Tehran (IP) - Vice-chairman of National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of Iran’s Parliament said the JCPOA was a bilateral agreement, stating that if the sanctions continue, the survival of it is not in Iran's interest.

Iran PressIran News: In an exclusive interview with Iran Press, Shahriar Heydari asked whether there was a will to lift sanctions against Iran.

He stated that with Donald Trump coming to power, the United States withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the sanctions against Iran were not only lifted but even increased.

He noted that the US withdrawal was a violation of the agreement, adding this approach would be welcomed if the Biden administration returns to the agreement with a new approach aimed at fulfilling US commitments.

The law of "Strategic Action to Lift Sanctions" has been approved by the Islamic Consultative Assembly, aiming at encouraging the parties to fulfill their obligations under the Iran nuclear deal, Heydari pointed.
