IRNA - Islamic Republic News Agency
Tehran, Sept 24, IRNA -- Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message rebuked the European signatories to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for the paralysis to honor their commitment.
"E3's paralysis in fulfilling their obligations w/o US permission has been clear since May 2018," Zarif wrote in his Twitter account on Tuesday.
He added: "Solution to this deficiency: mustering will to forge independent path–not parroting absurd US claims & requests INCONSISTENT with JCPOA."
"No new deal before compliance w/ current one," Zarif reiterated.
Zarif remarks came in reaction to Europeans' statement calling for a new agreement with Iran.
The E3 in a joint statement requested Iran for renegotiate on its nuclear deal, missile issues and regional security.
"The time has come for Iran to accept negotiation on a long-term framework for its nuclear program as well as on issues related to regional security," E3 concluded in their statement.
