Opportunity to revive JCPOA not always there: Iran deputy FM

Irans Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Ali Bagheri Kani has said the United States dealt a devastating blow to the international rule of law by withdrawing from Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA) some five years ago, adding that the opportunity to revive the deal is not always there.

Bagheri, Iran's top nuclear negotiator, made the remarks on Tuesday on the anniversary of the United States withdrawal from theJoint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in May 2018.

A critical reminder: 5 years ago, the US rendered a fatal blow to 'rule of law at the international level' by unlawfully withdrawing from JCPOA. Ever since, the US has failed to reverse its wrongful act. Iran's legitimate remedial measures will continue,Bagheri Kani wrote on his Twitter account.

The senior Iranian nuclear negotiator also warned, The full implementation of JCPOA (with effective sanctions lifting at its core) could be resumed, should the reneging party (and EU/E3) demonstrate credible political will to that effect. No opportunity is forever!

Iran and the P5+1 group (the US, the UK, Britain, France, Russia, China plus Germany) signed the JCPOA in 2015. However, the US did not abide by its obligations under the deal by withdrawing from it and imposing sanctions on Iran. Washington even forced the European parties to the deal to stop keeping their side of the bargain as well.
