Russia: US demands unacceptable for Iran

Russia: US demands unacceptable for Iran

For the first time since the accord came into force in 2015, China, Russia, France, Britain and Germany gathered - at Iran's request - without the United States, which pulled out on May 8.

Tehran wants a full package of proposals from Europe by the end of May, after which leaders will decide whether to stay in the agreement, the official said.

@hrome2: "Currently, we are not starting enrichment of 20% but we must be ready so that if it becomes necessary, and we see the JCPOA become useless, the activities that were stopped because of the JCPOA can be resumed". "Plan B has just started to be figured out".

President Donald Trump's May 8 order to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, and reimpose USA sanctions has cast doubt over whether the deal can still work.

Also in exchange for Iran continuing to honor the deal, Khamenei said the European nations should guarantee that they will not only continue to buy Iranian oil but will try to block US plans to curb Iranian oil sales through renewed sanctions. The Europeans must take a resolution against the U.S.to the UN Security Council and file complaint against the US move. Ahead of the USA exit, French President Emmanuel Macron said two pillars of its policy going forward include addressing Iran's ballistic missile program and its role in Middle East conflicts.

The 2015 accord rests on lifting sanctions and allowing business with Iran in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program.

The supreme leader called on nations to "guarantee the total sales of Iran's oil", which means the continent will have to make up for any oil sales which have been cancelled because of United States sanctions. He also rejected any new negotiations over Iran's missile programme, which was not covered in the nuclear deal and which Iran says it will never give up. Some Western companies have already quit Iran or said they may have to leave because of the new USA sanctions. British, Chinese, French, German and Russian officials will try to flesh out with Iran's deputy foreign minister a strategy to save the deal by keeping oil and investment flowing.

"We need both legal and political commitments by the remaining participants of the JCPOA, that they can continue the JCPOA with Iran without the USA and they can provide Iran with the benefits of sanction-lifting", stated Araghchi. He asked Europe to "make up for [its] silence" when the USA violated the 2015 deal, and to "stand up against the U.S. sanctions". The deal lets Iran enrich but under tight restrictions. Some Western companies have already quit Iran or said they may have to leave because of the new U.S. sanctions.

Trump denounced the accord, completed under his predecessor Barack Obama, because it did not cover Iran's ballistic missile program or its role in Middle East wars, or address the issue of what happens after the deal begins to expire in 2025.

European nations share some USA concerns but say that torpedoing the nuclear deal makes it far harder to address them. They have said that as long as Tehran meets its commitments, they would remain in the deal.
