Iranian diplomat in response to a new report by the International Atomic Energy Agency on the implementation process of the JCPOA stated that the statistics in this report are either based on IAEA estimates or within the framework of safeguard verification.

Iran PressEurope: Iran’s permanent representative to Vienna-based international organizations says a recent report by the UN nuclear agency serves to verify the Islamic Republic’s implementation of a strategic parliamentary law that has widened the scope of the country’s nuclear countermeasures.

He noted that The Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency stated in the report that the IAEA's verification and activities related to the implementation of the JCPOA have been influenced by Iran's decision to suspend the implementation of the JCPOA obligations, including the Additional Protocol.

Gharibabadi added that what the Islamic Republic of Iran has done in line with the implementation of the law officially named as a 'strategic action to lift sanctions and protect the rights of the Iranian people'. 

Iran's permanent representative to the international organizations based in Vienna further said: "This report also clearly shows the implementation of Iran's February 23 decision."

The International Atomic Energy Agency's latest report,  which was published in the international media on Monday night, states that the Agency has not had access to data collected by its surveillance equipment in Iran since 23 February 2021.

Former United States President Donald Trump on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, unilaterally withdrew from the international agreement and announced the return of nuclear sanctions, in violation of Washington's commitments under the JCPOA.

Iran fully complied with its obligations under the nuclear deal within a year of the US's illegal withdrawal from the JCPOA and gave European countries, which promised to make up for the effects of the withdrawal, a chance to live up to their commitments.

One year after the European governments failed to deliver on their promises, Tehran announced that it would gradually reduce its obligations under Articles 26 and 36 of the agreement to strike a balance between its obligations and the received rights.

The Islamic Republic of Iran has also stated that it will not accept any new conditions or demands for the United States to return to the nuclear deal (JCPOA). 219
