Japan welcomes Iran's decision to stay in JCPOA

Beijing, May 8, IRNA – Iran's decision is to stay in the 2015 nuclear deal (JCPOA) and Japan welcomes this decision, said Japanese Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga on Wednesday.

However, he noted that Japan is closely monitoring the situation after Iran suspended some commitments under the deal.

Reiterating that Japan supports Iran nuclear deal signed between Iran and six world powers in 2015, Suga said that US tough stances on Iran have put Japan in difficult conditions, but Tokyo is still trying to save the deal.

Exactly one year after theh US unilateral exit from the JCPOA, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that Iran will give a 60-day moratorium to the states parties to the deal to remedy their breaches and restore Iran's interests enshrined by the international accord.

He said that Iran will suspend selling its enriched uranium and heavy water during the two-month period.

If the European parties come back to the negotiating table and make compensations during the mentioned time Iran will return to the previous conditions; otherwise it will suspend two more commitments, the president added.
