The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi in a televised program on Wednesday explained further steps in reducing Iran's commitments under the nuclear agreement 2015 and saying the nuclear industry has served as a source of authority.
Iran Press/Iran news: The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi in a televised program on Wednesday night said that Iran's nuclear industry has served as the source of authority and it is advancing forward in a desirable pace, the factor which he called as " the main source of concern for the Europeans", he explained that is why the West has been concentrating on stopping and slowing down Iran's nuclear activities.
Kamalvandi went on to explain that although West claims that radiopharmacy drugs are exceptionally excluded from the sanctions, however, the Americans' maximum pressure policy is contrary to the claim and due to Iran's nuclear achievements in recent years more than 1 million patients have no problem in this regard.
Referring to the desired growth of the nuclear industry in the field of energy and other fields, Kamalvandi said that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) has never disrupted the industry even in Uranium enrichment process and if there was no JCPOA at all Iran would move in the same route.
Iran's Top AEOI official also said the limitations and problems have never affected Iran's nuclear structure and the West is worried and rather angry at the indigenization and nationalization of Iran' s nuclear industry.
Kamalvandi referred to the fact that the West has been accusing Iran of making an atomic bomb, while the Islamic Republic of Iran follows the Leader' s Fatwa (Religious decree) that forbids the Atomic bomb as a forbidden act.
Kamalvandi also stressed that Iran is a Non-Proliferation Treaty (PTN) signatory and therefore does not need to make and possess nuclear weapons and the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has approved it.
However, Kamalvandi said, "We have reviewed all possible considerations for countermeasures and submitted them to the Supreme National Security Council, and the Foreign Ministry has also made suggestions, including the withdrawal from NPT, which Dr. Zarif has also referred to."
The spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran concluded that Iran is going to do so unless the other side would decide to fulfill its commitment under the nuclear deal. 205/219
