Washington Violating Nuclear Deal

Washington Violating Nuclear Deal Washington Violating Nuclear Deal

Iran's top diplomat said on Sunday US President Donald Trump is violating the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers. "The US has failed to implement its part of the bargain," Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told CNN. He pointed to Trump's recent meetings in Germany with world leaders as evidence of the US violating the two-year-old deal. "Trump used his presence in Hamburg during the G20 meeting to dissuade leaders from other countries to engage in business with Iran. That is violation of not the spirit but of the letter of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, of the nuclear deal," Zarif said. "I believe the United States needs to bring itself into compliance with its party of the obligation under the deal." Zarif said Iran has held up its end of the deal as verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency. "The IAEA has verified, I believe, seven times now since the implementation date that Iran has implemented the deal faithfully, fully and completely," Zarif said. "Unfortunately, we cannot make the same statement about the US."
