"The return to a situation, which was before the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, is impossible".
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) "performs regular checks and confirms their [Iran's] strict fulfillment of obligations", the foreign minister stated.
"There is no alternative to diplomatic methods on the basis of dialogue among all interested parties", he said in an address to the Moscow 2017 Non-Proliferation Conference. The agreement was reached between Tehran and the so-called "P5+1" - five permanent members of the UNSC (China, France, Russia, the United Kingdom and US) as well as Germany. Prolonging the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) for five years is a key factor for maintaining the nuclear disarmament process, Director of the Russian Foreign Ministry's Nonproliferation and Arms Control Department, Mikhail Ulyanov, said on Friday. Trump argued the Iran nuclear deal is no longer serving USA national security interests and accused Tehran of committing "multiple violations of the agreement". "We will not be the first who violate the agreement", Araghchi, adding that Iran would "react" to those who quit the agreement.
