TEHRAN, October 18 - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif and his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian discussed Iran’s 2015 nuclear deal with P5+1 countries, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran, France discuss nuclear dealTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - During a phone call, they also conferred on regional developments as well.

Last Friday, US President Donald Trump in his speech in White House refused to certify the nuclear deal.

While Trump did not pull Washington out of the nuclear deal, he gave Congress 60 days to decide whether to reimpose economic sanctions against Tehran that have been lifted under the pact. Reimposing the sanctions would put the US at odds with other signatories to the accord and the European Union.

The US president insists that the nuclear deal should be renegotiated, or else it may face the prospect of total collapse.

This is while all other signatories, including Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have stressed their full commitment to the JCPOA.

Iran has vehemently rejected the possibility of renegotiation, warning that any hostile action against the JCPOA will jeopardize regional and global peace and security.

The EU foreign ministers also urged US lawmakers on Monday not to reimpose sanctions on Tehran and warned against the serious consequences for regional peace of a failure to maintain the international agreement backed by the UN Security Council.
