Nuclear Deal’s Fate Hinges on EUNuclear Deal’s Fate Hinges on EU

A senior government official said the survival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal rests on the European Union that has promised to guarantee Iran’s interests and offer practical solutions.

In an address to the European Parliament on Wednesday, Majid Takht-Ravanchi, deputy for political affairs at the Presidential Office, outlined Iran’s policies on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the nuclear agreement from which the US withdrew unilaterally in May.

Describing JCPOA as a major international achievement, Takht-Ravanchi called on all parties to the deal to honor their commitments, saying the coming days would be of significance as the EU should offer practical initiatives and solutions to ensure Iran’s interests, Tasnim News Agency reported.

Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi has said Europeans’ proposed mechanisms for neutralizing the US oil and banking sanctions against Iran must be fully or partly in place until Nov. 4, when a new round of US sanctions is set to officially take effect.
