TEHRAN (Iran News) – Speaking in a ceremony held on the occasion of Iranian National Arbor Day (March 5), Zarif said that the US itself has left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and should take the first step to return to the deal.
Former US President Donald Trump’s administration once confirmed that Iran has been committed to the JCPOA and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed the same thing in five reports.
They should first solve the problem, he said, adding that if the problem is mistrust, it is actually Iran’s lack of trust in the West that has never appropriately implemented the JCPOA.
They need to solve this, and then as Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei has said, Iran will implement the deal.
Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and a number of top exporters of goods and technical-engineering services have discussed foreign trade and export of such services in a meeting in Tehran.
“The export of goods and technical-engineering services is key to the development of Iran, and a leap in production is not possible without exports,” Zarif said.
“We have emphasized to our ambassadors in other countries that their performance is evaluated based on the amount of non-oil exports, the export of technical-engineering services, the export of human resources, import of capital and technology, and development of tourism (increased visits of tourists to Iran),” he added.
