U.S. JCPOA exit opportunity for Iran-Austria ties: envoy

July 21, 2018

TEHRAN – The Austrian ambassador to Tehran has said that the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 nuclear deal has provided opportunities for his country to develop new modes of cooperation with Iran.

President Rouhani and Austria’s head of state “jointly agreed that Iran has a universally endorsed, inseparable and independent right to enjoy economic benefits from the JCPOA as long as Iran itself fulfills its obligations from the pact,” said Stefan Scholz, IRNA reported on Wednesday.

The Austrian ambassador whose country took over the rotating EU presidency on July first pointed to the efforts by the 28-nation bloc to find ways to save the nuclear deal, saying his country is working hard first of all on putting the EU package together.
