Iran has warned that if European parties to the 2015 nuclear agreement fail to meet their commitments to under the deal, Tehran will further, and this time more decisively, reduce its nuclear obligations.
“The third step will be heavier than the first and second ones so it can strike a balance between the Islamic Republic’s rights and obligations in the JCPOA,” Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi told the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting News Agency.
The JCPOA stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action as the nuclear deal is officially called. Mousavi said the third round of Iran’s response has already been devised and is implementable.
Iran initiated a first round of nuclear countermeasures in May, in reaction to the United States’ withdrawal from the JCPOA a little over a year ago.
