Alwaght- China and Russia once again expressed support for Iran nuclear deal Iran made with major world powers in 2015.
Moscow and Beijing issued a joint statement on Saturday underlining their full support for the effective implementation of the United Nations Security Council approved Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (Iran deal.)
They also stressed the independent role of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in inspecting and monitoring Iran's nuclear activities.
The statement also emphasized the importance for all parties to the deal to thoroughly adhere to and fully implement their commitments under the nuclear accord.
US President Donald Trump, a long-time critic of the Iran deal, faces a May 12 deadline to decide whether to pull out of the agreement. Trump has repeatedly warned that he might ultimately terminate the agreement reached under his predecessor Barack Obama.
He said on January 12 that he wanted America's European allies to use the 120-day period before sanctions relief again came up for renewal to agree to tougher measures and new conditions; otherwise Washington would pull out of the deal.
Under the multilateral nuclear agreement, Iran undertook to put limits on its nuclear program in exchange for the removal of nuclear-related sanctions imposed against Tehran.
Other parties to the agreement have all criticized the US president's hostile views, saying the deal is sound and has proven to be functioning.
