No New Warnings Triggered By Iranian JCPOA Measures According to IAEA

TEHRAN – Head of International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Rafael Grossi, said Iran has taken no further steps to reduce commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal after declaring last month that, Iran would abandon all of his commitments under the agreement.
Rafael Grossi said that the Islamic Republic had taken no “new” action regarding the abandonment of its commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
He further added that Iran had done nothing concrete to follow up on its announcement last month that it would end all of its commitments under the deal, he added.
Iran made the announcement as the fifth step in gradually reducing commitments in response to the unilateral withdrawal from the United States and Europe’s failure to compensate for the withdrawal despite its promises.
In comments on Wednesday, Grossi noted that Iran has continued to enrich and store uranium at the higher levels allowed by the agreement.
However, he added, these steps did not trigger a new warning. He was talking about his first official visit to Washington since he became Director General of the IAEA in December.
“Of course, they continue to enrich [uranium],” he noted.
Grossi said he had discussed Iran’s nuclear program with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Tuesday, but declined to give details.
The Iranian government announced in a statement on January 5, 2020 that the country would no longer observe any operational limitations on its nuclear industry, particularly with regard to the capacity and level of uranium enrichment, the quantity of enriched materials and research and development.
Iran has clearly stated that it will cancel its nuclear measures if its demands under the agreement are met. He indicates that these measures aim to put pressure on the European powers so that they respect their engagements vis-a-vis the policy of “maximum pressure” of the United States against the Iranian nation.
