Speaking on Wednesday in a meeting with the Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurz in Vienna, Dr Hassan Rouhani said: “Good agreements and contracts have been signed between Iran and Austria and deepened Tehran-Vienna economic relations”.

On agreement to cooperation in the field of energy, he added: “It is important that the government of Austria support its companies’ business in Iran. The unlawful action of the US administration in withdrawing from the nuclear deal mustn’t lay the groundwork for ignoring the rights of nations in bilateral or multilateral relations”.

“The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is the achievement by all of us and the global community. This agreement is beneficial for economy, stability and security of the region and the world and a model for resolving complicated issues through dialogue,” added the President.

Dr Rouhani also said that the nuclear deal was the result of 12 years of tough negotiations and its invalidation means the end of diplomacy, adding: “Currently, we are waiting for European countries’ package on how to save the deal”.

“If EU can fill in for US commitments made in the deal, Iran will stay in it. Resolution 2231 of the United Nations Security Council, as the backing document, emphasises that none of signatories of the JCPOA should do anything against the provisions of the agreement,” added Rouhani.

The President of the Islamic Republic of Iran also said: “Americans claiming that they will reduce Iran’s oil export to zero is mindless, indicating that they haven’t thought about its consequences. Iranian nation has always proved that they will firmly resist any threat to their national interests”.

At the same meeting, Chancellor of Austria Sebastian Kurz described Dr Rouhani’s visit to Vienna as a good opportunity to hold dialogue on bilateral, regional and global ties and said: “EU still supports the nuclear deal”.
