Iran shall never breach nuclear deal, Rouhani

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani asserted Wednesday that his country shall never breach the nuclear deal, known as the JCPOA, that he described as an important international accord.

President Rouhani made the remarks at a meeting in Tehran Wednesday with Japanese Prime Minister’s Special Envoy Masahiko Koumura, reported the Iranian News agency IRNA.

“Today, after the implementation of the JCPOA, we should not allow violating the deal,” IRNA quoted President Rouhani as saying.

He added that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has verified Iran’s commitment to JCPOA many times.

Meanwhile, the US has not so far been fully committed to the nuclear deal, he deplored adding that the “US is trying to make media campaign against international cooperation”.

Talks between the Iranian President and the Japanese envoy also covered the security in the region and cooperation prospects between Iran and Japan.

The Iranian president said in this connection that Japanese firms would be able to operate in Iran in oil, gas, petrochemical, dam building and ports development fields.
