Spokesman Denies Report on Iran’s Condition for Staying in JCPOA
Iran"s Foreign Ministry spokesman has rejected a report by Reuters regarding the country"s condition for staying in the Iran nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Seyyed Abbas Mousavi on Tuesday dismissed the "fabricated" news that Tehran has conditioned its remaining in the JCPOA on the sale of at least one and a half million barrels of oil per day.
"Iran"s rightful views and demands have been explicitly and clearly expressed in a letter sent by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani on May 8, 2019 to heads of the states which have remained in the JCPOA," said the spokesman.
"Turning to such fabricated news and partial and inaccurate speculations in the public and media atmosphere is not only not constructive, but can ruin the climate needed for serious diplomacy at this juncture," he said.
