“Iran will return to its JCOPA obligations [only] after the US lifts all of its sanctions in action and not in words or on paper, and once the sanction relief is verified by Iran,” Ayatollah Khamenei said, referring by abbreviation to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the official name of the landmark nuclear agreement that Iran signed with the P5+1 group of states — the US, the UK, France, Russia, and China plus Germany — in Vienna in 2015.
Ayatollah Khamenei made the remarks in Tehran on Sunday during a meeting with commanders, pilots, and staff members of the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF).
The meeting was held on the anniversary of a historic development that came only a few days before the 1979 victory of Iran’s Islamic Revolution that deposed the former US-backed Pahlavi regime. The event saw Homafaran, Pahlavi’s air force officers, breaking away from the monarchical regime and pledging allegiance to the late founder of the Islamic Republic, Imam Khomeini.
