 Gradual cancellation of Iran's commitments does not mean building nuclear weapons

MojNews_ Rafael Grossi, director general of the International Atomic Energy Agency, said in an interview published on Friday with the Spanish newspaper Pais: "There was a legal framework that required a number of voluntary restrictions for Iran that were part of the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan."

According to him, after former US President Donald Trump decided to withdraw from this agreement, Iran is gradually and continuously withdrawing from various obligations.

IAEA Director General said: Today we have a nuclear program that has grown significantly, much more than in 2015. This does not mean that Iran is building nuclear weapons, but no country without military development would enrich 60% [uranium] to this level.

"So, we're in a very difficult situation because Iran is not only moving forward decisively and quickly, but at the same time reducing the agency's visibility in all these areas, and that's what I think, from Among other things, it is a sensitive situation.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was signed in 2015 with Iran to overcome the country's nuclear development crisis by the five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany.

The previous president of the United States, Donald Trump, decided to withdraw from this agreement in 2018. Joe Biden, the current leader of the United States, has repeatedly expressed his desire to return Washington to the nuclear agreement with Tehran.

Russia, Britain, Germany, China, America and France have been negotiating with Iran since April last year in Vienna to restore the JCPOA to its original form.
