Iran Asks US to Think Twice before Going Past Point of No Return
“Denying the Islamic Republic’s compliance with the nuclear deal, which has been endorsed by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and other countries, will bear nothing for the US but more disrepute and isolation in the world and the US will be turned into an unreliable and unpredictable country which cannot have serious partners in major strategic issues,” Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said in an interview with the Iranian media on Wednesday.
Noting that Iran expects all parties to the nuclear deal to remain committed to their undertakings, he said, “We want Europe to warn the US more seriously not to embark on this dangerous issue and not to move on this path of no return because the US should account for the consequences of this trend and method.”
IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano announced on Monday that Iran has remained committed to its undertakings based on the 2015 nuclear deal, stressing the ineffectiveness of political pressures on the world body’s assessments.
Amano made the remarks in a meeting with Head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi at the venue of Iran’s embassy in Rome.
During the meeting, he discussed the latest political developments related to the nuclear deal and the US administration’s recent positions, and said the IAEA has so far confirmed Iran’s full compliance with its undertakings.
“Objective assessment of nuclear measures and activities and the countries’ loyalty to the IAEA is and will be important to us and is the basis for the Agency’s views and reports. The political developments will leave no effect on the Agency’s assessment,” Amano said.
