The Iran deal should remain inviolable as the basis for further contacts on the Iranian nuclear program, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Saturday that the Iran nuclear deal must hold. This comes as US President Donald Trump will likely try to destroy the deal.
It was also a follow up to German Chancellor Angela Merkel comments that that the Iran nuclear deal was only the first step and more had to be done.
“We know the position of European colleagues to the effect that the deal must be preserved. Whether this is a sufficient or an insufficient step is another question but this is the sole substantive consensus, which was achieved by all the parties concerned as a result of very tense work. That is why, any continuation and improvement of the situation with regard to further settlement can be carried out only on the basis of something substantive and this is exactly the JCPOA [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action],” Peskov said.
“What is the main thing is the inviolability of this deal; otherwise, there will be no platform for continuing contacts and for continuing the dialog,” the Kremlin spokesman said.
