Marking two years since signing the nuclear deal with the Western powers, Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif slammed the US following claims made by US senators that Iran is not upholding its end of the agreement. “On seven different occasions, the IAEA declared that Iran is entirely fulfilling its part of the deal. The same cannot be said about the US,” Zarif claimed.

Two years after the nuclear deal was signed between Iran and the Western powers, the Islamic republic continues slamming the US. “On seven different occasions, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) declared that Iran is entirely fulfilling its part of the deal,” stated Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. “Unfortunately, the same cannot be said about the US.”

Zarif’s remarks come following a critical letter sent by four US senators, including Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz, in which they asserted that Iran is not upholding its end of the deal. The senators accused the regime for continuing its process to expand its nuclear stock, when Iran refused the IAEA access to the Parchin nuclear facility and is utilizing more centrifuges than was granted to the country in the agreement.

“When we began negotiations about the agreement, we decided that the IAEA will be the only body allowed to monitor the implementation of the nuclear aspect of the agreement,” Zarif continued. “The US failed to uphold its part of the agreement. For example, when the White House declared two days ago that President Trump took advantage of his visit in Hamburg in order to dissuade leaders from other powers from maintaining relationships with Iran – that is a violation of the spirit of the nuclear agreement. The US needs to start holding up its end.”
