"The seriousness of current events calls for convening a meeting of the Joint Commission as the JPCOA stipulates. In [the commission], the parties to the agreement, including Iran, might figure out how to normalize the situation, to join efforts in working out a roadmap in order to guarantee preservation of the deal which is of particular importance in the context of regional and global security," the ministry said in a commentary.

Nevertheless, Moscow "has accepted with understanding" Tehran’s decision.
