Russia, China to obstruct US attempt to sabotage JCPOA

Russia and China say they would try to block any attempt by the United States to sabotage the nuclear deal between Iran and the P5+1 group of countries.

Russian Foreign Ministers Sergey Lavrov and Chinese Wang Yi made the pledge at the end of their meeting in China.

Lavrov told reporters that Moscow and Beijing are against revising any international agreement. He said the two countries think the US withdrawal from the JCPOA would be counter-productive as it reduces years of talks to zero.

Iran’s Foreign Minister has also urged the European signatories to the deal to encourage US President Donald Trump to stay in the deal and begin implementing Washington’s part of the bargain.

Earlier, a top UN diplomat called on all parties to the Iran deal to comply with the terms of the agreement.
