Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said that the country sees no grounds to trigger the dispute mechanism in Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

Iran PressEurope: "The activation of this mechanism may make it impossible to return to the implementation of the agreement," TASS quoted the ministry as saying.

The UK, France, and Germany have officially launched the dispute mechanism in the Iran nuclear agreement 2015, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) but highlighted that they won't impose US President Donald Trump's 'maximum pressure' sanctions on Tehran.

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a follow-up tweet called on the three European powers -France, Germany, and the UK- to stop bowing to the US' diktat and rather 'muster the courage' to fulfill their obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The spokesman for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has said that the European Troika statement on activation of the process for resolving disputes in the 2015 nuclear agreement shows the weakness of the European side.
