expecting the results of the work of an IAEA commission, which will be convened in the coming days," TASS cited Peskov as saying.
The Kremlin representative specifically underlined that the situation is concerning. "Russia is primarily intending to continue the dialogue and efforts on the diplomatic front," he said, adding that Russia remains a backer of the JCPOA.
Peskov recalled that it is the Russian side and President Putin warned about "the negative consequences, which would inevitably arise" after one of the parties to the JCPOA decided to cease fulfilling its obligations and quit the deal.
