Zarif: Iran to further retreat from nuclear deal if Europe takes no action by Thursday
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the Islamic Republic will further lower its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), unless the European signatories to the accord take action to salvage the pact by Thursday.
Zarif said Iranian President Hassan Rouhani would soon announce details of the cuts, adding that Iran would, nevertheless, continue its negotiations with the other parties to the deal.
The Iranian diplomat stressed that Iran’s suspension of commitments is still reversible.
"Measures of the third step would be definitely carried out if the Europeans failed to fulfill their obligations in due time, but we have repeatedly said that whenever the Europeans fully implement the JCPOA, we are also ready to fully implement it," PressTV cited Zarif as saying.
