According to the statement, Iran "is subject to the world's most robust nuclear verification regime under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which is a significant verification gain".

Despite US violation of the global agreement, worldwide Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reaffirmed that Islamic Republic of Iran has fully observed all rules and regulations stipulated in the provisions of the JCPOA.

"As of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran", Yukiya Amano, director-general of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), said in a statement.

Pakistan on Wednesday called for respect to global agreements in its formal response to U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the historic Iran nuclear deal.

After Trump's decision, the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom all said they want to continue the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), even without U.S. involvement.

In July 2015, Iran, five UN Security Council permanent members (Russia, Great Britain, China, the United States and France) and Germany reached a deal on settling Tehran's nuclear problem.

Following the controversial decision, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Iran weighs plans to remain in the agreement with the other five parties, namely Russia, China, Britain, France and Germany, provided that the remaining JCPOA parties ensure its full benefits for Iran.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), known as the deal on Iran's nuclear program, was signed between Iran and six worldwide mediators (the United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, the United States, and France) on July 14, 2015.

However, many analysts said that the presentation had merely rehashed what was already known about Iran's previous activities.

Geng Shuang, a spokesman for China's Foreign Ministry, yesterday said China would remain "in close communication with all relevant parties" and remain committed to upholding and implementing the JCPOA with an "objective, impartial and responsible attitude".

Trump announced on Tuesday that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran.
