Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said the 2015 nuclear deal with major powers, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, is not open to renegotiation, stressing that there is no better alternative to the deal.

“The JCPOA is not [re]negotiable. A better deal is pure fantasy,” Zarif tweeted on Thursday, adding that it was time for the US to “stop spinning and begin complying, just like Iran”, Press TV reported.

The remarks came at a time when Washington, which is a party to the agreement, seems to be laying out a case for abandoning JCPOA or intending to send everybody on a wild goose chase in search of illusionary flaws.

Zarif’s remarks also came after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi on Wednesday.

In the meeting, the two countries stressed that the nuclear accord was non-negotiable and that all sides to the agreement must honor their obligations.
