Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that the country will be committed to JCPOA, as long as the European side comply with it.

Iran Press/ Iran news: Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said that Islamic Republic will comply with the terms of the 2015 nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as long as European signatories to the deal honour their commitments.

In a post published on his official Twitter page late on Tuesday, Zarif wrote that Tehran is committed to the full implementation of the landmark nuclear agreement, reached between Iran and the 5+1 Group – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China plus Germany – in July 2015 as long as the European parties to the agreement meet their economic commitments, Press TV reported.

He further noted that Iran will simply mirror the level of commitment shown by the European side.

The twitter massage posted after earlier in the day, the diplomatic chiefs of the European Union, France, Germany and Britain said they were extremely concerned, and urged Iran to reverse its decision to pass its stockpile of enriched uranium above 300 kilograms limit.

"We urge Iran to reverse this step and to refrain from further measures that undermine the nuclear deal," said the joint statement signed by EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini, French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas and Britain's Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt.
