US Seeking to Compel Iran to Quit JCPOA

US Seeking to Compel Iran to Quit JCPOA

A lawmaker said the US is trying to create an untenable atmosphere to force Iran to walk out of the landmark 2015 nuclear accord. Morteza Saffari, a member of Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission, said, “Blocking the interests that Iran could get from JCPOA, fueling a propaganda campaign and finally exerting pressure on Iran to leave the accord are the main goals behind the new US sanctions,” ICANA reported on Sunday. JCPOA stands for the official name of the agreement, Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. On Oct. 31, the US Department of Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control imposed sanctions on individuals and companies linked to Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps after the US House of Representatives had passed new sanctions in response to Iran’s ballistic missile program on Oct. 25. The lawmaker said Iran’s position is to preserve the deal, adding that Tehran would wait and see other countries’ reactions to the US unilateral sanctions and then take action.
Saffari also rejected the idea of renegotiating the deal, saying there will be “no amendments to the deal”.
