Zarif to be invited to European Union for talks over Iran protests

Zarif to be invited to European Union for talks over Iran protests

Signers of the letter, organized by the National Coalition to Prevent an Iranian Nuclear Weapon, included Richard Lugar, a former Republican chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee; Paul O'Neill, who served as Treasury secretary under Republican President George W. Bush; Michael Hayden, former director of the National Security Agency and Central Intelligence Agency, and Admiral Eric Olson, former commander of Special Forces. "If the U.S. does not meet its commitment in the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), the Islamic Republic of Iran would take decisions that might affect its current cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency", he said as cited by Iranian state news agency, Fars.

"The most important lesson to be taught [from reaching the nuclear deal] is that we can be hopeful of solving complicated problems through diplomatic dialogues", he said.

Trump also seized on the recent unrest to again slam a multiparty nuclear deal with Iran as deeply flawed.

The country is, in fact, "ready for any scenario", Seyed Abbas Araqchi, the country's Deputy FM said of Washington's possible withdrawal from JCPOA.

"Our region will not become a safer region without the JCPOA".

Iranian Vice President Ali Akbar Salehi warned that the country may reconsider its cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) over U.S. refusal to implement the Iranian nuclear deal, local media reported on Monday. He noted that the White House and Congress would work on the "serious flaws" of the deal, adding that if Washington's efforts to "improve" the agreement failed, the country would withdraw from the accord. If the president fails to sign the waivers, which are to be extended every 120 days, the restrictions on Tehran will be automatically re-imposed.

Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif is due to travel for talks with the European parties to the deal - Britain, France, Germany and the EU - at the end of the week.
