(Persia Digest) – In a statement, Iran’s Foreign Ministry has responded to Trump’s sanctions waiver for Iran and the need to amend the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, the JCPOA.
As reported by Persia Digest, the statement reads: “On Friday, 12 January 2018, the US President inevitably issued a sanctions waiver for Iran despite his year-long efforts to kill the JCPOA.”
Nevertheless, following his year-long trend, the US President continues his hostile policies against the people of Iran and the repeated threats he has been unable to implement.
The statement continues: “The JCPOA is an international document and not re-negotiable. Iran is not obligated to act beyond is commitments in the JCPOA. It will not accept any amendments to the agreement, not now and not in the future. It will not allow the agreement to be linked to any other issues. It will remain faithful to its commitments under the JCPOA like all its other partners.”
It continues to read: “Mr Trump’s policies over the past year and his statement today are in direct conflict with Articles 26, 28, and 29 of the JCPOA. The US decision to add a number Iranian citizens and non-Iranian names to its self-fabricated, illegal list of sanctions is a further indication of continued US administration hostilities towards the great people of Iran. Placing the name of Iran’s Head of the Judiciary on its so-called new sanctions list has crossed all red lines in acceptable international behavior. It is a violation of the principles of international law and breaches the bilateral and international obligations of the United States.
