US Claims Int’l Financial Access Not Part of JCPOA

The White House claimed on Friday that the nuclear deal between Iran and major powers, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, does not include giving Tehran access to the global financial system. The comment from a White House spokesman at a regular news briefing followed a request by Iran’s Central Bank Governor Valiollah Seif earlier in the day for the United States and European Union to help Iran access the global financial system, according to Reuters. “We want [the parties to] this agreement, especially the US, to take the required measures to remove the obstacles [in the way of Iran carrying out international financial transactions],” Seif said at an event on the sidelines of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank spring meetings in Washington. US House Speaker Paul Ryan had also said on Thursday he opposed any effort to give Iran access to the US dollar, citing concerns about what Tehran would do with any financial access gained in the wake of the nuclear pact.
