Iran's Ambassador to Portugal Morteza Damanpak Jami said on Thursday that Iran has adopted a policy of maximum resistance in the face of the US policy of maximum pressure and it will never kneel in front of the US.

Iran PressEurope: In an interview with Lusa News Agency, Damanpak Jami added that Iran's nuclear deal 2015, know as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is enforceable even in the absence of the US, as the other parties have not withdrawn from it.

However, if the US returns to the deal, Iran will also be ready to work together to implement it, he said.

Noting that JCPOA is a symbol of victory of negotiations, the envoy assured that Iran has never closed doors of diplomacy, and Rouhani's administration believes in constructive interaction with the world.

The issue is the main pillar of Iran's foreign policy and Iran believes that positive interaction with the international community is needed and JCPOA proved the claim, Damanpak Jami said.

Recalling that three European states have not left the deal officially, he said that they should not surrender to US orders and maintain their independence.

Under current circumstances, there is no room for talks with the Trump administration which has closed doors of diplomacy to Iran and pushes its policy of maximum pressure, he said.

The ambassador further noted that Iran expects the IAEA to remain impartial and avoid politicking.
