Iran will further cut its commitments to its 2015 international nuclear deal unless European partners protect it from US sanctions, Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said on Wednesday.

“Under current circumstances and if no action is taken (by the Europeans) we will take the next step (in cutting commitments),” Zarif said, adding that its European partners should guarantee Iran could sell its oil and collect the revenue.

“The tensions and the current problems are all due to America’s economic terrorism and the European countries’ inability in fulfilling their commitments, which counts as aiding the economic war (against Iran), he added.

Iran has said it will reduce its commitment to the nuclear accord in stages and may even withdrew from the pact unless the Europeans find ways to ensure that Tehran’s economy will be protected.
