Austria underlines keeping Iran Deal

Tehran,Austrian President Alexander Van der Bellen in a message stressed preserving Iran nuclear deal also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

'I would like to underline that the nuclear agreement with Iran, negotiated in Vienna, is the cornerstone of the solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. This agreement must be retained,' he said in a Twitter message referring to his meeting with UN secretary-general Antonio Guterres on Monday.

The meeting with UN secretary-general also focused on a number of international issues, including the conflicts in Syria, Yemen, Israel/Palestine, in and around Ukraine, and recent developments on the Korean peninsula.

Earlier, Austrian Envoy to Iran Stefan Scholz said Austria is 100 percent complying with Iran nuclear deal.
