Tehran (ISNA) - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said on Wednesday he hoped that Iran would not quit the nuclear agreement Iran reached in 2015 with world powers, Reuters reported.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said this week that Iran could abandon the deal "within hours" if the United States imposed any more new sanctions.

Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council – the United States, Britain, France, Russia and China – plus Germany reached the JCPOA on July 14, 2015 and began implementing it in January 2016.

Lavrov also said he hoped the United States would not violate its obligations under the nuclear deal with Iran.

"I think unilateral sanctions ... are irresponsible actions that can hurt and undermine the balance achieved," Lavrov said, commenting on new restrictions recently imposed by Washington on Iran.
