UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — Tehran is ready to return to full implementation of the nuclear deal if the other parties to the agreement keep their promises, but will continue to reduce commitments if this does not happen. This was stated on Sunday by the official representative of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (OAEI) Behrouz Kamalvandi.
“If the opposite side takes appropriate steps, then Iran is ready to return [to the agreement]. Otherwise, we will continue to reduce obligations,” Kamalvandi words are quoted on the official website of the Iranian government. He emphasized that “Tehran will continue cooperation with the EU on nuclear projects.”
The future of the Iranian nuclear deal came into question after the US unilaterally withdraws from the agreement on May 8, 2018 and Washington imposed sanctions against Iran in the field of oil exports. Exactly one year later, on May 8, 2019, Iran announced the first stage of suspension of part of the obligations under the nuclear deal (stopping the sale of enriched uranium) and gave other participants two months to return to its implementation.
On July 7, Tehran proceeded to the second stage of the suspension (announced that it would enrich uranium over 3.67%) and promised to reduce obligations every 60 days if other participants did not adhere to the agreements reached.
On September 6, Iran announced that it had embarked on the third stage of reducing obligations under the deal and refused to limit research activities on the atom.
