(Persia Digest) – Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson, Bahram Ghassemi, has said the speech of the White House National Security Advisor telling countries not to invest in Iran were an indication of their failed Iranophobic policies.
Ghassemi reiterated: “We consider this a threatening speech by this US official towards other countries. It is not only an abrogation of the JCPOA Iran nuclear agreement by the US, but it is also a violation of international laws and regulations by this administration.”
Persia Digest reports that WH National Security Advisor, Herbert McMaster, has asked countries to counter Tehran on the second day of the Munich Security Conference and said that they must not invest in Iran.
He told the Munich Security Conference: “The time is now, we think, to act against Iran, discuss the serious shortcomings of the JCPOA, and halt the destabilizing pursuits of its missile and nuclear programs and its growing “network of proxies” in the region.”
H R McMaster’s speech is a clear abrogation of the articles 26, 28, and 29 of the JCPOA. According to Article 26, the US has committed to keep and implement the JCPOA with goodwill and prevent intervention in Iran's realization of the lifting of sanctions set out in Appendix 2.
Article 28 of the JCPOA also reads: “Iran and the P5+1 group will implement this agreement in good faith in a constructive space based on mutual respect, and refrain from any actions contrary to its letter, spirit, and purpose that would disrupt its successful implementation.”
Article 29 states: “In accordance with their own laws, EU member countries and the US will refrain from any policies that will directly and negatively impact the normalization of trade and economic relations with Iran and be in conflict with their obligations not to disrupt the successful implementation of this agreement.”
