Tehran, Iran, February 8
By Mehdi Sepahvand - Trend:
The CJPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) is not directed against any country, said Iranian Foreign Ministry's spokesman Hossein Jaberi Ansari Feb. 8.
Pre-JCPOA era felt better for some regional powers and now they think they are threatened by the new situation, Ansari said at the press conference, Trend agency's correspondent in Tehran reported.
Iran and the P5+1 group (the US, the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany) implemented the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA aka nuclear deal) on Jan. 16, which eliminated sanctions on the country, including the restrictions over banking sector, releasing blocked assets abroad, etc.
"Iran asks these powers to stop, because their policy will fail," Ansari said. "We are looking for good relations with all the regional countries."
Further speaking, Ansari touched upon the regional events, saying that the crisis in the region is the outcome of regional powers' interference and their efforts to impose their own will.
Ansari also said that today and tomorrow Iran and the EU will be holding talks. According to the spokesman, Iran's FM Mohammad Javad Zarif will be visiting Brussels within the framework of the Iran-EU talks.
