Despite reducing commitments, Iran claims it respects 2015 deal


Despite continuously reducing commitments, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi claimed on Monday Iran still remains in its 2015 nuclear deal despite rolling back its commitments to the pact, criticising European powers for failing to salvage the agreement, Reuters reported.

"Tehran still remains in the deal ... the European powers' claims about Iran violating the deal are unfounded," he told a televised weekly news conference.

"Whether Iran will further decrease its nuclear commitments will depend on other parties and whether Iran's interests are secured under the deal," Mousavi said.
