JCPOA breakdown to entail chaos in international relations: Lavrov

Tehran (ISNA) - The breakdown of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear program, as well as failure on other international agreements will inevitably entail a turmoil in international affairs, Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the Kommersant daily on Sunday.

"If international deals agreed by the leading countries on this or that conflict are broken down, it may entail mishmash when everyone is for himself. It will be very sad," he stressed. "I think it is unacceptable, be it Iran, Syria, Libya, Yemen, the Korean Peninsula, which also had an agreement of 2005 committing to paper what North Korea and others must do. A couple of weeks after it was signed, the Americans ‘dug out’ an old story about some account in a Macau bank and used it as pretext to arrest North Korean account."

Last week, Trump said his country would withdraw from the JCPOA if changes were not brought into it. In his words, he was "waiving the application of certain nuclear sanctions, but only in order to secure our European allies’ agreement to fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal", TASS reported.
