Iran not to renegotiate JCPOA: Top MP

July 23, The Iran Project – A senior Iranian lawmaker says Iran will never renegotiate the nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, stressing that reopening these negotiations is another US violation of the 2015 nuclear agreement.

Speaking to a reporter on Sunday, Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi reiterated that five other parties to the JCPOA – Russia, Britain, France, China and Germany – will reject any attempts to renegotiate that.

Boroujerdi called the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s recent comments over the renegotiation of the JCPOA as logical, saying when a deal is signed by all negotiating parties and then the UN Security Council endorses it, its renegotiation is meaningless.

Five other countries – Russia, Britain, France, China and Germany – that signed the nuclear deal have already warned against unilateral breaches by the US, he said, adding America is isolated in this case.

In an interview with the New Yorker published on Wednesday, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said “It would be extremely dangerous to even contemplate reopening these negotiations, because now we all go into any possible negotiations with even higher expectations,” “It was complicated enough to reach this deal already, and it would be impossible to reach another deal.”
