Describing the recent accusations of the West against Iran’s peaceful nuclear program as a major obstacle to the country’s progress, Mohammad Eslami added that Iran has achieved the position of nuclear progress with the research and sincere efforts of all Iranian experts.
The AEOI head said his country is determined to restore the tarnished image of the peaceful program, which may even be questioned among Iranian people themselves.
Eslami said his organization is planning to clarify the effective and useful sides of nuclear technology on people’s lives and justify its actions.
According to media reports, the European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal have recently informed some members of the United Nations about triggering the snapback mechanism to re-impose sanctions on Iran.
Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Nasser Kanaani on Monday warned the European parties to the deal that they have been informed of Tehran’s response if they take “irrational measures” in connection with the agreement.
Kanaani also said that the path of diplomacy is still open and the exchange of messages between the sides continues.
Meanwhile, Russia’s permanent representative to international organizations in Vienna said on Saturday that the Iran deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), is being dismantled by the U.S. and three other European signatories.
“It looks like the U.S. and E3 have decided to dismantle the JCPOA which was and still is the major achievement in the field of nuclear non-proliferation,” he tweeted.
“Every day they delay the resumption of the Vienna talks brings us closer to the point of no return,” Ulyanov added.
The five permanent members of the UN Security Council, plus Germany and Iran signed the JCPOA in July 2015, but former U.S. president Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from the pact in May 2018, re-imposed sanctions and added new ones.
