Hujjat al-Islam Haj-Aliakbari said that the third step of Iran’s reducing of its JCPOA ‎commitments will be more fruitful than the two previous ones.‎

RNA – In his Friday prayer sermon in Tehran, Hujjat al-Islam Mohammad-Javad Haj-Aliakbari ‎pointed to Iran’s first step of reducing its nuclear commitment and added, “The decision to ‎reduce its commitments to the JCPOA came a year after the United States’ unilateral ‎withdrawal from the JCPOA and the European side’s lack of practical measures to safeguard ‎Iran’s economic interests in the face of the United States’ sanctions.”‎

‎“In the first step last May, Iran reduced some of its commitments under the JCPOA, and ‎gave a two-month window of opportunity to the European signatories to the JCPOA to fulfil ‎their commitments,” Hujjat al-Islam Haj-Aliakbari stated.‎

The second step was taken in July and Iran further reduced its commitments to the nuclear ‎deal, and gave another two-month window of opportunity to the Europeans to honour what ‎they had promised as part of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.‎

Now, the third step of reducing nuclear commitments is enforced as of today, he said, ‎adding, “the third step will be more fruitful than the previous two steps.”‎

Islamic Republic of Iran will not halt its commitments fully under the deal, rather, the country ‎will follow up its decision gradually and step by step, he added.‎

In other remarks, Hujjat al-Islam Haj-Aliakbari referred to the month of Muharram, which ‎marks the martyrdom anniversary of Imam al-Husayn and said, “The roots and basis of the ‎Islamic Revolution is based on the Husayni school, based on which, resistance, patience and ‎jihad continued.”‎

‎“According to the Husayni school, we should stand by and resist against abnormalities and ‎this resistance will lay the ground for realizing most objectives in cultural, socioeconomic and ‎political sectors.”‎
