Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh

Tehran (IP) - Iran's Foreign Ministry spokesman said that Britain, Germany, and France are expected to act in full compliance with their commitments under JCPOA and the Joint Commission's enactments, rather than as a political projection.

Iran PressIran news: Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh on Friday in response to a statement by the three European countries Britain, Germany, and France regarding the Islamic Republic of Iran's cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), condemned their irresponsible stance.  

He highlighted that the peaceful activities of the Iranian nuclear program are completely legal within the framework of international law and are pursued in line with the inherent inalienable rights of countries.

Referring to the commitments of the Europeans in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), he stated that with the withdrawal of the United States from JCPOA, the re-imposition of sanctions, and the continuation of Europe's violation of its commitments to Iran's economic benefits from the lifting of sanctions stated in JCPOA, the Islamic Republic of Iran has taken nuclear steps in accordance with Paragraph 26 and 36 of the deal.

Despite failing to deliver on their promises to make up for the effects of the US withdrawal from JCPOA, Germany, Britain, and France, issued a statement on Wednesday claiming that Iran had committed a serious breach of the nuclear deal, despite their goodwill.

On May 8, 2018, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the Iran Nuclear Deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in violation of Washington's international commitments, declaring the return of nuclear sanctions on Iran.

Trump's move has been widely condemned in domestic and international arenas.
