Europeans seeking to prevent Iran from reducing its commitments to the JCPOA ‎

Ayatollah Tavakkol said that the Europeans are seeking to prevent Iran from decreasing its ‎commitments to the JCPOA and added, “Adherence to the logic of the resistance of the ‎Supreme Leader is considered the only solution to the economic problems.”‎
RNA – In an exclusive interview with Rasa News Agency, Ayatollah Sayyed Rahim Tavakkol, ‎‎the representative of the people of Mazandaran province in the Assembly of Experts‎, ‎referred to the disloyalty and the lack of commitment of the Europeans to their promises, ‎and said, “In regard to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), the officials must ‎act vigilantly and he also called on them to act in opposition to the operationalization ‎of any ‎of the clauses of the JPCOA by the West as much as they act in accordance their own ‎commitments and not to act at once on all of the commitments of the JCPOA and then wait ‎for the Western powers to act.”‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary‎ of Qom ‎continued, “[The Iranian] negotiating team and ‎the diplomatic system should have implemented a clause in regard to the commitments from ‎the beginning and then they should have waited for the West to act but if they also acted in ‎accordance with their obligations, they would have also taken other steps in the same ‎manner.”‎
‎ ‎
He added, “Unfortunately, the diplomatic system ‎of the country didn’t act intelligently and ‎after the signing of the JCPOA, Iran sought to fulfill the obligations of the JCPOA but the ‎Western powers were satisfied with the same text and signing of the agreement and didn’t ‎take any action.”‎

Ayatollah Tavakkol considered the bitter experience and defeat in the cause of the JCPOA as ‎a crude result, ignorance or betrayal by some officials and said, “The enemies want us to ‎unilaterally commit to the JCPOA and act on it. In other words, they want Iran to abide by ‎all its commitments to the JPCOA in the face of almost nothing.” ‎

The teacher in the Islamic Seminary of Qom said that in their pursuit of diplomacy, some ‎officials played with the honour of eighty million people in Iran and emphasized, “Some ‎officials are playing with the honour and dignity of the present and future generations of ‎Islamic Iran with their path of negotiations and compromise.” ‎

He said that Europeans will never part from the United States in pursuing the interests of ‎Iran, said, “The Europeans easily manipulate the Iranian people in order not to never part ‎‎from the United States. Our experience has shown that the Europeans ‎advocate in all areas ‎of the United States but we, as a believing and Muslim nation, must not make the same ‎mistake twice.”‎

Ayatollah Tavakkol emphasized that the Europeans were merely pursuing a therapeutic ‎approach and intend to prevent the second step to reduce Iran’s commitment to the JCPOA ‎and said, “Today, the authorities must firmly declare to the West that we don’t want to ‎commit to the JCPOA and this issue is demonstrated in our practice.”‎
‎ ‎
He considered the only way out of the economic troubles is to adhere to the logic and ‎diplomacy of the Supreme Leader of the Islamic Revolution (Ayatollah Khamenei) and said, ‎‎“We have to defend the dignity of the Iranian nation and firmly stand against Western ‎deception.”‎
