TEHRAN, Sep. 12 (MNA) – The US lack of commitment to Iran's nuclear deal will be pursued by Iranian delegation while in New York to participate in the upcoming UN General Assembly's annual session, said senior official Ali Akbar Velayati.
Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his colleagues are well aware of the fact that the Americans did not abide by their commitments as promised, and all instances of their failure to observe their end of the deal will be pursued during the visit of the Iranian delegation to New York for the UN General Assembly session,” the Leader’s advisor on international affairs, Ali Akbar Velayati, said among reporters following a meeting with India’s Minister of State for External Affairs Mubashir Javed Akbar in Tehran on Sunday evening.
“We distinguish between 5+1 member countries," he said, adding “undoubtedly, the behavior of the Russian and the Chinese side, or even the French side are different from other member states.”
He went on to add, “for instance, Washington opposed Russia's decision to sell S-300 missile system to Iran, arguing that it was in violation of the nuclear deal, but the Russians firmly responded that the delivery of the system was not in contradiction to the JCPOA.”
Velayati further stressed that Iran does not consider the 5+1 group of countries as being the same, noting that the US tends to break its promises more than others.
Elsewhere, he pointed to the US and Russia’s plan for a truce in Syria, saying “ceasefire is acceptable only when all sides to the conflict, particularly the Syrian government and its allies including Iran and Hezbollah, have agreed to it.”
He went on to add, “ceasefire also must not be used as a vacuum by certain terrorist groups such as al-Nusra Front to reinforce their units. The goal of ceasefire has been announced as delivery of humanitarian aid to people in need.”
Velayati then touched upon his meeting with the Indian official, saying “relations between Iran and India are deeply rooted in historical and friendly ties, and the two countries have been expanding cooperation, especially since the recent visit of Indian Prime Minister to Iran and their signing of a trilateral agreement with Afghanistan.”
