Pakistan laments Trump’s withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal
ISLAMABAD - Pakistan has said US President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal will undermine confidence in the value of dialogue and diplomacy in the conduct of international relations and the peaceful resolution of disputes.
“Pakistan believes that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) represents a very good example of a negotiated settlement of complex issues, through dialogue and diplomacy,” said a foreign ministry statement issued in Islamabad on Wednesday.
“We (Pakistan) had welcomed the JCPOA when it was concluded and hope that all parties would find a way for its continuation, especially when the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly verified Iran’s compliance.
“We have noted the willingness of the parties to the Agreement to work together on upholding their respective commitments as stipulated in the JCPOA, despite the US decision to withdraw from it,” the statement further said.
It said Pakistan believes that International Treaties and Agreements concluded through painstaking negotiations are sacrosanct.
“Arbitrarily rescinding such agreements will undermine confidence in the value of dialogue and diplomacy in the conduct of international relations and the peaceful resolution of disputes,” said the statement.
