TEHRAN, April 20, YJC - Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad-Javad Zarif reiterated that the US has to fulfill its commitments to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
TEHRAN, Young Journalists Club (YJC) - "Worn-out US accusations can’t mask its admission of Iran’s compliance w / JCPOA, obligating US to change course &fulfill its own commitments,” Zarif twitted.
Earlier in March, Zarif warn that Tehran is ready to restore its nuclear activities to the level it was before the 2015 deal with the P5+1 states, including the US, should Washington fail to keep its end of the nuclear bargain.
Speaking to reporters in the central Iranian city of Esfahan, Zarif underscored Iran’s determination to abide by its commitments under the nuclear accord, officially called the JCPOA.
Iran "is fully prepared to return to the pre-JCPOA situation or even [to conditions] more robust than that if the US reneges on its promises to the extent that the JCPOA’s continuation harms our national interests,” Zarif pointed out.
The foreign minister further said that Iranian nuclear scientists have managed to put into operation "the country’s most advanced centrifuge” over the past two months, adding, "At present, we possess the know-how to manufacture and use centrifuges with [an enrichment] capacity 20 times more than that of previous centrifuges.”
