Russia: Moscow Does Not Rule out Iran’s Pullout from Nuclear Deal
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said at a session of the Valdai international discussion club on Tuesday that Moscow does not rule out a scenario of Iran’s pullout from the nuclear deal.

"I believe that the scenario of Iran’s withdrawal from the agreement can’t be fully ruled out, if Iran does not agree with the other participants on a basis suitable for it," Ryabkov stated, TASS reported.

Moscow will fulfill its obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action for Iran’s nuclear program to the same extent as other participants, he added.

"We have already said and continue to say that we are ready to fully comply with the JCPOA as long as other participants do the same, and to the same extent," the diplomat stressed.

"I am not prepared to evaluate the position of our Iranian counterparts concerning these developments," Ryabkov said when asked about Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA, adding that "their high-ranking officials have made many statements recently, which are rather clear. We focus on these statements while assessing Iran’s approach to this issue".

Russia does not see itself as a mediator between the United States and Iran in the nuclear deal, he went on.

"We do not see ourselves as a mediator between Iran and the US," he said, adding that "we consider ourselves as one of the participants in the accord and we are going to fulfil it and are in close contact and dialogue with all the other participants".

Russian Diplomat: Military Tensions on Rise after US Exit from Iran Deal
TEHRAN (FNA)- Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said the danger that military tensions in the Middle East will mount after the US decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is growing.

"We don’t want the US pullout from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to become a prelude for a further spike in military tensions in the Middle East, although the danger of this is evident," Ryabkov stated, TASS reported.

"This danger after the US decision and what happened then is growing, according to our assessments," he noted, adding that major reasons for the US withdrawal from the JCPOA on the Iranian nuclear program are not linked to the agreement itself, but to Washington’s approach to Tehran’s policy in the Middle East.

"We believe that this occurred mainly due to the reasons, which are not tied to the JCPOA, and frankly speaking, the US representatives are not hiding this," Ryabkov said, adding that "I would like to point out that there are a lot of opportunities for resolving regional issues involving Iran".

"If the United States is interested in changes in [Iran’s] behavior, it should step up the diplomatic process," the senior Russian diplomat stressed.

Moscow considers it possible to preserve the Iran nuclear deal with sufficient political will of its participants and despite the US’ withdrawal.

"We need to determine parameters for work within the JCPOA without the US," he noted, adding that "we believe that it is possible both in theory and in practice. Much depends on the politicians’ will, chiefly in the European countries".

Maintaining the Iran nuclear deal will depend on the European’s ability to protect companies cooperating with Iran from US sanctions, he said.

According to the senior diplomat, maintaining the deal will depend on whether "the Europeans are ready to provide European economic entities with such a level of protection that would allow them to continue cooperating with Iran following the resumption of extraterritorial US sanctions".

Ryabkov pointed out that it would be possible to ensure the protection of companies cooperating with Iran.

"I think it is quite possible," he said in response to a question on the matter, adding that "It is most important that certain elements of Iran’s policy in the region, and also its missile program arouse resentment of the United States and its allies".

The Russian Foreign Ministry believes that the United States will not revise its decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear deal, he said.

"The Foreign Ministry believes the US will not change its mind. President Donald Trump will translate into life what he said on May 8," Ryabkov added.

Moscow will comply with its liabilities within framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action regarding the Iranian nuclear program to reconfigure the Fordow enrichment facility.

"Russia will comply with its obligations under the JCPOA to the full. The same concerns the reconfiguration of the Fordow enrichment facility - to the extent the other partakers will adhere to the agreement," he stressed.

Iran Warns to Restart Production of HEU (高濃縮ウラン) If EU Fails to Ensure N. Deal Merits
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran's Government Spokesman Mohammad Baqer Nobakht warned the European states that if they fail to ensure Tehran's continued merits under the nuclear deal after the US pullout, his country will start enriching uranium to 20% or even higher purity levels in operations hidden to the international inspections that have increased under the nuclear deal.

"If our interests are not materialized, we will withdraw from the nuclear deal and will enrich (uranium) to 20% degree or any level that we want out of their sight," Nobakht told reporters in Tehran on Tuesday, although he didn't explain if by his last words he meant covert enrichment hidden to IAEA monitoring or the extra international inspections that have been imposed on Iran under the nuclear deal.

He referred to the US violation and withdrawal from the nuclear deal, and reminded, "The Leader (Ayatollah Khamenei) always reminded us that the US is not trustworthy."

US President Donald Trump announced last Tuesday that the US would no longer remain part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and promised to re-impose the highest level of economic sanctions against Iran in response to Tehran's development of its nuclear program.

After Trump's declaration, the Iranian government issued a statement, calling the US withdrawal as "unlawful". The statement underlined Iran's prerequisites for continuing the deal with the five world powers after the US pullout of the agreement.

"Iran, as a country that has remained committed to its legal obligations, will pursue the US Government’s decision to withdraw from the JCPOA as provided by the mechanisms and provisions of the accord, and if the US withdrawal is not fully compensated and the full interests of the Iranian people are not met and guaranteed – as stated in the accord and as outlined by Iran’s Leader on 9 May – it will exercise its legal right to take whatever reciprocal measures it deems expedient. Other parties to the JCPOA, and especially its three European signatories, must take necessary action to safeguard the accord and to implement their commitments – which they proved incapable of fully performing even while the US was nominally a party to the deal, due to the obstructions by the Trump Administration – and to proceed from giving pledges to taking practical action without any preconditions," it said.(続く)

Minister: Iran's Oil Industry Can Thwart Sanctions
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Zangeneh underlined that Tehran is strong enough to withstand the sanctions which the US plans to re-impose on the country.

"I believe America’s withdrawal from the JCPOA would lead to no significant development with regards to Iran's exports of oil and condensate,” Zangeneh said on Thursday evening.

He reiterated that Iran’s foreign currency revenues would be maintained as envisaged in the national budget bill.

"Iran's oil industry is in a far better shape than before and can resist the sanctions that Washington plans to renew," Zangeneh said.

He reiterated that threatening Iran with sanctions against its oil industry was an issue of the past, and said, "The country had already been able to safeguard itself against such threats over the past few years."

Zangeneh's remarks came after an announcement by US President Donald Trump that he would take America out of a 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran and move towards re-imposing what he described a series of strong sanctions against the country. The sanctions would include a ban over purchasing oil from Iran as well as restrictions over investments in the country’s energy sector.
