Lavrov: situation evolving around JCPOA unacceptable

The situation that has evolved around the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action is unacceptable, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in a foreword to the meeting with his Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif.

"We will have to discuss the unacceptable situation, which has evolved around the JCPOA, the situation, which has evolved because of the United States’ irresponsible behavior, which abandoned its commitments enshrined in the relevant UN Security Council resolution," TASS cited him as saying.

The Russian top diplomat noted that Moscow values Tehran’s commitment to the reached agreements and the UN Security Council resolution "as was once again clarified today in Tehran’s corresponding statement," Lavrov added.
