Responsibility for Iran’s benefits from JCPOA lies with EU: Araqchi

IRNA – The deputy foreign minister for political affairs reiterated Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA, saying that direct responsibility for Iranian nation’s benefits from the deal lies with the Europe.

In a meeting with President of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Senate Vito Rosario Petrocelli of Italy, he added, “In exchange for abiding by the commitments under the deal, the Iranian nation expects to benefit from the deal and the EU is directly responsible for the issue, following US exit from the accord.”

Iran has proved its feeling of responsibility through living up to its side in the deal, and the EU is expected not to allow the US to use financial and monetary issues as a weapon to impose its unilateralism against the international community, Araqchi said.

Petrocelli, for his part, reaffirmed his country’s support for the JCPOA, saying, “Senate’s resolve to preserve the deal is a main achievement in line with global stability.”

Maintaining excellent trade ties between Iran and Italy is a basic priority for Italy, he said.

He underlined Senate’s readiness for promoting cooperation between the two countries.
