"The Iranians say the United States' withdrawal from the nuclear deal is the Good Cop, Bad Cop game, with Europe playing the role of a good cop", he said.
"The US withdrawal from some global agreements and undermining others, coupled with efforts to weaken worldwide organizations, are examples of destructive moves so far by the US government, which have unfortunately darkened the outlook for the worldwide order", Zarif wrote.
The United States is turning into a "rogue state" by repeatedly violating worldwide law, and Iran will not negotiate with such a state, Zarif said in response to the U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo's recent call for renegotiations on Iran's 2015 global nuclear agreement.
"Obviously, the continuation of such policies can endanger the stability of the global community, turning the US into a rogue state and an worldwide outlaw", he added.
Abbas Araghchi, Iran's deputy foreign minister, was speaking in Vienna following talks convened at Tehran's request with the remaining parties to the deal - China, Russia, France, the United Kingdom and Germany. "Iranians say the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA is just a game of bad and good cops with Europe playing the role of the good cop".
Iran has said it will remain committed to the deal for the time being, pending negotiations with other signatories to the JCPOA to see if Tehran's interests would still be protected under an accord without the US.Читайте также: ‘We will not apologize:’ Homeland Security chief Nielsen defends immigration policy
The US withdrew from the landmark nuclear agreement with world powers earlier that month. "We have said that the European Union's mere political positions are not sufficient".
The diplomat suggested the Trump administration should cease treaty violations, "economic aggression" against Iran and acknowledge regional meddling.
President Donald Trump announced the USA pullout from the JCPOA last month.
He underscored the European Union's firm position on full implementation of the JCPOA, calling the JCPOA an important deal for non-proliferation of nuclear weapons which can guarantee peace and security at regional and global levels.
Araqchi said Iran is ready to help Europe find a suitable solution and with the package it is going to offer for preservation of the JCPOA.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
