Iran expecting urgent steps from Europe to combat US sanctions
Baku, Azerbaijan, Oct. 18
By Elnur Baghishov - Trend:
Iran has so far fulfilled all commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Deputy Chairman of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization for international, law and parliamentary affairs Behrouz Kamalvandi said.
He made the remarks at a meeting with Director at the German Federal Foreign Office Antje Leendertse, according to the website of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI).
If Iran’s interests as part of the nuclear deal aren’t ensured, it will be meaningless to continue to fulfill obligations, Kamalvandi noted.
There are positive signs that Europe adheres to the nuclear deal, he added.
However, given the limited time and economic pressure, Iran expects Europe to take urgent steps to find solutions to combat the US unilateral sanctions, he said.
Leendertse also welcomed Iran’s commitment to the nuclear deal.
Considering that such cases are taking place for the first time in the history of international relations, Europe is seeking creation of methods to combat US sanctions, Leendertse said.
