Валентина Матвиенко: Мы не знаем, какой будет реакция Ирана на выход США из ядерной сделки

Chairwoman of the Russian Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko commented--during the 137th assembly of the Inter-Parliamentary Union which is currently being held in St. Petersburg--on U.S. president Donald Trump’s statement concerning a possible U.S. exit from the Iran nuclear treaty.  The comments have jeopardised the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan ratified by the U.N. security council.

“The statement has everyone worried,” said Matviyenko.  They have made agreement on the Iran nuclear program, the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan, very difficult.   When the agreement was first signed it was recognised worldwide as a great victory for international diplomacy.  And this was done. Today, Iran is under stringent watch of the IAEA to ensure it is meeting the terms of the agreement.   The last check was carried out in August of this year, and the IAEA made sure that Iran was respecting all the conditions of the agreement met its obligations.  There is then no reason to doubt the effectiveness of these agreements.  Today, many European countries have voiced their thoughts on the statements coming from the U.S. First of all, the agreement is an international treaty adopted as a resolution of the U.N. security council. It cannot be unilaterally cancelled, and therefore it certainly continues to be in effect.  

“If the U.S. wants to withdraw from the agreement, then we will need to assess the consequences. In any case, this unilateral decision, which the whole world rejects, will be sharply criticised,” continued Valentina Matviyenko. “I hope that there will be no concrete moves towards a US. withdrawal from the nuclear deal. Any steps that weaken the agreement are dangerous and a cause for great concern.  We do not know how Iran’s will react. If Iran withdraws from its obligations under the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons agreement, that stands to severely undermine all other international accords ratified to date.   I do not want this to happen.
