Baku, Azerbaijan, Apr. 19
By Khalid Kazimov - Trend:
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has urged the US to fulfill its commitments regarding the implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA/ nuclear deal).
"We should prevent the previous US regulations from posing restrictions against establishing banking and financial ties between institutions in Europe and Asia with Iran," IRIB news agency quoted Zarif as saying.
Saying that over the past several years the Americans imposed restrictions on the trade ties with Iran, Zarif added that those restrictions have been removed following the implementation of the JCPOA.
He further added that now it is necessary to make the international institutions sure that establishing ties with Iran will not harm them.
Saying that Iran is not after establishing trade ties with the US, he underlined that the Islamic Republic, however, is not barred from establishing "healthy" economic ties with the US.
Speaking about topics to be discussed during his upcoming meeting with US Secretary of State John Kerry, Zarif said it is necessary to have a meeting with Kerry for following the issue of the implementation of the JCPOA.
Zarif left Tehran for New York on April 18 to participate in the UN Climate Summit.
He is scheduled to have a meeting with his American counterpart John Kerry to discuss Iran's nuclear deal and also the latest regional developments.
