A deputy foreign minister reminded the US that it needs to take more steps to honor commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, as Iran has fully fulfilled its part of the nuclear deal.

In a meeting with Romania's Foreign Minister Lazar Comanescu in Bucharest on Sunday, Deputy Foreign Minister for American and European Affairs Majid Takht-Ravanchi emphasized that Tehran has met all its commitments under the nuclear pact with the six major powers (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), according to Tasnim News Agency.

He urged the parties to the deal to carry out their undertakings, stressing the need for Washington to take more serious steps to meet the commitments stipulated in the JCPOA.

Tehran and the six countries reached the nuclear agreement on July 14, 2015.

The accord took effect in January and was supposed to terminate the nuclear-related sanctions against Iran all at once, but its implementation has been hampered mainly due to US policies.

Takht-Ravanchi also called for efforts to boost political and economic cooperation between Iran and Romania.

Comanescu voiced Romania's interest in forging closer ties with Iran in all fields, saying Bucharest is ready to hold a joint economic commission meeting with Tehran.
