DUSHANBE: Iran will gradually withdraw from its compliance with the nuclear deal commitments unless other signatories show “positive signals”, the Iranian president told a meeting of Russian, Chinese and other Asian leaders in Tajikistan.

Iran stopped complying in May with some commitments in a 2015 nuclear deal which was agreed with global powers. United States unilaterally withdrew from the accord On May 8, 2018 and tightened sanctions on Iran.

Tehran announced in May that it would start enriching uranium at a higher level, unless world powers protected its economy from U.S. sanctions within 60 days.

“Obviously, Iran cannot stick to this agreement unilaterally,” President Hassan Rouhani told the Conference on Interaction and Confidence Building Measures in Asia.

“It is necessary that all the sides of this agreement contribute to restoring it,” Rouhani said, adding that Iran needed to see “positive signals” from other signatories to the pact, which include Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany. (Agencies)
