TEHRAN, November 6 - Former US secretary of state John Kerry condemned President Donald Trump’s decision to decertify the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, stressing that the agreement is working as expected.

JCPOA working as expected: John KerryTEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - “Important to note the simple things - the Iran nuclear deal is working, doing precisely what it was set up to do,” Kerry said addressing a gathering at Britain's Royal Institute of International Affairs, commonly known as Chatham House.

He added, “I heard the US president say there's a violation of the spirit of the Iran deal - There was no spirit of the deal”.

On October 13, Trump in a major confrontational stance against the Islamic Republic of Iran refused to certify the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

“The Iranian regime has committed multiple violations of the agreement…,” he further claimed.

“Violation idea has been pulled out of the sky. There is no science, no evidence that would merit decertification,” the former US secretary of state said.

“…China and Russia played significant roles in JCPOA, a truly global effort; we need more of that not less”.

The 159-page nuclear agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France, and Germany) was reached in July 2015 and came into force in January 2016.

Since the historic deal was signed in Vienna, the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed the Islamic Republic’s compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA, but some other parties, especially the US, have failed to live up to their undertakings.
