US’ double-standard game with JCPOA not justifiable by any criterion

ISNA – Iran’s ambassador to France Bahram Qassemi stressed that the US’ roguish and double-standard game with the JCPOA is not justifiable by any logic and criterion.

Referring to US’ attempts for using the 2015 nuclear deal and UN Security Council Resolution 2231 to extend Iran’ arms embargo, Qassemi wrote on his official Twitter account, “By withdrawing from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the United States both violated its JCPOA obligations and the UN Security Council Resolution 2231 and moved toward undermining the UN and even other partners to the Iran nuclear deal. It is not acceptable for a country to both breach its commitments and seek fabricated and selective interests in a deal by withdrawing from it”.

“Playing a roguish and double-standard game with the JCPOA using UN resolutions as a tool to ratchet up the pressure and restrictions and violate the natural rights of Iran and any other independent country is not justifiable by any logic and criterion. Even the international community is against this interpretation and logic which defies globally recognized norms,” he added.
