Russian FM: Moscow Regrets US Decision to Withdraw From Iran Nuclear Deal

Russian FM
The Russian Foreign Ministry expressed on Tuesday its regret over the US decision to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) known as the Iranian nuclear deal.

Earlier in the day, US President Donald Trump announced the United States will no longer remain part of the JCPOA and promised to re-impose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran's development of its nuclear program.

"We are deeply disappointed with US President Donald Trump's decision to unilaterally withdraw from implementation of obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on the Iranian nuclear program and to re-impose national US sanctions against Iran," the ministry said in a statement.

The Russian Foreign Ministry pointed out that the US decision sharply violated international law.

"There are and there may be no grounds for undermining the JCPOA. The plan fully proved its efficiency. It effectively copes with all the goals set for it. Iran strictly sticks to its commitments, which is regularly confirmed by the IAEA [International Atomic Energy Agency]. We are fully supporting and welcoming that," the statement said.

The Russian Foreign Ministry added that Moscow was open for further cooperation with other JCPOA parties and for continuation of dialogue and cooperation with Tehran.
