Stating that Western countries should fulfil their commitments, the President added, “According to the approval of all observers, the Islamic Republic of Iran has complied with its obligations in the agreement, but instead, the United States has withdrawn from this agreement and the European countries have also violated their obligations”.
Dr Raisi described the action of the United States and European countries to pursue the issuance of a resolution against Iran by the Board of Governors of the International Atomic Energy Agency during the negotiations as brazen and contrary to the requirements of negotiation and agreement, saying, “The removal of oppressive sanctions against Iran will provide the basis for agreement and cooperation”.
