Iran Leader sets 7 conditions for the continuation of the JCPOA
Ayatollah Khamenei, while meeting with government authorities and officials during the eventful month of Ramadan on May 23, sets 7 conditions for Europe to prevent breaching of their commitments and for the continuation of the JCPOA.
He deemed the continuation of the JCPOA possible only if Europe provides seven concrete guarantees:
1- During the last two years, the US violated the JCPOA several times, and Europe remained silent. Europe must compensate for that silence.
2- The US has rejected the Resolution 2231; Europe needs to issue a resolution against the US’s violation of it.
3- Europe must promise not to raise the issues of missiles and regional affairs of the Islamic Republic.
4- Europe must encounter any sanction against the Islamic Republic and explicitly stand to US’s sanctions.
5- Europe must guarantee that Iran’s oil will be completely sold. If the US can damage the sale of our oil, we must be able to sell as much oil as we want. Europeans must guarantee that they compensate for the loss, and that they buy Iran’s oil.
6- European banks must guarantee transactions with the Islamic Republic. We have no conflicts with regard to these three countries; but we do not trust them, based on previous experience.
7- If the Europeans hesitate in responding to these demands, our right to resume the closed nuclear activities is preserved.
Also Imam Khamenei added: “There is much evidence. Some European companies have left. Some of them are leaving, or they say they are not sure if they will remain. The heads of European countries say different things. For our economy, we cannot rely on JCPOA and the Europeans. These three countries acted against their word some thirteen or fourteen years ago; in the nuclear negotiations, they promised and didn’t keep their promise, now they should prove that they won’t repeat the same untruthfulness and prevarication this time.”
