US must accept responsibility for violating JCPOA: Iran MP
Chairman of the Parliament’s Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy Alaeddin Boroujerdi says the United States must accept responsibility for lack of commitment to its obligations under last year’s nuclear agreement between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.
According to Press TV, on Monday after the meeting with Lebanese Foreign Minister Gebran Bassil he said: “We hold the US responsible for all violations [of the nuclear agreement]. The US must accept responsibility for reneging on its promises on the international level.”
He added that the US’ lack of commitment has been proven to Iran and all countries in the world more than ever.
The lawmaker stated that the Islamic Republic does not hold other European countries, which signed the nuclear agreement known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), with Iran, responsible for such failure to honor the P5+1’s commitments.
Leader of the Islamic Ummah and Oppressed People Imam Sayyed Ali Khamenei also said on Monday that Iran’s experience in striking a nuclear agreement with the P5+1 group of countries, including the United States, was a clear example of the enemies’ untrustworthiness.
“Today, even the diplomatic officials and those who were present in the [nuclear] negotiations reiterate the fact that the US is breaching its promises, and while speaking softly and sweetly [to Iran], is busy obstructing and damaging Iran’s economic relations with other countries,” Supreme Leader said.
