Russia Says Will Continue Efforts to Maintain Nuclear DealRussia Says Will Continue Efforts to Maintain Nuclear Deal

Moscow is aware that all participants in the Iran nuclear deal, except the US, are determined to maintain the agreement and will continue efforts to that end, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Wednesday.

“A campaign against Iran has been gaining momentum in the US as Washington has clearly opted for the policy of ultimatums and threats towards Iran,” she said. “It is not in line with the spirit of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) for Iran’s nuclear program and goes beyond normal relations between countries,” she added, TASS reported.

“As for the future of the JCPOA, it will be decided at the Joint Commission’s meeting in Vienna on May 25. The event will not involve the United States for the first time,” the spokeswoman pointed out. “We have never supported the policy of unilateral sanctions and will never do that as we believe them to be illegal. We are determined to advance our comprehensive cooperation with Iran,” Zakharova concluded.
