Call for Continued EU Push to Uphold Nuclear Pact

A deputy foreign minister called on the European signatories to the nuclear deal to continue demanding full commitment from US President Donald Trump and cautioned them against a policy to appease the Iran hawk.
"European countries had better be seeking the US' continued adherence to its JCPOA obligations, as they have done so far, and persuade that country to effectively implement all aspects of the JCPOA with good intention and in a constructive atmosphere because there is no other way to preserve the action plan but full commitment from the US and other parties," Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi said, IRNA reported.
He was using the formal title of the 2015 nuclear accord, namely the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
Araqchi was talking to reporters on Friday before leaving Vienna, the venue for another meeting of the Joint Commission, a panel assigned to monitor the deal's implementation.
