Pak analyst slams EU for inaction on JCPOA

Islamabad, May 10, IRNA - A Pakistani analyst says the European signatories of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have no moral courage to implement the treaty they have agreed upon.

Masood Abdali in his article published in Urdu daily Ummat said it is very unfortunate that after unilateral withdrawal of the US from JCPOA the European States have failed to move forward with the nuclear deal.

He said due to US withdrawal from the agreement and re-imposition of sanctions Iran was compelled to stop some of its commitments under the JCPOA as of May 8, 2019.

He added that Iran has given a 60-day time to the states parties to Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to remedy their breaches and restore Iran's interests enshrined by the international deal.

The analyst viewed that European countries have lost their credibility because of their inaction over the implementation of Iran nuclear deal.

It is strange that the whole world is blaming the United States for its action, but they could not dare to honor their commitments to a deal which they have signed themselves.

Abdali noted that even North Korean leader says that the US cannot be relied upon in making any agreement as it has already sabotaged Iran nuclear deal.
