Iran calls for int'l meeting to consider U.S. sanctions extension: FM

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Saturday called for a joint meeting of Iran and the six world powers to discuss the recent U.S. extension of Iran Sanctions Act (ISA), which Iran says is a violation of the nuclear agreement , Press TV reported.

Iran and six world major countries, namely the United States, Britain, China, Russia, France and Germany, reached an agreement on the Iranian nuclear issue in July 2015 which puts Iran on the path of sanctions relief but more strict limits on its nuclear program.

  • The Islamic republic has remained committed to all of its obligations under the nuclear agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Zarif said in an official letter to the European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, on Saturday.

"Maintaining the JCPOA integrity and coherence as well as its sustainability requires that all parties to the JCPOA pay attention to (their commitments to) implement its provisions," Zarif said, adding that however, the United States kept reneging on its obligations under the nuclear agreement.

Zarif asked the EU foreign policy chief to make necessary preparations for the JCPOA joint commission meeting to consider the extension of ISA which, Iran calls, a violation of nuclear agreement.
