EghtesadOnline: Head of the Expediency Council's Center for Strategic Research Ali-Akbar Velayati says the Board Overseeing Implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) convenes regularly with President Rouhani attending it and examining implementation of the deal.
Talking to reporters after a meeting with the Head of Belgian Parliament's Foreign Relations Committee Derek Vander Molen, he added that Iran has adhered to it commitments from the beginning and if the opposite party wants the trend takes its course, they should also observe their commitments.
Dismissing the US Secretary of State John Kerry's claim that the Americans have kept their promises, Velayati said they have launched a propaganda and all know that they broke their promises and refused to fulfill their commitments, reports IRNA.
Asked about the US' seeking excuses for military intervention in Syria, he said that the Americans have examined their chances in Afghanistan and Iraq and they were defeated in both countries.
Syria, which is fighting against the aliens, especially the westerners, and the US is certainly capable of withstanding US military intervention, he said.
Velayati further noted that Syria is standing on its feet and Legitimate President Bashar Assad strongly defends Syrians' stances and interests.
If the Americans are wise, they will never repeat the same mistake they made in Iraq and Afghanistan because they will sustain a crushing defeat this time, he said.
Responding to a question over Germans' setting conditions for communication with Iran, the official said, 'They say such things to please the Zionists and the Americans and we need not such a communication with the Germany.'
They said they will forge ties with Iran if it forges communications with the Zionist regime, but to no avail, Velayati said, noting that Iran will never recognize the occupying regime.
