Tehran Officially Halts Some Nuclear Deal Commitments
By Staff, Agencies
Iran announced on Wednesday the suspension of certain commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal, also known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], earlier this month, stating that the other signatories have a 60-day period to fulfil their obligations amid the US sanctions against the country.
Tehran officially halted some of the nuclear deal's commitments following an order from the country's national Security Council, ISNA reported on Wednesday, citing an anonymous official in the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced the suspension of certain obligations under the deal concerning reserves of enriched uranium and heavy water precisely one year after his American counterpart announced that Washington was leaving the JCPOA and reinstating sanctions against the Islamic Republic, citing the Iranian nuclear program as a pretext for the decision.
Commenting on Tehran's move, Moscow stated that Iran had made the commitments voluntarily and could halt them if other signatories to the deal fail to comply with the accord.
