Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi has dismissed rumours that the ministry is getting ready to pull out of the 2015 nuclear deal, saying such rumours are designed to negatively impact the Iranian economy.

“These rumours are certainly false, baseless and purposeful,” Qassemi said in a statement on Wednesday.

“They are created by certain domestic and foreign circles with destructive intentions and are aimed at making people worried, creating baseless tensions and negatively impacting the economy and people’s livelihood,” he went on to say.

The spokesman was referring to reports that quoted Monday statements by Deputy Foreign Minister Seyyed Abbas Araqchi as a signal that Iran would soon withdraw from the accord.

Araqchi said the EU has failed to create the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV), the mechanism aimed at facilitating trade with Iran at a time when the US has reinstated anti-Iran sanctions suspended under the nuclear accord.

“We are faced with a situation in which Europe has not been able or unwilling to establish a mechanism to meet Iran’s demands,” Araqchi noted.

Araqchi warned Iran cannot keep fulfilling its JCPOA commitments under such circumstances.
