  • Kono asks Iran to stay in nuclear deal

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Sunday started a tour to save the nuclear agreement by first visiting China, a party to the multilateral agreement.

"We hope this visit in China and other countries to create a clear future framework of the agreement concluded in 2015", said Mohammad Javad Zarif.

Meanwhile, the Iranian parliament's website quoted an Iranian official as putting a deadline for European countries to guarantee Iran's interests in the wake of the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

According to Zarif, the objective of his trip is to get guarantees from the other participants of the nuclear deal that the interests of Iran will be protected.

European signatories have undertaken that a flurry of diplomatic activity to try to guard trade deals worth billions.

Nullifying the claim that China was engaging with North Korea more at this moment out of fear of getting sidelined in a US-initiated peace process, it said Beijing was doing so because of its own importance.

Beijing has expressed regret over Trump's decision to withdraw from the nuclear and says it remains committed to the pact.

Iranian officials have said they hope Europe will work with them to preserve the deal.

The top Iranian diplomat said he and Lavrov discussed the JCPOA and a broad range of bilateral, regional and worldwide issues.




Earlier in the week, France, Germany and the United Kingdom expressed "regret and concern" over the US' withdrawal.

Earlier, in a telephone conversation with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Rouhani called on the European states to shortly clarify the manner in which they will "guarantee" their commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

After long negotiations, Iran had agreed in July 2015 to freeze its nuclear program in return for the lifting of punishing global sanctions.

Russian Federation has also criticised Trump's decision, with Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov alleging the move was "protectionism in disguise", in comments made on Thursday to state news agency TASS.

Al Jazeera's Zein Basravi, reporting from Tehran, said Zarif's tour was an attempt to "salvage the nuclear deal and keep it on life support".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has called the USA withdrawal "impudent" and "worthless".

Iran's Deputy Foreign Minister for Political Affairs Abbas Araqchi said Germany, France and the United Kingdom had 60 days to provide Iran *with enough guarantees to ensure it could* stay in the deal, according to IRNA.

Russian Federation is trying to keep the landmark 2015 accord alive in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's decision, pushing it into rare cooperation with Europe.
