Iran has called on the remaining parties to the 2015 nuclear deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, to abide by their obligations to preserve it after the United States walked away from the key international agreement.  
“Other parties to the JCPOA, particularly the three European countries, are obliged to take the measures necessary to protect the deal, unconditionally fulfill their commitments—which they were unable to fully implement due to the troubles created by Trump when the US was part of the JCPOA, albeit on paper—and put their words into action,” President Hassan Rouhani’s Cabinet said in a statement, IRNA reported on Thursday.
