Iran called on the EU, Russia and China to save nuclear deal

The European Union, Russia and China should make efforts to preserve the Iranian nuclear deal, said the official representative of the foreign Ministry of Iran Bahram qasemi. “The Europeans and other signatories to the agreement (China and Russia.— “B”) tried to salvage the deal, but the process was slow. It needs to be accelerated”, — quoted Mr. qasemi Reuters.

Recall, July 14, 2015 Iran, USA, France, UK, China, Russia and Germany signed a Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which provides for the freezing of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief. May 8, 2018 US President Donald trump has announced the release of the deal, saying that it was “based on lies”.

In early August, Donald trump said he was willing, without preconditions, to engage in direct negotiations with Iran. Tehran has rejected this initiative, demanding that first, the United States reaffirmed their commitment to the AGREEMENT.
