Iran Serious about Reducing JCPOA Commitments: MP

A senior Iranian lawmaker underlined the country’s determination to scale back commitments to the 2015 nuclear deal, saying such a phased reduction will go on as long as the European signatories to the JCPOA refuse to carry out their part of the deal.

In an interview with Tasnim, Chairman of the Iranian Parliament’s Nuclear Committee Mohammad Ebrahim Rezaei reminded the EU and the US that Iran is determined to reduce its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

He also emphasized that Iran’s upcoming step to scale back the JCPOA commitments, like the two previous steps, has been enshrined in the nuclear deal and was the least Iran could do to protect its rights vis-à-vis the European excessive demands and the US breach of the accord.

“As long as the Europeans do not honor their commitments, the process of reducing Iran’s JCPOA commitments must continue because it would not be logical and rational to fulfill commitments under the current conditions,” the MP added.

His comments came a week after Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei said Iran will continue to scale back the JCPOA commitments until it gets the desirable results.

“Reduction of the nuclear commitments, which is a responsibility of the Atomic Energy Organization (of Iran), must continue with full seriousness and in a precise and comprehensive manner, as announced by the administration, until it achieves the appropriate result, and it will definitely yield results,” the Leader said on Wednesday.

In May 2018, US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the JCPOA.

Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the JCPOA after the US withdrawal, but the three EU parties to the deal (France, Britain, and Germany) have failed to ensure Iran’s economic interests.

The EU’s inaction forced Tehran to stop honoring certain commitments to the nuclear deal, including a rise in the stockpile of enriched uranium.

Iran maintains that the new measures are not designed to harm the JCPOA but to save the accord by creating a balance in the commitments.
