Iran’s abandoning of obligations under JCPOA complicates sanctions issue -Russian Diplomat

Moscow, Aug 2 (UNI/Sputnik) Iran’s distancing from the original obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) makes the lifting of sanctions farther removed, Russia's Permanent Representative to International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov said.
"Iran is moving further away from its obligations under the original JCPOA. Perhaps there is even some irrationality in this, because if the negotiations are resolved by reaching an agreement, all these deviations from the original nuclear deal will have to be reversed. And the further Iran moves away from its original obligations, the longer it will take, which, accordingly, will affect the timing of lifting the sanctions," Ulyanov told the Russian Izvestia newspaper.
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Thursday commenting on the Iran nuclear deal that Tehran has to make the next decisions on the JCPOA as the "ball remains in Iran’s court."
