A senior Iranian official says the country will continue to scale back its commitments under the Iran nuclear deal unless the other signatories live up to their commitments.
Deputy Director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said “next steps are in the offing if the other parties fail to take action.”
He recalled that Iran’s reduction of its obligations under the Iran nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was in response to the United States’ illegal withdrawal from the agreement and aimed at “striking a balance between the rights and obligations” of the signatories.
Speaking at a ceremony in Tehran, Kamalvandi highlighted Iran-Europe cooperation with a focus on nuclear safety and relevant projects. He also referred to the holding of three high-level Iran-EU seminars.
“Despite all problems and predicaments, cooperation continues in a bid to improve cooperation and exchange information in line with the implementation of projects related to the third annex to the JCPOA,” he noted.
He also said holding specialized and legal courses will be a turning point.
“Holding such courses is of great significance as such a move is in keeping with the exchange of relevant legal information, especially with regards to the issue resolving the problem of disarmament,” he said.
