Lavrov: Trade with Iran will not depend on US ‘whim’

vMoscow, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Friday that other parties to Iran's 2015 nuclear deal had agreed to work out ways of trading with Iran independently from the US whim.

Lavrov said new ways of trading with Iran would be needed if Washington restores sanctions against Tehran, according to Interfax.

Foreign ministers of the JCPOA member states presented their proposed package to keep the deal and underlined the need for maintaining it and promoting economic relations with Iran.

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif in a message underlined achievements made in Friday's JCPOA joint commission ministerial meeting in Vienna.

Highlights of #JCPOA meeting today: 1. All committed to ensure Iran's benefits: US isolated; 2. Moving in right direction on concrete steps for timely implementation of commitments; 3. Iran reasserted its rights to respond to US violations if remedial measures prove insufficient, Zarif wrote in his Twitter account.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) joint commission meeting was held in Vienna's Cobourg Hotel on Friday to discuss the future of this multilateral agreement.
