IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency

Tehran, May 1, IRNA -- The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was unanimous in appreciating Iran's commitment to the nuclear deal and the International Atomic Energy Agency, Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Members of the Joint Commission were all of the view that Iran has fulfilled its commitments, Bahram Qasemi said during his weekly press conference on Monday.

'Iran also complained to the Joint Commission about defaults on the implementation of the nuclear deal, particularly those by the United States,' Qasemi told reporters.

Iran also complained to the commission about some comments made by the new US President and the stance adopted by him that has caused disruptions in the anti-sanctions mechanisms put in place in the financial and banking sectors, he said.

The Foreign Ministry spokesman then referred to final statement of the JCPOA Joint Commission read by Deputy Secretary General for Political Affairs of European External Action Service Helga Schmid, calling it basic and serious.

"The statement constitutes a serious and basic issue that demands special attention," Qasemi said.

"It also includes the United States and the Americans should also fulfill their commitments,' he said.

"All members were unanimous that the JCPOA should remain in place and go on," the Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

According to Qasemi, other issues, including China's cooperation to redesign Iran's heavy water nuclear reactor in the city of Arak, was among the issues supported by the P5+1 group of nations.
