Iran Will Quit Nuclear Deal If It Does Not Benefit from It: President Rouhani

  • Iran Will Quit Nuclear Deal If It Does Not Benefit from It: President Rouhani
    by http://www.presstv.com/
    Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the Islamic Republic will quit the multilateral nuclear agreement Tehran signed with major world powers in 2015 if it does not benefit from the deal after the US pullout.

    Rouhani made the remarks during a Tuesday phone call with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, a month after the United States’ unilateral move to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    “If Iran cannot enjoy the agreement’s benefits, it will be practically impossible to stay in it,” Rouhani said.

    The Iranian president commended the statements of the European countries, including France, to salvage the JCPOA. However, he emphasized that such declarations must be accompanied by practical and tangible measures and solutions to help Iran benefit from the agreement.

    “We should not allow that this very great diplomatic achievement be destroyed by the others’ unilateral measures and acts of violation,” he said.

    Rouhani expressed hope that efforts by the five remaining signatories to the JCPOA and Iran as well as the European Union would be successful and fruitful.US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany.
