Iran’s parliament plan to stop voluntary implementation of Additional Protocol

Tehran (IP) - Iran’s nuclear deal named Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), however, is a multilateral commitment, and with a unilateral move in this direction, one cannot expect the maximum result.

Iran PressCommentary: The Islamic Republic of Iran, despite Europe's shortcomings in fulfilling its obligations, has so far had a strategy to maintain patience. 

In this regard, the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee approved a strategic plan to lift sanctions.

Abolfazl Amouei, the spokesman for the Iranian parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Committee, said: "According to the strategic action plan to lift the sanctions, if the European parties do not comply with JCPOA obligations, Iran will voluntarily withdraw from the Additional Protocol within the next two months."

Amouei stated that according to Article 1 of the plan, 120 kg of uranium with 20% enrichment will be produced and stored in Iran annually, adding: According to Article 2, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) is obliged to produce and store 500 kg of low enriched uranium per month.

According to Article 3, the AEOI is obliged to use the new generation of IR2M and IR6 centrifuge machines.

The organization is also obliged to operate a metal uranium production plant in Isfahan.

According to this plan, AEOI is also obliged to design another 40 MW heavy water reactor with the aim of producing hospital radioisotopes, simultaneously with the optimization of the Arak heavy water reactor.

Due to the negligence of the European parties in the implementation of JCPOA, the Supreme National Security Council of the Islamic Republic of Iran, one year after the withdrawal of the United States from JCPOA, citing Paraghraph 26 and 36 of JCPOA, decided to stop Iran's voluntary actions step by step.

This decision was implemented in 5 stages and showed that Iran is determined to fully enjoy the rights set forth in JCPOA.

The Ambassador of the Islamic Republic of Iran to Russia, Kazem Jalali, recently wrote in a note entitled "JCPOA on the razor's edge" that JCPOA is based on three main pillars: "economic", "technical" and "political and legal": "The withdrawal of the United States from JCPOA on May 8, 2018, and the resumption of sanctions against Iran and the imposition of new sanctions by Washington made the implementation of this international agreement more complicated."

In fact, the US plan for Iran was a prelude to a complementary outcome. Trump's advisers made a miscalculation that they could escalate the "maximum pressure policy" with the shock of "security blows."

All these years, the Americans have tried to deprive the Islamic Republic of Iran of progress and peaceful nuclear knowledge, but they have not succeeded.

Today, nuclear science in Iran does not depend on the individuals but is institutionalized as a developed science.

The nuclear deal has never been accepted as a deterrent to Iran, but Iran's goal has been to build trust and interaction based on mutual obligations over a period of time.

Therefore, the Islamic Republic of Iran will fulfill its obligations in JCPOA as long as the opposing parties fulfill their obligations.
