Tehran (ISNA) - A delegation of Russia’s nuclear agency Rosatom and Iranian officials discussed retuning Fordow facility, Russia’s ambassador to Tehran Levan Dzhagaryan said in an interview with TASS.

“Moscow is satisfied with the level of Russian-Iranian cooperation in the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Tehran’s nuclear program,” he said, adding Rosatom’s delegation, which presently is visiting the country, discusses "certain practical aspects of the project to reconfigure the Fordow reactor."

"We hope to see soon the results of these consultations," Dzhagaryan said.

The JCPOA, signed in Vienna in the summer of 2015, involves Iran, Russia, the United States, China, the United Kingdom, France and Germany. It stipulates that Tehran should limit its nuclear agenda in return for the removal of international sanctions.

After Iran implemented its obligations, which was verified by IAEA inspections, then-US President Barack Obama lifted sanctions imposed on Tehran. But the US president recently said that Washington would withdraw from the JCPOA unless "the deal’s disastrous flaws" were fixed.

According to the Russian ambassador, both Tehran and Moscow are concerned about the situation around JCPOA. "There are reasons to understand our European counterparts also worry about this, as they had applied much effort to reach the deal."

"I would like to stress once again - Iran observes fully its obligations under JCPOA," he said. "This deal is the result of long complicated international talks and it should remain as it was made in summer 2015. There can be no question of any changes in JCPOA”.
