All should pay the price to save nuclear deal: Zarif

September 2, 2018

TEHRAN – Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Saturday that in order to save the 2015 nuclear accord and benefit from it, other countries, especially the Europeans, should be willing to “pay the price”, IRIB news reported.

Speaking to reporters, Zarif said if other countries deem the deal, officially known as the JCPOA, as an important global achievement, they should be fully prepared to protect it.

He also said the U.S. not only breaks the laws, but also pressures other countries to do the same, emphasizing that resistance against such law-breaking tendency is necessary “otherwise it will cost them much more than [U.S. withdrawal from] BARJAM (the JCPOA).”
