The Foreign Minister of the Islamic Republic of Iran in a telephone conversation with his British counterpart Dominique Robb stated that the United States should fully return to its obligations to JCPOA and stop using the economic war against Iran as leverage in the negotiations.

Iran PressEurope: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif also noted that in this telephone conversation, the two sides agreed on the need to resume full commitment to JCPOA.

He added that the US must return fully to its obligations and cease trying to use the unlawful economic war against Iran as negotiating leverage.

Zarif added that he had also discussed bilateral and consular issues with the British Foreign Secretary.

Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, unilaterally withdrew from the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal and announced the return of nuclear sanctions, in violation of Washington's commitments under the JCPOA.

Iran fully complied with its obligations under the nuclear deal within a year of the US's illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA and gave European countries, which promised to make up for the effects of the withdrawal, a chance to live up to their commitments.

One year after the European governments failed to deliver on their promises, Tehran announced that it would gradually reduce its obligations under Articles 26 and 36 of the agreement to strike a balance between its obligations and the received rights.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has also stated that it will not accept any new conditions or demands for the United States to return to the nuclear deal (JCPOA).
