Shamkhani says new steps to reduce commitment to JCPOA coming July 7

June 25, 2019

TEHRAN - Iran will take new steps to reduce its commitments under the nuclear deal with world powers on July 7, Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council, said on Tuesday in a note to Fars news agency.

Shamkhani said European signatories to the nuclear deal had not done enough to save it. The 2015 deal requires Iran to curb its nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions.

The United States withdrew from the deal last year and reimposed sanctions. Iran says it intends to continue complying with it, but cannot do so indefinitely unless European countries find ways to protect it from U.S. sanctions.
