Zarif: No one can tear up Iran nuclear deal

IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Paris, June 22, IRNA -- Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif said on Wednesday that no one can tear up the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), reached between Iran and the six world powers last year.

Zarif made the remarks in a meeting in Paris with French Senate President Gerard Larcher.

Referring to an agreement between Iran and the US Boeing company, Zarif said the agreement will solve the problem of Iran's agreement with Airbus.

On economic and trade cooperation between Iran and France, Zarif said that the two countries have good cooperation particularly on auto-making. However, he noted that banking ties create some obstacles.

Iran has remained committed to all its pledges under the JCPOA and the UN nuclear agency has confirmed Iran's commitment, he noted, adding that the psychological atmosphere following the sanctions stops the European banks from doing business with Iran.

He assured the European banks that they will be subject to no damage if they cooperate with Iran.

'I believe that the French and European banks had better break the current psychological atmosphere because it will benefit all, even the US,' the foreign minister said.

Both Iran and the other parties will honor their commitments, he said.
The foreign minister said that even the United States will not refuse to implement a deal for which it has made two years of negotiations.
