Beijing, May 18: Iranian foreign minister has on Friday urged Russia and China to take some “concrete actions” to protect the landmark 2015 international nuclear pact as the minister warned of a “dangerous” condition amid heightened tensions with the United States.
According to Dawn news reports, foreign minister Jazad Zarif was quoted during a meeting with Wang Yi, the Chinese foreign minister, on Friday evening as saying, “Iran and China need to think together and work together about preserving a multilateral global order and avoiding a unilateral global order.”
Zarif has also called on the international community to protect the International Nuclear Forces (INF) Treaty, known as the JCPOA – Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
But however, President Donald Trump last year pulled US out of the INF pact, since then, he imposed US sanction over Tehran.
“So far the international community has mostly released statements rather than taking action,” Zarif said.
“If the international community and other JCPOA member countries and our friends in the JCPOA like China and Russia want to keep this achievement, it is required that they make sure the Iranian people enjoy the benefits of the JCPOA with concrete actions,” he added.
