Iran will not connect commercial relations to restoration of JCPOA

According to the Foreign Ministry's spokesperson, Iran would not attach the growth of its commercial connections with other nations to the conclusion of discussions on the resurrection of the 2015 nuclear deal.

Iran (IMNA) - Nasser Kan'ani, speaking at a weekly news conference on Monday, said the Islamic Republic will seek neutralization of unilateral sanctions rather than waiting for the outcome of discussions aimed at reinstating the nuclear accord, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

"In line with its inherent duty, Iran's diplomatic apparatus seeks to develop foreign relations with all countries willing to develop relations within the framework of mutual respect," Kan'ani added.

Kan'ani stated that through attempts to improve Iran's ties with neighboring countries, the government has succeeded in boosting its standing in regional and international dynamics.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman noted that Iran has tried to join multilateral international organizations, the most recent of which was membership in the BRICS group of growing economies, and has even inked long-term comprehensive cooperation agreements with friendly countries.

The official further stated that Tehran will pursue all legal avenues to restore the rights of the Iranian people.

"Despite the sanctions, we were able to export our oil and maintain our position." The harsh sanctions have clearly limited Iran and its allies, but Iran has demonstrated that it will not be limited by the bans," he added.

Kan'ani further stated that it was the US side that rejected the draft accord provided by EU foreign policy leader Josep Borrell on the resurrection of the JCPOA.
