Iran to comply with JCPOA when others do so - Rouhani

Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that Tehran will again fulfill its commitments from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, whenever other countries that had signed the agreement start complying with it as well.

Speaking in a televised address, he stressed that all of the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) members besides the US showed support to Iran regarding the nuclear deal, thus "defeating" Washington again on the issue. The US had only inflicted economic damage on Iran with its withdrawal from the JCPOA, Rouhani claimed.

Ties between his country and Russia and China are now stronger and yesterday's UNSC session has proved that, he added.
