Iranian President has announced that Iran has not and will not leave the nuclear negotiating table, and sincerely wants the nuclear deal to succeed, but the JCPOA needs major surgery to survive.

Iran Press/Iran news: Speaking in a cabinet session on Wednesday, Hassan Rouhani described the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) beneficial to the region and the world and detrimental to the enemies of Iran, stressing, “American hardliners, Zionism and regional reactionaries have been -and are- anti-JCPOA and anti-Iran.”

President Rouhani said: "JCPOA is a win-win agreement and we want to keep it that way. We will never allow this agreement to be transformed into a win-lose agreement. Either we all win or we all lose from this agreement," Iran Press reported.

Indicating that Tehran has lost its patience with Europe’s efforts to create a new viable financial mechanism that would allow European firms to trade with Iran, in his live TV address president Rouhani said: "Sections 26 and 36 of the JCPOA, the deal signed in 2015, allow Iran to take steps if one party withdraws from the agreement."

Throughout his speech president Rouhani was at pains to explain that the road to diplomacy is open, and Iran’s step-by-step approach is a new opportunity for diplomacy and correcting the wrong path of unilateralism. 

Iran has issued a stern warning to the European signatories of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA) giving them a 60-day period to fulfil their obligations, promises and commitments under the JCPOA, and warning them that Iran's patience has reached its limit, and Tehran now expects to see the European signatories to the agreement implement their obligations. The warning was issued on the first anniversary of US abrogation of the multilateral nuclear agreement, JCPOA. 101/201
