Kremlin underlines importance of Iran reaction to US plan on nuclear deal

IRNA/Sputnik – The Iran nuclear deal continues to be implemented, what is important is how Tehran will react to Washington’s demands, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday.

“What is important is how Tehran assesses these 12 points. You know that the Kremlin, Tehran and involved European countries have reaffirmed their commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and reiterated their intention to continue to adhere to these commitments,’ Peskov told reporters, when asked to comment on the issue.

On Monday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo gave a keynote speech on the US policy on Iran, voicing 12 demands to Tehran following Washington’s unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as the Iran nuclear agreement.

Russia, Germany and France have a joint understanding of the need to work jointly to minimize the negative consequences of the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear deal, Peskov said.

‘There is an understanding of the necessity of joint work in order to minimize the consequences which Washington’s exit from the nuclear deal with Iran caused,’ Peskov told reporters.
