Araghchi: JCPOA commitments reciprocal

An Iranian deputy foreign minister has said that Iran will honor its JCPOA commitments if the West takes a reciprocal measure and fulfills its commitments.

Deputy Foreign Minister said that Iran’s fulfillment of its commitments vis-à-vis the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) depends on the reciprocal measure by Western countries.

Abbas Araghchi further said that Iran will fulfill its commitments under JCPOA only if the six world powers fulfill their commitments.

“The board of governors and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) should choose between the possible military dimensions (PMD) case and JCPOA,” Araghchi said.

If IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano or the board of governors prepares their report in a way that they do not fulfill their commitments, the Islamic Republic of Iran will also stop JCPOA, he added.
