Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Seyyed Abbas Mousavi has dismissed the comments made by the French president in a meeting with his US counterpart, saying such remarks are of no help in saving the Iran nuclear deal.
Mousavi made the remarks on Friday in reaction Emmanuel Macron"s remarks in his meeting with US President Donald Trump.
"Despite [making] some remarks and [issuing] political statements, the European parties have failed so far to fulfil their commitments under the JCPOA and their obligations following the US" illegal withdrawal from the agreement," Mousavi said.
The Europeans, he added, have failed to prepare the grounds for Iran to fully benefit from the multilateral agreement.
"Under the current circumstances, their move to raise issues beyond the JCPOA will not only fail to help save the JCPOA, but will also pave the way for further distrust among the parties remaining in the 2015 agreement," the spokesman said.
He also noted that such moves will take the US closer to the goal it pursued when leaving the Iran nuclear deal, which was nothing but its collapse.
Mousavi also rejected the hackneyed, contradictory, and groundless claims made by the US president, saying that such worthless allegations do not deserve a new reaction.
