Iran Reiterates Commitment to Nuclear Deal, Calls on US to Comply

TEHRAN – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reiterated on Friday that his country was committed to a nuclear agreement it signed with six major powers in 2015, and asked the United States to do the same.

Zarif was responding to harsh statements from Washington that called for a revised nuclear pact as Iran continued to pose a threat to the world, local press reported.

“The worn-out allegations by the US cannot cover the country’s admission of Iran’s implementation of its nuclear deal undertakings,” Zarif said, as cited by the local Fars news agency.

The Iranian Foreign Minister said that the implementation of the pact by the Islamic Republic required the US “to change its path and act upon its undertakings.”

US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said this week in a letter that Iran was fulfilling its commitments but warned that the White House was reviewing the agreement.

In a later press conference, Tillerson insisted that the nuclear deal was a failure as it only delayed and does not avert Iran’s goal of becoming a nuclear state.

In addition, US President Donald Trump affirmed on Thursday that Iran “is not living up to the spirit” of the nuclear agreement, which he described as terrible and badly negotiated.

Meanwhile, at the United Nations, US ambassador Nikki Haley tried unsuccessfully to place Iran at the center of the Security Council’s Middle East agenda, accusing the Islamic Republic of being the main culprit in regional conflicts.
