Tehran (ISNA) – Iranian foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif published a report on his Twitter account about his meeting with French foreign minister Jean-Yves Le Drian in Tehran.

Dr. Zarif wrote on Twitter:

1-In meeting today, told France FM: EU should compel US to abide by JCPOA rather than trying to appease it by repeating its extraneous demands. To defend the nuclear agreement, mere words are not sufficient. Especially since the US is an obstacle to EUs own adherence to JCPOA.

2-US & Europeans should stop pouring hundreds of billions of dollars of weapons into our region instead of questioning Irans missiles. Not restricted by UNSC, but necessary to deter repeat of our people's suffering when Saddam–with western support–showered us with missiles.

3-Iran offered political solutions for Syria and Yemen from the outset, and has always been ready to work for peace in the region, but with serious partners sharing the same objective and not engaged in appeasement gimmicks.
