Speaking upon his arrival in New York, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said it is crystal clear that Americans had left the negotiation table. reports citing IRNA that stressing the fact that conditions for returning to negotiation table are clear, he said the negotiation table belongs to those members of the JCPOA who honor their commitments.

US cannot continue with "Economic Terrorism" or what President Trump says economic war against Iran and at the same time request for sitting at negotiations table, Zarif noted.

Reacting to US recent choice to sanction Central Bank of Iran (CBI) and Sovereign Fund for Development of Iran, he said it indicates the US desperation.

Americans imposed any sanctions that they could do against Iran, Zarif said adding that they sanctioned CBI which had earlier been blacklisted now under a new topic.

It is not only the violation of the JCPOA commitments but also all international principles requiring immunity of the central banks of the sovereign states, Zarif reiterated.

Iran gave 15 months moratorium to West for preserving the JCPOA, he said noting that the first step was implemented 12 months after US withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

Zarif underlined the fact that reaching a solution will not be possible if you want to get permission from the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Department of Treasury.
