EU voices concerns over Iran enrichment, nuclear deal


The European Commission on Tuesday voiced its concerns over Iran’s plan to enrich its underground Fordow nuclear facility to 20% purity, “highly significant” for maintaining the 2015 nuclear deal.

“We are deeply concerned about the measures taken by Iran. Commission spokesman Peter Steno said during a regular daily briefing that the action was in violation of Iran’s nuclear commitments and that nuclear non-proliferation would have serious implications.

“It is regrettable, but it is also very important and also that we maintain the agreement,” he said, referring to the need to settle the nuclear deal, including, “strict verification measures that are still in force Huh.”

The United Nations Comprehensive Action Plan, or JCPOA, was signed in 2015 between Iran, America, Germany, France, Britain, China and Russia. After the US withdrew from the nuclear deal in 2018, Iran began violating it, re-enforcing US sanctions against Tehran that had been lifted under the agreement.

Iran has informed the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) of its plans to increase ignorance by 20% since the 2015 nuclear deal. The country’s foreign minister Mohammad Jawad Zarif said the action was “completely reversible” if other signatures of the action fully comply with the provisions.

“We are like soldiers and our fingers are on the trigger. The commander must give command and we shoot. We are ready for this and will produce as soon as possible ”, the head of Iran’s civil nuclear energy organization told state television on Saturday.
