Speaker: Iran ready for all scenarios regarding JCPOA
Tehran, Oct. 12, 2017(IRNA) – Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani said on Thursday that Iran is ready for all scenarios concerning the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the Iranian officials are not in a hurry as they have examined ways out of any problem.
Speaking to reporters before leaving Tehran for St. Petersburg, Russia, to attend the 137th Inter-Parliamentary Union (IPU) he said I do not think that the world has taken allegations made by US President Donald Trump seriously and it seems our media inside the country have paid more attention to this point.
As far as I know the stances adopted by the European countries, Russia and China in reserving the JCPOA is like the stances adopted by Tehran and such hasty measures by the US will create problems for them as well as other countries, Larijani said.
All G5+1 members did not back the US stances in dealing with Iran nuclear program and they believe that it (JCPOA) was an international deal won approval of the UNSC and in fact the JCPOA is part of UN resolution out of reach of countries, he said.
Iranian people should not be concern as the world countries supporting them and we also seize the opportunity to appreciate Russia on its stances, Larijani said.
All European countries believe in maintaining the JCPOA and in fact there is an international harmony in backing Iran's stances and believe that the US' one-sided policies will backfire, he said.
It is crystal clear that Iran never loses and the country's progress on nuclear issues is very promising and we are to focus on expansion of economic cooperation with other countries, he said.
