US government stance towards nuclear deal is real concerns now: French FM
EghtesadOnline: French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said on Monday that Paris is committed to defend the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action reached between Iran and G5+1(US, UK, France, Russia, China plus Germany).
France's foreign minister said upon arrival in Tehran that being bound to the JCPOA benefits all.
Underling his country’s commitment to defend the JCPOA, he said it is necessary that Iran remains committed to the deal, too, ILNA reported.
There are real concerns about the US government stance towards the nuclear deal, the French foreign minister added.
“I arrived in Iran as a defender of JCPOA, and I advise Iranians to also have a blameless stance in this regard.”
According to Associated Press, Ayrault said the nuclear deal is 'already bearing fruit' with economic deals and giving new impetus to Franco-Iranian exchanges between business people, students and tourists.
Ayrault, leading a politico-economic delegation arrived in Iran on Monday evening for a two-day visit.
During his two-day official visit, French foreign minister is to confer with President Hassan Rouhani, Majlis Speaker Ali Larijani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Secretary of the Supreme National Security Council Ali Shamkhani on issues of mutual interest along with regional and global developments.
Spokesman for the Foreign Ministry Bahram Qasemi says that the visit of French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault to Tehran is important as he also chairs Iran-France joint economic commission.
Tehran and Paris have witnessed ups and downs in their bilateral ties, but after the 2015 nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), a favorable situation was created for the two countries, the senior diplomat noted.
About the travel of Ayrault to Tehran that started on Monday evening, Qasemi said he is visiting Tehran at the head of a 60-member delegation.
About the two sides’ political ties, Qasemi said Iran and France can hold major talks on the issues of Syria, Yemen, Lebanon and Iraq as the two enjoy quite the same stance on those areas.
