  • UN Nuclear Watchdog: Iran-Accord Failure Would Be 'Great Loss'

Any collapse of the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and major powers would be a "great loss", the head of the United Nations atomic agency policing the accord said on Monday, alluding to a USA threat to pull out of it.

The Iranian foreign ministry on Sunday dismissed Le Drian's concerns, stressing that Tehran will "continue its defense policies independently".

Last year, Iran signed a $5 billion gas exploration deal with French energy giant Total, Tehran's biggest since the nuclear accord.

France has ballistic missiles with ranges of more than 6,000 kilometres, which can be launched from submarines, but Le Drian said Iran was risking fresh sanctions if it did not curb its missile programme, which is now limited to 2,000 kilometres.

Le Drian has insisted he is not "an emissary of Trump", but he has taken a firm line on Iran's missile programme and regional interventions that mirrors the rhetoric from Washington.

His retirement means there will be two Senate races in MS this year - the state's other senator is up for re-election in November. Bryant, however, said he wants to finish his second and final term as governor, which ends in January 2020.

The hardline Javan newspaper welcomed Le Drian with the headline: "Trump's Parisian lackey in Tehran".

Le Drian will also be pushing in his talks to have Tehran put pressure on the Syrian regime, a key ally, to end its devastating assault on the rebel enclave of Eastern Ghouta near Damascus. 'Pinning the blame on others and repeating outdated scenarios and baseless accusations against others will not help the Bahraini government resolve its problems with its citizens, ' said foreign ministry spokesman Bahram Ghasemi on the ministry's website.

Besides, Europe should not allow the United States to pose "illogical and illegal" demands concerning Iran's nuclear deal, Zarif said.

Iran has refused any re-negotiation or additional clauses, arguing that the U.S. has already failed to keep up its end of the bargain on the existing accord.

Director General of the International Atomic Energy Agency Yukiya Amano told Press-TV that Iran has been compliant with the deal - and the JCPOA's collapse would be "a great loss".

'The condition for negotiating Iran's missiles is the destruction of the nuclear weapons and long-range missiles of the United States and Europe, ' Iranian Armed Forces spokesman Masoud Jazayeri was quoted by the state news agency IRNA as saying.

In the first round of talks, Le Drian held a meeting with Ali Shamkhani, secretary of the Supreme National Security Council of Iran, the Iranian media reported without unveiling further details.

However, Zarif noted that the nuclear deal, internationally known as JCPOA, is a multilateral agreement and its fate can not be subjected to the whims of Washington.

The Iranian official called for the acceleration of implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal.
