Envoy urges JCPOA members to guarantee Iran interests
London, Iranian Ambassador to the International Organizations said the remaining signatories of Iran deal should guarantee Tehran taking advantage of interests by adopting urgent and suitable acts with the mentioned ultimatum.
Speaking to reporters, Kazem Gharib Abadi described the 15th report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on verifying implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) as Iran good will to preserve multilateralism in international relations and as an evidence for complying with its commitments.
Like other 14 reports, the 15th version reiterated the fact that the IAEA has monitored and verified implementation of Iran nuclearrelated commitments since the implementation of the deal.
He added that the new IAEA report referred to Iranian Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) as regard stopping some of the commitments based on the articles 26 and 36 of the nuclear deal.
The report also mentioned resuming production of heavy water in Arak Heavy Water Reactor Facility, he noted.
Thanks to JCPOA developments, cooperation between Iran and the IAEA is in a constructive path, Iranian envoy reiterated.
It is crystal clear that the other parties have not taken any tangible and practical step in line with implementing their commitments, Gharib Abadi said, adding that this lack of commitments has endangered fate of the nuclear deal.
Elsewhere in his remarks, he stressed the fact that Iran is determined in taking recently mentioned strides.
He noted that implementing the commitments completely and honestly is a base for continuation of the JCPOA.
The International Atomic Energy Agency in its seasonal report verified the fact that Iran has not gone beyond the limitations of the nuclear deal known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said earlier that Iran will give a 60day moratorium to the states parties to Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) to remedy their breaches and restore Iran's interests enshrined by the international deal.
Iranian Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) in a statement announced that Iran has stopped some of its commitments under the JCPOA as of May 8, 2019.
Unfortunately, the new US administration changed its approach to address international issues and not only unilaterally withdrew from Iran nuclear deal, but in an unprecedented act encourages other countries to violate international commitments and threatens to impose unilateral sanctions for the implementation of UN Security Council resolutions, he noted.
