Russia trying to convince US to fulfill Iran deal: Deputy FM

Moscow, Aug 29, IRNA – Russia is trying to convince US to stay committed to Iran nuclear deal also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.

'Russia is currently working on persuading the US leadership to keep on implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran's nuclear program,' Sputnik quoted Ryabkov as saying on Tuesday.

'We are focusing our efforts … on convincing our partners in the US government that they need to fulfill their duties under Iran’s nuclear deal.'

'If the United States under any circumstances will withdraw from the nuclear deal with Iran … any side [which exits the agreement] will strike an irreparable blow to the international and regional security.'
