Touching upon te US lack of commitment to nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Salehi said, 'Zaif has sent two letters to Yukiya Amano, the Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini to counter Washington's bullying measures.'

He added that Zarif's measures indicate the foreign ministry's efforts for tackling US hostile measures.

'I'm confident that Iran's Foreign Ministry would do its best to pursue implementation of JCPOA and avoid measures that hinder the successful realization of the nuclear deal,' Salehi added.
