Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said Tehran has given warnings to the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) about the future of the deal, Tasnim News Agency reported.
Speaking at his press conference in Tehran on Monday, Qassemi pointed to the European Union’s pledge to set up payment systems independent of the US and said the two sides have exchanged views about such systems and other economic areas.
The Islamic Republic has received some suggestions from the European side in this regard, he said, adding that he cannot reveal details on the suggested plans.
Problems related to banking, monetary, industrial, and technological mechanisms could be resolved, Qssemi said, adding, however, that deadlines cannot be set for such issues.
“We have warned the Europeans and we will not wait too long (for them to take steps to save the JCPOA),” Qassemi went on to say.
The European Union has vowed to counter US President Donald Trump’s renewed sanctions on Iran, including by means of a new law to shield European companies from punitive measures.
