Russia, Iran vow to adhere to nuclear deal

Russia, Iran vow to adhere to nuclear deal

Earlier on Thursday Russia's deputy foreign minister Mikhail Bogdanov called for "restraint on all sides" and said Moscow was "concerned" at the escalation.

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Russia Sergey Lavrov officially confirmed that Russia will remain a member of the "nuclear agreement" with Iran. During the consultations in Tehran, the issue of maintaining the agreement on the Iranian nuclear program was discussed, as well as overcoming the consequences of USA economic sanctions on Tehran.

The JCPOA came out of years of negotiations between Iran on one side and the P5+1 group of countries - the US, UK, France, Russia and China plus Germany - on the other, in July 2015.

"We are extremely concerned that the United States is once again acting contrary to the opinion of the majority of states and exclusively in its own narrow-minded and opportunistic interests, in flagrant violation of worldwide law", said the Foreign Ministry statement. They call the JCPOA a pillar of regional and worldwide peace and stability, and reiterate the multilateral pact can not be simply terminated by a single party.

Heiko Maas said Wednesday that "the agreement is working".

Lavrov said Russian Federation values Iran's "balanced" position and will hold consultations on the future of the pact with the other signatories. Tehran had earlier warned that it has prepared several options for responding to U.S. withdrawal.
