Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said on Monday in his weekly press conference that Iran always tries to keep the hope that Europe will fulfill its commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and the UN Security Council Resolution 2231, but, doesn’t rely on Europe, APA reports citing IRNA.

The 16 months of experience with Europe shows that there is no room for hope, though Iran keeps the windows of diplomacy open, Abbas Mousavi told reporters.

It is really sad that Europe and France need to ask for permission from other countries whether or not to abide by to their commitments, he said.

He added that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action has been endorsed by the United Nations Security Council 2231, but even for that they have to ask for permission.

He said that he doesn’t know at what stage is the permission, adding that Iran is waiting for Europe's measures while the consultations continue. It is not Iran's problem whether or not Europe gets permission from the US President Donald Trump.

He said that if things go on like this, Iran will take the fourth step of reducing commitments to the JCPOA on schedule.
