A nuclear deal can still be saved, says Iranian foreign Minister

The nuclear deal can be saved, said on Monday the Iranian foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif.

"I believe that to rescue the agreement is possible if the Europeans begin to implement what they have agreed – they have obligations under the AGREEMENT, which they fulfilled," said Zarif during the discussion in the framework of the "Mediterranean dialogue".

He also added that Tehran "has not felt the effect" of the alleged transaction of the removal of restrictions against Iran: "All the European companies left Iran".

Iran and the six international negotiators in July 2015 reached agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom. Months of negotiations concluded with the adoption of a joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which is completely removed from Iran's previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN security Council, US and EU.

USA in 2018 unilaterally withdrew from the deal with Iran on its nuclear program and re-imposed sanctions against Tehran, including secondary, that is, in relation to other countries doing business with Iran.
