Iran on Friday vented frustration over fresh US sanctions which it says “violate” the terms of a 2015 landmark nuclear deal, raising its concerns at a meeting with major world powers in Vienna.
“We talked in detail about the sanctions and the instances that the Americans had delayed in fulfilling their commitments, the instances where they violated the deal,” Tehran’s lead nuclear negotiator Abbas Araqchi told reporters.
“We showed one by one the instances where the American side in the last year and a half acted without good will and even acted with ill intention. US was “trying to sabotage the situation, to threaten or scare off foreign companies to invest in Iran”, Araqchi said.
The regular quarterly meeting to review the deal heard, as Washington already confirmed earlier this week, that Iran is sticking to its side of the pact with the US, Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany.
