Iran's Zarif in Moscow as Russia moves to save nuclear deal

Mohammad Javad Zarif will visit Beijing Moscow and Brussels a spokesman said holding meetings with all of the remaining parties to the 2015 agreement

After the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear agreement Iran is intending in the form of an ultimatum demand that the European members of the security deal, said Deputy Iranian foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, reports DW with reference to the AFP news Agency. He will then go to Brussels to meet counterparts from Germany, Britain and France "about the fate of the nuclear deal", Iranian state television said.

That is part of a flurry of diplomatic activity following Tuesday's unilateral withdrawal from what U.S. President Donald Trump called "a disgusting, one-sided deal", a move accompanied by the threat of penalties against any foreign firms doing business in Iran.

Trump claimed that the deal had failed to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons or supporting terrorism in the region, which Tehran denies.

Under the deal, Iran undertakes to curb its nuclear activities and place them under total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange for removal of the sanctions imposed previously by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States over its nuclear program.

Iranian President Hassan Rohani said on May 13 that the US exit from the deal could represent an end of diplomacy as a solution to global political differences. China also committed itself to multilateralism and global agreements.

"The Europeans have between 45 and 60 days to give the necessary guarantees to safeguard Iranian interests and compensate the damages caused by the USA pullout", Icana.ir said, attributing the remarks to Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi.

According to Zarif, the goal of his trip is to get guarantees from the other participants of the nuclear deal that the interests of Iran will be protected.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the USA still wanted to work with the Europeans on a new deal.

Zarif said although America's withdrawal from the JCPOA left it imbalanced but still Iran would discuss ways of cooperation in a 4+1 format within the deal. Mohammad Ali Jafari, head of the Revolutionary Guards, said the country could not rely on the West. Khamenei said last week he was highly doubtful that Europe would provide the "real guarantees" needed for Iran to stay in the nuclear deal.
