Trump’s Hostile JCPOA Stance “Irresponsible”

Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov described US President Donald Trump’s remarks against the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers as “irresponsible”, emphasizing that Iran and Russia cannot be indifferent to the issue. “Continuation of talks between Iran and Russia [over the deal] is very crucial,” Ryabkov said in a meeting with Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi in Moscow on Thursday, Tasnim News Agency reported. Referring to recent remarks by Trump against the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the Russian deputy minister said, “Unfortunately, we are witnessing the US irresponsible behavior that can directly impact [the implementation] process. Tehran and Moscow cannot sit back and remain indifferent.” Araqchi said the US government’s “irresponsible approaches” have created a new condition for JCPOA. He said the accord is not a bilateral agreement between Iran and the US, stressing that the deal is an international accord endorsed by the United Nations. In a major confrontational speech against Iran on Oct. 13, Trump refused to certify Iran’s compliance with the terms of the deal, creating uncertainty over the fate of the historic accord.
