Iran hails 2nd implementation anniversary of JCPOA

Tehran, Jan 20, IRNA – Iran's Foreign Ministry Public Relations Office in a statement on Saturday marked the second anniversary of the implementation of the July 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the same deal that former US President Barack Obama, after agreeing with it unwillingly, said he would remove every single nut and bolt of Iran's nuclear program if he could, the statement said.

And again, it is the same accord labeled by current US President Donald Trump as “the worst deal ever” and “one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into”, it added.

The Iran Foreign Ministry statement also derided at some comments that the JCPOA has been dictated by the Americans.

'The JCPOA is the outcome of 28 months of negotiations of the trustworthy, courageous, brave and faithful sons of the nation,' it said.

The nucear deal between Iran and 6 world powers (US, Russia, China, Britain, France, Germany) was signed in July 2015 and its implementation started on January 16, 2016.
