Washington’s ‘Contempt for Law and Diplomacy’ Threatens U.S.’s Security: Zarif

TEHRAN – Tuesday marked the fifth anniversary of the signing of Iran’s Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPOA) nuclear deal. This agreement promises relief from sanctions on Tehran in exchange for a commitment not to pursue nuclear weapons.
The United States withdrew from the deal in 2018 and reintroduced severe energy and banking sanctions against Tehran.
The anniversary of the JCPOA signing is a “reminder” that “illegal behavior by the United States should not be the yardstick by which international standards are measured,” Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif tweeted.
The tweet was accompanied by screenshots of news headlines about the Trump administration’s withdrawal from a series of international agreements and organizations over the years, ranging from the Paris Agreement on climate change to the Trans-Pacific Partnership, the Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty with Russia, and the Iran nuclear deal, as well as U.S. membership in the World Health Organization.
“The United States’ disregard for law and diplomacy places it in global disrepute and threatens global and United States security,” Zarif suggested.
Zarif’s tweet followed comments from the European Union’s foreign policy chief Josep Borrell, promising Tuesday that Brussels would “do everything possible” to try to save the nuclear deal, and praising it as a “historic multilateral achievement for the non-global nuclear proliferation. ”
The JCPOA was signed by Iran, U.S., Russia, China, France, Great Britain, Germany and the European Union on July 14, 2015, and then endorsed by the U.N. Security Council, which promised relief of sanctions, including the lifting of the U.N. arms embargo against Tehran within five years.
The Trump government withdrew from the deal in May 2018 after successful lobbying by Israel and reintroduced severe sanctions against Iran.
Since then, Iran has accused European JCPOA signatories of failing to do enough to allow the Islamic Republic to bypass the U.S. sanctions regime, and in May 2019 began to reject some of its voluntary commitments under the agreement.
Earlier this year, the United States began lobbying to extend the arms embargo beyond its October deadline, prompting Iran to accuse Washington of trying to “intimidate” others into violating the JCPOA.
To extend the embargo, the United States has presented the legal case that it is indeed still a part of the nuclear deal. Zarif has criticized Washington for its logic on the matter, saying that “it was not unexpected that they advised people to drink or inject disinfectants to combat the coronavirus and to remain part of the deal after the official leaves it.”.
Other members of the Security Council, including Russia and China, and even the U.S. allies, France and Germany, have hinted that they would not support the U.S. attempt to extend the arms embargo.
