Iran's MP insists on immediate action regarding EU’s financial mechanism
Head of Parliament’s Security Committee said that Iran needs to convince Europe to make their promised financial mechanism for trade with Iran operational as soon as possible.
Iran Press/Iran News: Speaking to Mehr News correspondent on Thursday, head of Parliament’s Security Committee Valiollah Nanvakenari, said while Iran cannot put its' 100% trust in Europe regarding their promises for facilitating trade with Iran in the face of US sanctions, the process of talks with the EU is still promising.
“We hope that EU is committed to bringing their words into action and comply with their agreements with Iran regarding the implementation of a financial mechanism,” head of Parliament’s Security Committee added.
The parliamentary official warned that today more than ever, the US and Israeli regime are seeking to dissuade European countries from doing business with Iran, adding: “of course, Europe is insisting on the preservation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and commitment to the international agreement.”
Nanvakenari went on to stress that Iran needs to persuade EU to make their promised financial mechanism operational as soon as possible, given the current situation.
head of Parliament’s Security Committee said it is up to EU to announce the time for when the mechanism would come into effect, although the Iranian foreign ministry could make more effort to make that happen as soon as possible.
US President Donald Trump withdrew Washington from the nuclear agreement in May and reintroduced sanctions on Iran in August.
Despite Trump's hostile policy towards the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the head of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker said on October 6, that the EU should remain strong on its' commitment to the historic Iran nuclear deal.
