EU3 Has 60 Days to Salvage Int’l Nuclear Deal

The three European signatories to the Iran nuclear agreement have 60 days to provide "guarantees" to protect Iran's interests after the United States unilaterally withdrew from the 2015 accord, a lawmaker said, quoting a senior Foreign Ministry official.  
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has requested that a meeting of the Joint Commission—which oversees the implementation of the international agreement — be held without the participation of US representatives and a deadline of "45 days to two months" has been set for the Europeans, ISNA reported on Sunday. 
The news agency attributed the remarks to deputy foreign minister for political affairs, Abbas Araqchi as reported by Hossein Naqavi-Hosseini, spokesperson for Majlis National Security and Foreign Policy Commission. 
"During this period, the EU3 (France, UK and Germany) will either be able or unable to give the necessary guarantees to safeguard Iran's interests and compensate the damages caused by the US exit," Naqavi-Hosseini said after a parliamentary meeting with Araqchi. 
If they fail to provide clear assurances, senior officials will make the necessary decisions, the lawmaker added, saying that Europe is now facing a "litmus test".
