Russian representative to UN reacts to Iran’s 3rd step of scaling back JCPOA commitments

MNA – Permanent Representative of the Russian Federation to the United Nations Mikhail Ivanovich Ulyanov reacted to Iran’s latest move in further reducing JCPOA commitments in a tweet on Saturday.

“Decision of #Iran to use more advanced centrifuges shouldn’t be over-dramatized,” he wrote.

“Yes, it’s another deviation from #JCPOA, but new activities will remain verifiable by #IAEA and reversible. No proliferation threat,” he added.

“Just a strong signal that balance within the JCPOA must be restored,” he wrote.

In the face of lack of action by the other parties to safeguard Iran’s legitimate rights stipulated in the deal, on May 8, the anniversary of the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal (JCPOA), Iran announced that it was partially discontinuing its obligations under the JCPOA and urged nuclear deal remaining signatories – China, France, Germany, Russia and the United Kingdom – to shield Tehran from Washington’s sanctions.

Tehran says its countermeasures fit within its rights under paragraphs 26 and 36 of the nuclear deal, and that it will reverse the measures once its demands are met.

As a first step, Iran increased its enriched uranium stockpile to a level above the 300 kilograms set by the JCPOA. In the second step, Tehran began enriching uranium to purity rates beyond the JCPOA-limit of 3.76 percent.

The Iranian President said on Wednesday night that the country will expand its nuclear research and development as the third step to scale back on its JCPOA obligations.

Details of the third step was announced by the AEOI spokesman during a press conference on Saturday.
