IAEA reiterates Iran commitments to JCPOA
Tehran, 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 had stayed within caps on items, including the level to which it enriches uranium and its stock of enriched uranium, Reuters reported.
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.
Meanwhile, earlier Iranian Ambassador to France Bahram Qasemi described Iran deal as the result of a successful, efficient and effective diplomacy in a complicated issue.
He further termed the JCPOA as a historic and effective achievement which was agreed by longstanding talks among UNSC member states and also with German.
Iranian deal showed that diplomacy is the art of overcoming some problems to prevent war and tension, he added.
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.
