Russian diplomat highlights JCPOA parties' compliance

Tehran, Sept 1, IRNA - Russian Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov said Tuesday JCPOA joint commission meeting indicated that participants are committed to the deal.

"The meeting of the Joint Commission on #JCPOA today in Vienna demonstrated that its participants are fully committed to the nuclear deal and are determined to do their best to preserve it," Ulyanov wrote in his Twitter account on Tusesday.

The JCPOA Joint Commission meeting was held on Tuesday at 11:00 local time in Vienna at the level of deputy foreign ministers and directors general of Foreign Ministries of the participant states.

Meanwhile, Secretary-General of the European External Action Service Helga Schmid in a Twitter message said: "Important to see that participants are united in resolve to preserve the #IranDeal and find a way to ensure full implementation of the agreement despite current challenges."

US President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA and restored US sanctions on Iran in May 2018. Washington has also been trying hard to restore all international sanctions, which has been turned down by the UNSC members.

Last June, the White House announced that it would present a resolution to the UNSC to extend Iran’s arms embargo, which was roundly turned down on August 15. Only the US and Dominican Republic gave a yes to the draft resolution. The incident is considered a humiliating failure for US diplomacy system.
