Vice-President of the Islamic Republic of Iran Massoumah Ebtekar explained Iran's position to maintain a nuclear deal with six world’s powers. This was conveyed when she met Indonesian President Joko Widodo on Tuesday, May 2nd at the Presidential Palace Bogor, West Java. To reporters, Massoumah Ebtekar explained the importance of maintaining the agreed nuclear agreement in 2015 with five countries plus one. She said that the nuclear deal does not only involve Iran and Western countries alone, but more than that it also becomes an international agreement. According to Iran's move to defend the nuclear deal, it is an important step to ensure multilateralism in the world today. In addition, according to Massoumah Ebtekar, Iran's step in defending the nuclear deal is an important step to support the world's non-proliferation movement. She also hopes that the nuclear deal can go according to what has been agreed and implemented by Iran as a principle.
“And I also mentioned the importance the nuclear deal that Iran has made with the 5+1 and pointed the fact that this nuclear deal is not only a deal between Iran and the west, it is an international deal, it is an important step towards ensuring multilateralism in today’s world. And it is very important in terms of non-proliferation. I hope that this deal will be as Iran has complied and stood by its principles. I hope that it will proceed and continue and that can ensure that peace and security not only in our region but in the world will prevail,” Massoumah Ebtekar said.
A total of six world powers reached an agreement with Iran in a nuclear agreement in 2015. The six countries are the United States, Russia, Britain, France, Germany and China. Recently it was reported, Britain, France and Germany have proposed new sanctions for Iran related to the ballistic missile program and its role in the war in Syria. It is intended to persuade the United States to maintain a program agreement agreed with Iran in 2015. Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump has previously submitted an ultimatum to European countries that also signed the agreement to fix the deal he considers bad. If there is no change in the deal signed during the administration of President Barack Obama, then Trump will pull the United States from the Treaty of nuclear program and re-impose sanctions on Iran.
