Putin to IAEA: Russia will continue Iran nuclear deal


Russian President Vladimir Putin has told the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) that despite the recent U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal, Moscow remains ready to enforce the agreement.

“As far as Iran is concerned, the president reaffirmed Russia’s readiness to continue fulfilling the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) regardless of the United States’ decision to withdraw from it,” Putin presidential aide Yury Ushakov said on Monday, Washington Times reported.

Mr. Ushakov spoke after Mr. Putin and IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano met in the Black Sea resort town of Sochi. He added that the IAEA confirmed that as of now, “Iran continues to fully implement its obligations under the JCPOA.”

Last week, President Trump withdrew the U.S. from the landmark 2015 nuclear accord and restored harsh sanctions against Iran.
