A lawmaker denounced the recent European proposal for new sanctions against Iran to satisfy US President Donald Trump, describing it as "ineffective" in saving the 2015 nuclear deal as it makes the accord less worthwhile for Tehran.
"Slapping fresh sanctions on Iran to persuade the United States to stay in the JCPOA has no benefit or advantage for us and will only inflict further damage on us. So that approach would be ineffective," Hossein Naqavi Hosseini said in a Saturday talk with ICANA.
Britain, France and Germany joined the US, Russia and China in negotiations with Iran that ultimately produced the nuclear accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
It placed temporary restrictions on Tehran's nuclear work in return for giving it relief from international sanctions.
