Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammed Yavad Zarif on Tuesday warned that his country will withdraw from nuclear deal sealed in 2015 between Tehran and six world powers, if any deal of the pact continues without benefit.

The Islamic Republic cannot continue in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) without receiving its economic benefits, he said.

There are difficulties in the European Union (EU) to find a seat of a special mechanism that maintains commercial ties with Iran and avoids U.S. anti-Iran sanctions, he said.

Zarif was referring to the promised EU special purpose vehicle designed to overcome the boycott decreed by President Donald Trump.

The European signatories of the JCPOA do not agree to accept this trade mechanism and some refused to be its hosts, he said.

The Iranian diplomatic head confirmed that talks are taking place on the issue.
