UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — Tehran seeks to strengthen the nuclear deal, the last refusal to follow the restrictions was necessary to create a balance in the agreement, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said in a telephone conversation with European Council President Charles Michel.

“Iran and Europe seek to stabilize the region and strengthen the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan . It is very important for us that Europe, China and Russia play their important role in maintaining the JCPOA, ensuring the interests of Iran,” said Rouhani, whose words are quoted in his official website.

According to the Iranian president, Tehran has moved to the last stage of reducing nuclear obligations in order to create a balance in the deal.

In early January 2020, Iran announced the abandonment of “the last key limitation in the nuclear deal regarding the number of centrifuges,” and said that now “there are no restrictions on working with Iran’s nuclear program.”

At the same time, Tehran intends to continue to cooperate with the IAEA , as before, and is ready to return to fulfilling its obligations in the event of lifting the sanctions and ensuring Tehran’s interests stipulated by the nuclear deal.
