Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations said that Iran acts in accordance with the threats facing JCPOA and the UN resolution, one would be a return to the former design of Arak reactor.

Iran Press/America: In an interview with the Washington Arms Control Association on Friday night, Majid Takht-e Ravanchi in response to the question of what Iran's goal is in reducing its obligations and whether it will take new steps in the future, said: "Depending on the extent to which the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and Resolution 2231 are threatened, Tehran's actions will be commensurate with what is happening to JCPOA and Resolution 2231."

Iran's permanent representative to the United Nations said that we are discussing the Arak nuclear facility with our partners, and added: "If Iran fails to develop this part of the nuclear facility, it will return to its original design, which is an indigenous construction."

The United States withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) two years ago, without regard to UN Security Council Resolution 2231.

In a new legal interpretation, the US claims that according to the provisions of this resolution, it is still one of the participants in the JCPOA; and in this context, US has the right to use the mechanisms mentioned in this agreement, including the trigger mechanism for the return of sanctions against Iran.

Russia, China, France, the UK, and Germany have opposed the US request.
