European Powers Failed to Maintain Iran Nuclear Deal: Zarif

ERBIL - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has argued that the European major powers have failed to maintain the 2015 Iran nuclear deal.

"E3 leaders — who rely on [the] signature of OFAC functionaries to carry out their obligations under JCPOA [the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action] — have done ZILCH to maintain JCPOA [the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action]," Zarif wrote on Twitter on Sunday.

His comments came one day after France, Germany, and the United Kingdom warned Iran against producing uranium metal, which they argued would contravene the 2015 nuclear deal.

"We strongly encourage Iran to end this activity, and return to full compliance with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action without delay, if it is serious about preserving this agreement," the three European countries said in a joint statement.
