Tehran to Reject Any Side Deal to JCPOA

"Our stance is clear and unwavering. The JCPOA can never be reopened, renegotiated or re-discussed. In our view, there can exist no supplemental agreement, amendment or anything to that effect under any different wording," Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi told IRNA. 
He was using an abbreviation that stands for the formal title of the 2015 nuclear accord between Iran and the six major powers, namely the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
Araqchi's reassertion of the Islamic Republic's stance came hours ahead of another meeting of the JCPOA Joint Commission on Friday in Vienna to address Iran's grievances about the US uncooperative approach to the deal's implementation.
