TEHRAN, Jan. 11 (MNA) – The latest session of the JCPOA Joint Commission ended in Vienna with a press release stressing US guarantee that ISA extension would not violate the nuclear deal.

The Joint Commission also reaffirmed obligations of the parties regarding the lifting of sanctions on an ongoing basis and in particular in accordance with paragraph 21 of the nuclear deal.
