New York (IP) - The Iranian President said in a meeting with his Swiss counterpart said that Iran has not yet seen any practical measure by the US showing compensation for its withdrawal from the JCPOA.

Iran PressAmerica: The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was an international agreement signed between Iran and the P5+1 countries (US, UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, EU) signed in 2015, but the US scrapped it in 2018.

In the meeting with the Swiss President on the sidelines of the United Nations General Assembly, Iran's President Raisi pointed out that the current American government claims to oppose the previous government's decisions and return to the agreement, but nothing has been observed yet:

"We have not yet seen practical and serious behavior that is a sign of compensating for past behavior and lifting oppressive sanctions."



The President described the problem of the nuclear issue as the Americans not making a decision and added: "It was the United States that withdrew from the JCPOA, not Iran, and despite Iran fulfilling its commitments, the Western parties refused to fulfil their commitments."

Emphasizing that Iran has not left the negotiation table and is ready for a good and fair agreement, Raisi said: "Considering the history of the United States, the demand of the Islamic Republic to receive a guarantee of the stability of the agreement is a completely reasonable demand."

He noted: "Despite 40 years of pressure and sanctions, Iran has not only not stopped but has progressed, so the sanctions tactic has lost its effectiveness".

President Raisi then pointed to the relations between Iran and Swiss and said Raisi called the relations friendly and good: "Increasing commercial and economic cooperation and especially facilitating monetary and banking relations between the two countries is necessary."
