Iran Press/Iran news: The chair of the Iranian parliament's national security and foreign policy commission, Heshmatollah Falahatpisheh, met on Sunday with Britain's Minister for the Middle East within the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, Alistair Burt.

Commenting on JCPOA Falahatpisheh said: "The political will of European countries vis-a-vis JCPOA is praiseworthy, but so far the Europeans have shown little economic support for the JCPOA, and have taken no practical steps to bolster the nuclear deal (JCPOA )."

The senior Iranian MP also emphasized that  Iran expects Europe to take more practical steps in this regard.

Referring to the significance and importance of parliamentary  cooperation between Tehran and London, and the important role the two parliaments play in decision-making, Falahatpisheh went on to say that promoting   parliamentary ties between the two countries  will help raise  the level  of understanding  between Tehran and London, and will lead to more cooperation between the two countries.

Iran's top parliamentarian also stressed the fact that  Islamic Republic of Iran has never acted emotionally  and hurriedly after US withdrawal from The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action known as JCPOA ." but in turn, the country has did its best to pave the ground form holding talks in order to shed light on the  dimensions  of the cooperation  under new conditions.

Falahatpisheh went on to stress Europe's role in countering US sanctions against Iran, by supporting the sale of Iranian crude  oil, by facilitating financial and banking transactions with Iran, and by encouraging European companies and businesses to have an active presence in Iran. Falahatpisheh added: "This is the minimum we expect from the Europeans if the nuclear deal (JCPOA ) is to be preserved."
