Iran Parliament Speaker: Tehran Will Continue Enrichment in Line With JCPOA
May 07, 2019, 01:09
The US intensified its pressures against the Iranian nation recently by refusing to reissue sanctions waivers on Iranian oil sales followed by a Friday announcement that it would try to force Iran to stop nuclear enrichment in a blatant violation of the nuclear deal.
Parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani says Iran will continue to enrich uranium in accordance with its nuclear accord with several world powers regardless of moves by the United States to put a stop to it.
The United States under President Donald Trump has ramped up pressure on the Iranian government as it seeks to end what it calls Tehran's "malign" activities in the region. "Together, we emphasise our continued commitment to the JCPoA, a crucial element of the global nuclear non-proliferation regime and essential for our national and shared European security".
The U.S. State Department said on Friday that it has made a decision to extend sanction waivers on Iran's civil nuclear projects for 90 days.
Washington re-imposed anti-Iranian sanctions in November 2018 shortly after Trump took a decision on the United States' unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA, also known as Iran nuclear deal. Highly enriched uranium can be used to fuel a nuclear weapon.
One of the two waivers allowed Iran to store excess heavy water produced in the uranium enrichment process in Oman. "Therefore we will carry on with enrichment activity", the semi-official news agency ISNA reported.
The European Union (EU) and the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany in a joint statement on Saturday expressed their grave concern over the US' new sanctions against Iran's oil trade and peaceful nuclear projects.
In its 14 reports, the International Atomic Energy Agency concluded that Iran has abided by the JCPOA, contrary to the views of the Trump administration.
The Trump administration pulled out of the nuclear accord a year ago and instead vowed "maximum pressure" aimed at curbing the regional role of Iran, an arch-rival of USA allies Saudi Arabia and Israel.
