Iran ready to retake nuclear agreement


Tehran, Nov 20 (Prensa Latina) Iran is prepared to return to the provisions of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, although it distrusts the United States, according to a report issued by the PressTV channel.

Based on statements by Said Khatibzadeh, spokesman for the Iranian Foreign Ministry, the source pointed out that Iran’s return to fulfilling all its obligations depends only on the United States.

However, Khatibzadeh stated that it is not only trust, because within what was signed in the agrrement there are details of mutual mistrust; ‘the important thing will derive from the behavior of the next US government.’

Tehran and the 5 + 1 group (United States, United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany) signed the JCPOA in 2015, but the United States abandoned it in May 2018.

A year later Iran began to cut back on its commitments with announcements to the International Atomic Energy Organization (IAEA).

Thus it began enriching uranium to a higher purity, stored more heavy water and began operating more modern and efficient centrifuges, all of which exceeded what was established in the nuclear agreement.

These measures were a response to the inaction of the three European countries on the re-imposition of punitive measures taken by the United States against Iran.
