Iran in complete compliance of JCPOA: Russian Deputy FM

Russia has stressed that it has no doubt that Iran is in complete compliance to all aspects of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“We have no doubts, Iran fulfills all terms of the agreements,” said Russia’s Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov during an international non-proliferation conference in Moscow on Saturday, Press TV reported.

“Almost two years of the Joint Comprehensive Plan have demonstrated the agreement works effectively and copes fully with the outlined tasks. There is no alternative to the plan of action. We do not see reasons or opportunities to review or change it,” he added.

He added that the JCPOA contains a fragile balance of interests “regarding fundamental issues of its participants’ security.”

“Any shift of this balance will cause unavoidable collapse of the entire mechanism, and it would be impossible to assemble it in some new form… It is unrealistic to adjust the agreement, as all the issues, which required settlement, were solved this or that way,” he noted.

Earlier in the day,  Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned against breaking up the Iran nuclear agreement with world powers, saying it is “vital for strategic stability.”

Iran has vehemently rejected the possibility of renegotiation, warning that any hostile action against the accord will jeopardize regional and global peace and security.

Meanwhile, Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi criticized the United States for preventing Iran from benefiting from the 2015 nuclear deal, warning that such a move “will have its consequences.”
