Iran’s exit from JCPOA detrimental to country: Official

IRNA – Iran’s Vice-President for Legal Affairs La’ya Joneidi said on Monday that violation of Iran nuclear deal, officially known as JCPOA, was harmful to Iran.

Addressing first meeting of International Conference on Global Economy late on Monday, she added that US sanctions against Iran are illegitimate and unfair.

“The impacts of US sanctions against Iran indicate that they are not fair, as prices of goods have become three-fold over the past eight months,” she noted.

According to Joneidi, by imposing sanctions against Iran, the US has not violated the deal but also international norms.

The US is dodging its commitments through the instruments it has made and under such a condition Iran should use all its soft power instruments, Joneidi said.
