It is noteworthy that the agreement promises to give Iran an economic boost by limiting the nuclear program. The remaining powers after the departure of America – France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany – are struggling to escape the re-enforced US embargo. Iran is ignoring the limits of enrichment of uranium etc. in the agreement to pressure other countries. Addressing via video conference, Salehi said, “It is very important that those countries find a way to solve the problem that has arisen due to the unlawful withdrawal of the US agreement.” “There is still a broad consensus among the international community that the JCPOA should be saved,” he said.
