TEHRAN, May 11 - Cuba's Ministry of Foreign Affairs in a statement on Thursday condemned US exit from Iran nuclear deal known as JCPOA and warned about its hazardous repercussions to the Middle East stability.

TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) – The country expressed its 'profound rejection of the decision by the United States government to withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and to reimpose sanctions on that country.' 

The statement added, 'The failure to comply with these international commitments violates the rules of coexistence between states and can have serious consequences for the stability and security of the Middle East.'

The Cuban government said it was opposed to the application of unilateral coercive economic measures against any country and said it recognized the legitimate right of every country to develop nuclear energy for peaceful purposes.

Cuba also called on the United Nations Security Council to fulfill its responsibility to preserve international peace and security, and demanded the fulfillment of UN resolution 2231 on the Iranian nuclear issue, which was unanimously approved by the council.

Despite opposition from the other signatories and Democratic members of the US Congress, US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that the United States will withdraw from the Iranian nuclear deal, a landmark agreement signed in 2015 by Iran and six major powers.
