P5+1 Not Fully Honoring Its Obligations in JCPOA

Wednesday, August 3, 2016

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani says the P5+1 group of countries is not fully carrying out its obligations under the nuclear deal with the Islamic Republic.

Rouhani said the P5+1 has had “some shortcomings” in honoring its side of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He, however, said the JCOPA has brought about "a good climate for the country and its economy," Rouhani said.

"Had the other side preformed well, we would have been in a better condition today, but there are some acts of obstructionism," Rouhani said.

He added that the Zionist regime of Israel was always against a nuclear deal and threw spanners in the works of the negotiations and some regional countries also used to "childishly oppose the JCPOA and are continuing to create obstacles." The Iranian president added that the US Congress is also seeking to create problems for the implementation of the JCPOA.

"Had the US implemented the JCPOA in good faith, we may have trusted the opposite side and agreed to enter into negotiations with them on another issue, which would have served the interests of the region, the US, Iran and others; however, they did not score well on their test," the Iranian president said.  

"The US failed to properly carry out its obligations and missed out on the opportunity for cooperation in other areas," Rouhani added.

Elsewhere, Rouhani said Iran is a pillar of stability in the region and is influential in the stability of its neighboring countries.

The Iranian president added that he is more optimistic about the economic, social and security condition of the country since the beginning of the Iranian calendar year four months ago.

"Throughout these three years, we have witnessed an unprecedented peace and stability courtesy of the efforts by the country's Armed Forces and nation and this peace and stability will continue and Iran will always remain the focal point of security and stability in the region," he said.

Rouhani expressed hope to be able to address the Iranian national on national television at shorter intervals.
