Iran Gives EU 60-Day Deadline To Guarantee Nuclear Deal

The BBC reported that Zarif said on his first stop, China, that he hoped to secure a "clear future design" for the agreement. Note that both sides reiterated that will continue to fulfill the terms of AGREEMENT.

"We have an agreement that has been the result of 12 years of intense diplomatic efforts, that has been endorsed by the UN Security Council", Kocijancic said.

"The final aim of these negotiations is to seek assurances that the interests of the Iranian nation will be defended", Mohammad Javad Zarif said at the start of a meeting with his Russian counterpart Sergei Lavrov. After meeting him, Mogherini will host a consultation of German, French, and British foreign ministers on May 15 to discuss the Iran accord and the USA threat.

On may 8 the President of the United States Donald trump announced the withdrawal from the agreement on Iran's nuclear program and has announced new sanctions against the Iranian regime.

The usa will re-impose sanctions on Iran and firms dealing with this could be hit, angering signatories like France.

Meanwhile, Lavrov said that Russian Federation and Europe had a duty to "jointly defend their legal interests" in terms of the Iran deal.

It reiterated that Iran was preparing to resume "industrial scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" unless Europe provided solid guarantees it could maintain trade ties despite renewed United States sanctions.


Earlier on Sunday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran would remain committed to the deal "if the remaining five countries abide by the agreement".

"I'm hopeful in the days and weeks ahead we can come up with a deal that really works, that really protects the world from Iranian bad behaviour, not just their nuclear programme, but their missiles and their malign behaviour as well", Pompeo told Fox News Sunday.

France and other Western allies have been critical of Washington's plan to reimpose sanctions on any companies doing business with Iran.

After Moscow, Zarif will travel to Brussels to meet with European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, who is scheduled to host a meeting of German, French, and British foreign ministers on May 15 to discuss the accord.

Iran has expressed its opposition to Trump's move.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron last week urged Iran to stick to its commitments under the nuclear accord.

"Iran's interests in important areas and issues relevant to the JCPOA, like oil, gas, and petrochemicals sales, as well as banking relations should be clearly and explicitly defined and guaranteed", Rouhani said.
