Senior official: No pause in Iran’s nuclear activities

There has been no interruption in Iran’s nuclear activities under the JCPOA, the nuclear agreement with the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Tuesday.

(AhlulBayt News Agency) - There has been no interruption in Iran’s nuclear activities under the JCPOA, the nuclear agreement with the Group 5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain, France and Germany), Chairman of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Alaeddin Boroujerdi said on Tuesday.

He made the comments in a meeting with Tarja Cronberg, a member of the Executive Board of the European Leadership Network, held in Tehran.

Highlighting Iran’s readiness to accelerate its nuclear activities, excluding nuke-related programs, Boroujerdi said if the US government exits the JCPOA, Iran will have no more motive to honor the deal.

After a possible US withdrawal from the JCPOA, the world would realize that the Islamic Republic’s nuclear capabilities outstrip its pre-JCPOA power, the lawmaker added.

He also called on Europe to defy the “excessive demands” and violation of the multilateral nuclear agreement.

For her part, the visiting Finnish politician said Europe would keep up efforts to protect the deal, noting that survival of the JCPOA would be in the interests of all parties.

The nuclear agreement between Iran and the Group 5+1 (also known as E3+3) was reached in July 2015 and came into force in January 2016.

Ever since the deal took effect, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA in all quarterly reports, but some other parties, especially the US, have failed to live up to their undertakings.

US President Donald Trump has on various occasions called for renegotiating the JCPOA or terminating it but Iran and most other parties to the deal say the nuclear agreement is a valid multilateral international document that would not be renegotiated.
