Zarif: Europe not ready yet to invest in saving JCPOA
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the European states do not seem ready yet to put investment into saving the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
"The Europeans claim they were willing to maintain the JCPOA, but we have not seen Europe yet to be ready for an investment," the minister said upon arrival in New York, where he is going to attend a high-level UN meeting.
Expressing one's interest and preparedness to save an international agreement "is totally different from being ready to make the investments required to save that deal and the Europeans have not done that yet," Zarif added.
Yesterday, France, Britain, and Germany have called for the resumption of dialog and an end to the escalation over Iran’s nuclear deal, amid heightened tensions between Washington and Tehran, IRNA recalls.
