Iran to lessen commitments to JCPOA
Tehran, A year after disloyalties and the US unilateral exit from Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA), Iran is scheduled to announce its decision on reducing commitment to this international accord on Wednesday.
Iran's new decision will be conveyed to the ambassadors of E3+2 (the UK, France, Germany, Russia and China) by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi.
The ambassadors will be invited to Foreign Ministry and will be informed of Iran's new decision.
President Hassan Rouhani will also write separate letters to the E3+2 leaders on Wednesday saying Iran exercised restraint over the past year, but the other parties to the deal failed to adhere to their commitments so that Iran had no other way but to reduce its commitments under the deal.
In completion of President Rouhani's letters, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will write a letter to EU Foreign Policy chief Federica Mogherini to announce the technical and legal details of Iran's new decision to reduce its commitments.
The text of the letters will be among the confidential documents of JCPOA Joint Commission, but the news about them will be published.
What Iran specifically wants is to return to banking and oil trade conditions before US exit from the deal on May 8, 2017.
