Russian PM calls Iran’s stance on JCPOA rational and powerful
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev hailed Iran’s stance on the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), after the United States withdrawal from the accord.
Speaking a meeting with Iranian First Vice-President Eshaq Jahangiri in Turkmenistan, Medvedev said that the U.S. is pursuing broad policies against Iran and Russia and increasing its pressures on the two countries day by day.
He further said Moscow regards Tehran’s stance on the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA as rational and powerful, Tasnim reported.
The Russian PM added that the U.S. withdrawal was a measure taken under groundless pretexts and all countries understand this.
Jahangiri, for his part, said all parties to the JCPOA should meet their obligations under the deal, adding that Iran reduced some of its nuclear commitments a year after the U.S. withdrawal from the deal and the imposition of its cruel and inhumane sanctions against the Iranian nation.
