Rouhani: Iran Will Quit JCPOA If It Does Not Benefit From It
Local Editor

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced that the Islamic Republic will quit the multilateral nuclear agreement Tehran signed with major world powers in 2015 if it does not benefit from the deal after the US pullout.

Rouhani made the remarks during a Tuesday phone call with his French counterpart, Emmanuel Macron, a month after the United States' unilateral move to withdraw from the nuclear agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA].

"If Iran cannot enjoy the agreement's benefits, it will be practically impossible to stay in it," Rouhani said.

He further commended the statements of the European countries, including France, to salvage the JCPOA.

However, he stressed that such declarations must be accompanied by practical and tangible measures and solutions to help Iran benefit from the agreement.

"We should not allow that this very great diplomatic achievement be destroyed by the others' unilateral measures and acts of violation," he said.

Rouhani expressed hope that efforts by the five remaining signatories to the JCPOA and Iran as well as the European Union would be successful and fruitful.

Earlier in the beginning of May, US President Donald Trump announced that Washington was walking away from the nuclear agreement, which was reached between Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China - plus Germany.

Trump also said he would reinstate US nuclear sanctions on Iran and impose "the highest level" of economic bans on the Islamic Republic.

Under the JCPOA, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.

Since Trump pulled Washington out of the historic nuclear deal, European countries have been scrambling to ensure that Iran gets enough economic benefits to persuade it to stay in the deal. The remaining parties have vowed to stay in the accord.
