France reiterates preserving Iran deal

Tehran, Jan 14, IRNA – France President Emmanuel Macron in a phone call with the Zionist regime Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Saturday called for respecting Iran nuclear deal by all parties.

Macron urged all signatories to comply with their commitments under the nuclear accord also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He also referred to Iran missile program and the regional activities of the country.

Iran has repeatedly announced that its missile program is not part of nuclear talks.

US President Donald Trump, who had said his administration would decertify the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, decided on Friday to extend the sanctions waiver to the country for the third time as a part of the landmark deal officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He claimed that this is the 'last time' that he certified the JCPOA unless the amendments that he had mentioned earlier be included to the landmark nuclear deal.

Since Trump announced his decision on Iran deal, many European and American officials expressed support of the deal.

“We remain committed to the continued full and effective implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” EU said taking note of US President Donald Trump’s recent statement on Iran deal.

Meanwhile, concurrent with Trump’s decision, US Department of the Treasury in an unfair and hostile move added 14 other Iranian individuals and institutes to the list of the sanctions under the pretest of human rights violation and involvement in missile program.

Reacting to Trump’s anti-Iran policies, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in his Twitter page wrote “Trump's policy & today’s announcement amount to desperate attempts to undermine a solid multilateral agreement, maliciously violating its paras 26, 28 & 29. JCPOA is not renegotiable: rather than repeating tired rhetoric, US must bring itself into full compliance -just like Iran.”
