Iran seeks respectful ties with all countries: MP

Tehran, IRNA – A high-ranking member of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Majlis (Iran’s Parliament) said on Monday that the West thought it could force Iran through pressure and threat, but Iran seeks respectful ties with all countries.

The United States was the party that violated the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and after it was signed and Europeans didn’t do their commitments, Abbas Moqtadaei Khorasgani said in an interview with IRNA political correspondent.

Iran has abided by all its commitments in the deal and has had a good cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), as the sole entity qualified to verify Iran’s compliance, Moqtadaei added.

He underlined that the US and European participants to the deal are the ones who must do the commitments and they’d better not miss the opportunity as a new administration has taken office in Iran.

Iran is a sovereign country, the MP stressed, seeking for respectful ties with all countries. 

He added that Iran wouldn’t follow the West’s will under pressure.

He advised the US and European participants of the JCPOA, which was also endorsed by the United Nations Security Council, to abide by their commitments, so that Iran could do the same.
