Beijing, May 17, IRNA – Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Friday that it is the responsibility of the international community to save the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He said the world countries should spare no efforts to take the necessary action to protect the JCPOA the way Iran does, if they assume that the deal is a significant achievement.

Speaking to IRNA, Zarif said the international community has confined iteself to issuing statements or making comments instead of taking a tangible action to protect the JCPOA.

He said it was quite evident of what nature a practical action should be, noting that what is needed is the normalization of Iran's economic relations which has been stipulated in the JCPOA.

UNSC resolution 2231, exactly refers to this point, therefore it is among the duties of the international community, other JCPOA's members and our friends at the (JCPOA) treaty such as China and Russia who mind this achievement to be protected, to take practical measures to benefit Iranian people from the JCPOA's incentive and privileges, he added.

Iran's foreign minister arrived in Beijing as part of his regional tour Friday morning and is to confer with the country's high ranking officials on issues of mutual interests along with regional and global developments.

Iranian foreign minister is to confer with his Chinese counterpart Wang Yi on regional and global issues this afternoon.
