Iran Calls for US Study on Washington's Record in Implementing JCPOA

A view of Bushehr nuclear power plant in southern Iran

The administration has until Monday to decide whether it will recertify Iran's adherence to the agreement, which lifts financial sanctions against the country as long as it proves it won't develop or acquire nuclear weapons. For now, the State Department's official line is that it's not making any major shifts until the completion of an ongoing overall review of U.S. -Iran policy, so changes could be coming. But State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said that until the Iran review is completed, the us will continue upholding its side of the agreement: relief from nuclear sanctions.

Critics of the deal have pointed to minor infractions as justification for the U.S.to say Iran is not complying.

Elaborating his view on US-Russian brokered ceasefire for southwest Syria, he noted that Iran supports comprehensive truce in the war-torn region.

As a candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Trump was an outspoken critic of the deal but offered conflicting opinions on whether he would try to scrap it, modify it or keep it in place with more strenuous enforcement.




"The Treasury Department has final approval over these kinds of deals with Iran, and some members of the Trump administration hope that Secretary Steve Mnuchin will use this authority to scuttle those agreements".

According to Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi, the top Iranian diplomat is also scheduled to sit down with scholars and officials from different countries on the sidelines of the conference. Other powers that brokered the nuclear deal along with the USA have said there's no appetite for renegotiating it.

In July 2015, Iran and six world powers, Britain, China, France, Germany, Russia and the United States, reached an agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue, which put it on the path of sanctions relief but with more strict limits on its nuclear program.

While lifting nuclear-linked sanctions, the United States maintains sanctions related to Iran's ballistic missile program and human rights record. In return, Tehran won relief from punishing global economic sanctions.
