Iran to give nuclear deal signatories 60 more days to save accord

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Wednesday that before Iran proceeds to the third stage of reducing its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), it will give the signatories of the nuclear pact 60 more days to fulfill its demands and save the deal.

Rouhani said at a session of the Iranian government that if 60 days of the second stage pass without bringing any results, Iran will certainly proceed to the third stage.

He said Iran remains committed to the JCPOA and ready for dialogue.

Last year, US President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew the US from the deal and re-imposed economic sanctions on Iran. Other signatories of the deal, including the European Union, insisted that Tehran has fully complied with the treaty and urged the US not to re-impose sanctions.
