Iran Asks for Europe's Resistance against US Excessive Demands

Secretary of Iran's Expediency Council (EC) Mohsen Rezayee criticized the European states for the slow pace of their measures to implement the Special Purpose Vehicle (SPV) mechanism, calling on them to stand against the US excessive demands.

"Our advice is that they should take the nuclear deal seriously. Europe should stand against the US excessive demands," Rezayee said in a meeting with German Ambassador to Tehran Michael Klor-Berchtold on Tuesday.

He referred to the SPV mechanism which was promised by the Europeans to Tehran back in September, and said, "The Europeans show support in words but do nothing in action. They make a strategic mistake. Europe should not lose the opportunity for cooperation."

Rezayee said if Europe is not able to prove independence from the US, it will face a dark future.

The SPV which was promised by Iran’s key European trading partners back in September after a meeting of foreign ministers of the remaining signatories to Iran nuclear on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York after the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal is supposed to keep Iran’s financial relations with Europe alive under the US sanctions.

Europeans' honesty in dealing with Iran nuclear deal of July 14, 2015 is seriously doubted by Iranian masses that are discontent with talks with European counterparts.

In contrast with what European politicians and government are stating, many experts in Iran are suspicious of Europe's genuine commitment to the letters of the nuclear agreement of July 14, 2015, and are voicing their discontent with what they describe as Europe's strategy of killing time.

Even some commentators like Seyed Mostafa Khoshchashm are calling the Iranian government to start meaningful modifications in JCPOA undertakings, and specially remove the cap on the country's enriched uranium stockpile after the US unilateral withdrawal from the agreement; a call which is gaining momentum among the Iranians.
