Iran Giving Diplomacy Second Chance: FM Zarif

Лавров рассказал о разочаровании Трампом

China backs Iran nuclear deal as United States walks away, but could it be a costly decision? "We are certain that today China is by our side". The next stage of China is to conduct appropriate negotiations with all countries of the SVPD, and China will make every effort to contract is preserved much longer. The Iranian foreign Minister said that the conservation AGREEMENT and performance of all agreements is a major responsibility of all countries.

Mr. Zarif's diplomatic tour took him to Beijing at the weekend and will see him visit Brussels later in the week, as the worldwide backers of the 2015 accord scrabble to save it.

While announcing his decision, Trump called the agreement "defective at its core", claiming that after the lifting of the sanctions Tehran "used its new funds to build nuclear-capable missiles, support terrorism and cause havoc throughout the Middle East and beyond".

During talks with the Chinese foreign minister, Zarif pointed to good relations between Tehran and Beijing after the JCPOA implementation started in 2016, saying, "We are confident that China will stand by Iran".

The move suggests that Beijing, unlike the European Union, is determined to maintain normal ties and trade with Iran, despite the U.S. urging foreign companies to wind down their operations in the region.

China was closely involved in negotiating the agreement as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and has always been one of Iran's closest economic partners, buying about a third of its oil shipments.

Iran has warned it could resume uranium enrichment "without limit" in response to Trump's decision.

The plan removed sanctions on Iran in return for Tehran giving up its military nuclear programme.

"If the remaining five countries continue to abide by the agreement, Iran will remain in the deal despite the will of America", Rouhani said in remarks carried by state television.

It comes after Iranian President Hassan Rohani confirmed Tehran would remain in the nuclear accord provided that the nation's interests were protected.

France and other Western allies have been critical of Washington's plan to reimpose sanctions on any companies doing business with Iran.

The Prime Minister had already issued a joint statement with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel to express their "regret and concern".

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi said Germany, France and the United Kingdom had 60 days to provide Iran *with enough guarantees to ensure it could* stay in the deal, according to IRNA.
