U.S. unilateral withdrawal from JCPOA, unethical: Pres. Rouhani

COLOMBO May 11 – Sri Lanka’s military on Thursday said that it was prepared to face a war crimes inquiry in order to clear its name

President Hassan Rouhani, the key architect of the 2015 agreement, should "present his apologies to the Iranian people for the damage caused in the cadre of the nuclear deal", Jannati said.

Iran and Sri Lanka sign five agreements to increase bilateral cooperation Sun, May 13, 2018, 07:30 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

His announcement follows an official statement released by Iran's Foreign Ministry on Friday, in which Foreign Minister Javad Zarif warned that Iran would relaunch its nuclear program should the United States impose new sanctions.

Rouhani made similarly conciliatory comments on Tuesday, and on Saturday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif began a tour of other signatory nations in an attempt to save the deal.

China's Foreign Minister Wang Yi said he believed Mr Zarif's tour would "improve countries. understanding of Iran's position" and help Tehran protect its "legitimate national interests". He added, however, that other Treaty partners - Germany, France, Britain, China and Russian Federation - can still save the agreement and the credibility of worldwide agreements.


The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also described the United States' unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as a move against morality, convention and global laws, saying, "the commitments of governments in the worldwide system are continuous and no government can withdraw from the commitments that the previous government had made based on the regulations of the United Nations".

A readout of the call with President Hassan Rouhani that was issued by May's office said: 'Both leaders agreed the importance of continued dialogue between the two countries, and looked forward to the meeting of UK, German, French and Iranian foreign ministers in Brussels on Tuesday'.

The head of the elite Revolutionary Guards also warned against relying on foreign powers.

On Wednesday, Jafari cast doubt on European nations' ability to save the accord.
