Russia: Some countries plotting against Iran

Moscow, Sept 29, IRNA – Unfortunately some countries are running machinations against Iran, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said.

Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is an agreement that will identify how to solve Iran nuclear issue and also some other issues in the world, Zakharova said.

'Iran was in the center of other countries' attention in the recent UNGA meeting,' she added.

She noted that despite the fact that the US signed nuclear agreement with Iran two years ago, the United States is plotting against Iran, she noted.

Now some US-led countries are trying to eliminate this agreement despite supports of Russia, China and Europe, Zakharova said.

'Russia and China fully support this agreement because it is a good example of resolving disputes through political means between countries,' she reiterated.

After Washington's May 8 exit from the historic Iran Deal the US gave 90 to 180 wind-down period to other countries before it starts re-imposing oil sanctions on Tehran on November 4.

Part of the US illegitimate sanctions were imposed on Iran on August 9.

US President Donald Trump also said he would reinstate the US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose “the highest level” of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

This is while, Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Yukiya Amano earlier in a statement announced that Iran has complied with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

'Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. It is essential that Iran continues to fully implement those commitments,' the statement read addressing a meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors.

'The IAEA continues to verify the non-diversion of nuclear material declared by Iran under its Safeguards Agreement. Evaluations regarding the absence of undeclared nuclear material and activities in Iran continue,' it added.
