Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Marziyeh Afkham lashed out at the White House for misinterpreting the nuclear deal Tehran and the six major world powers struck in Geneva late in November, and warned that such moves will weaken the agreement.
“This (White House) statement is a unilateral interpretation of the recent unofficial agreements reached between experts from Iran and the Group 5+1 (the five permanent UN Security Council members plus Germany),” Afkham underlined on Friday.
On Thursday, the White House released a four-page summary of the deal in which the US claimed that Iran will stop producing fuel for the Arak reactor.
Afkham stressed, “This statement is in no way the criterion for assessment or judgment regarding the implementation of the Geneva agreement.”
On Sunday, Iran and the six world powers finalized an agreement on ways to implement the Geneva nuclear deal, which the two sides struck in the Swiss city of Geneva on November 24, 2013, from January 20.
On November 24, Iran and the world powers sealed a six-month Joint Plan of Action to lay the groundwork for the full resolution of the West’s decade-old dispute with Iran over its nuclear energy program. In exchange for Tehran’s confidence-building bid to limit certain aspects of its nuclear activities, the Sextet of world powers agreed to lift some of the existing sanctions against Tehran and continue talks with the country to settle all problems between the two sides.
