US Demands for Nuclear Deal Survival “Unacceptable”

The “unacceptable” conditions set by the United States for staying in the nuclear deal carry no weight in Iran’s view, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif says, adding that no country can unilaterally set provisions for a multilateral agreement. “The Americans have been taking evasive actions and setting conditions to escape their responsibilities, [but] the international community is well aware that none of those conditions can even be taken into consideration,” he told reporters in Tehran on Saturday, Fars News Agency reported. The US administration has been pushing for changes to the 2015 nuclear pact, attempting to link it to other issues, including Iran’s ballistic missile program and regional policies. Iran says no modifications can be made to the deal and that its missile program is non-negotiable.  Zarif said the main obstacle to the full implementation of the agreement is the US actions, reiterating that the accord involves more than one party. US President Donald Trump told the Europeans on January 12 they must agree to fix the “terrible flaws” of the nuclear deal or he would reimpose the sanctions Washington lifted as part of that pact.
