Onus on US to Meet JCPOA Commitments

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif highlighted Washington’s acknowledgement of Iran’s adherence to its commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, saying it is the US duty to carry out its undertakings.
“No amount of reported ‘imposed’ negative spin can hide the fact that US admitted Iran’s adherence to JCPOA, [which places the] onus on US to live up to its part,” Zarif said in a post on his official Twitter account on Wednesday, Tasnim New Agency reported.
While all parties to the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, and the International Atomic Energy Agency have confirmed time and again that Iran has upheld its part of the deal, the United States has failed to fully abide by its obligations.
The accord was supposed to terminate all nuclear-related sanctions against Iran all at once, but its implementation has been hampered by US hostile policies.
US President Donald Trump has raised the possibility that Washington may withdraw from the agreement.
He has also claimed that “I believe they [Iranians] have broken the spirit of the agreement.”
Experts believe the US is looking for pretexts to walk out of the deal to raise the ante against Iran in order to appease Israel and Saudi Arabia. However, analysts believe, this would only isolate Trump as the Europeans, China and Russia, who are signatories to the deal with Iran, have vowed to stand by the nuclear deal.
