Russia is trying to convince the US to stay committed to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said.
“Russia is currently working on persuading the US leadership to keep the implemented Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program,” Sputnik quoted Ryabkov as saying on Tuesday.
“We are focusing our efforts … on convincing our partners in the US government that they need to fulfill their duties under Iran’s nuclear deal,” Ryabkov added.
“If the United States, under any circumstances, withdraws from the nuclear deal with Iran … any side [which exits the agreement] will strike an irreparable blow to the international and regional security,” the Russian diplomat concluded.
