Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei last month urged European signatories to the nuclear deal with Iran, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), to provide Tehran with necessary guarantees about the continued implementation of the deal.

Also Iranian President Hassan Rouhani recently stated that JCPOA is a very important agreement for Iran, EU and the world, adding: "What United States did was against the law, UNSC resolutions and multilateral obligations, and without a doubt, this will be to the US and others' detriment".

US President Donald Trump announced on May 8 that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement and that he planned to reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

Since the US president pulled Washington out of the nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal. The remaining parties have vowed to stay in the accord.
