Lavrov: US’ Anti-JCPOA Actions Wrong Message to NKorea
US measures against Iran's nuclear agreement send a destructive message to the Korean Peninsula crisis, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
'The US position on the Iranian nuclear deal does not help with North Korea,' Lavrov made comments on Tuesday speaking to Russia Today.
Lavrov added, 'By undermining the Iranian deal Washington is sending a signal to Pyongyang: whatever denuclearization deal you may strike with us may be scrapped by a future administration.'
Meanwhile, Lavrov had already warned that international agreements, including the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], better known as Iran Nuclear Deal, are in danger of being canceled.
For its part, Sputnik quoted Lavrov as saying that if the deal was canceled, it sends a bad message to those who are hopeful about the settlement of the Korean Peninsula crisis.
All the signatories of the Iran deal support it, except for the US President Donald Trump, who due to pressures from the Zionist regime and its lobby in the called it 'a bad agreement'. Trump did not confirm Iran's compliance with the deal, although it had been confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency 8 times.
