Iran Says EU JCPOA Political Support Not Good Enough

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif reportedly stressed this to EU energy chief Miguel Arias Canete.

Tehran's state news agency IRNA quoted him, saying "(w)ith the withdrawal of America, (Iran's) public expectations from the European Union have increased in order to maintain the deal's gains, and in the current context, the European political support for the accord is not sufficient," adding:

"The announcement of the possible withdrawal by major European companies from their cooperation with Iran is not consistent with the European Union's commitment to implementing" the JCPOA.

Tehran justifiably wants economic guarantees promised from the deal, none gotten from Washington. Obama breached its provisions straightaway. Trump's pullout threatens to undermine it entirely.
