Salehi:

US main loser of JCPOA violation

News ID: 4053712 -
TEHRAN, Aug. 08 (MNA) – Head of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Ali Akbar Salehi has warned US of Iran’s retaliation if it violates the implementation of JCPOA.

“All options are on the table to respond to any US violation of the landmark nuclear agreement signed between Tehran and the 5+1 group of countries,” said Salehi on Tuesday, during an interview with Al Mayadeen Arabic satellite television channel.

He described Iran’s retaliation certain and imminent against US violation of JCPOA, saying “Iran would definitely ​give a proportionate response to the hostile move.”

Following the approval of JCPOA by the European Union, China, Russia and the world governments, US withdrawal from the deal will never affect its implementation, he noted.

The US must be held accountable for its violations of the JCPOA, Dr. Salehi reiterated; “Iran has no responsibility for Americans’ negligence because the International Atomic Energy Agency has reported seven times that Iran has always adhered to its commitments and promises.”

He stressed that JCPOA is a historic agreement, the results of which will be revealed over time.

Salehi also argued that the news about a dispute over the disagreements and differences over JCPOA inside Iran and among Iranian officials is only a political issue, and no more; nuclear activities are ongoing, enriching uranium, producing heavy water and the extraction of uranium mines are uninterrupted and new reactors are continuously designed in Arak facilities, in cooperation with China.

“Iran's ties with Russia are growing every day; the two countries have joint projects, including the establishment of two large new nuclear power plants in Bushehr, and Tehran-Moscow relations are long-standing, deep and broadened in the field of atomic energy,” he noted.

Salehi, rejecting Israeli regime’s claims over Iran’s nuclear program for military purposes, said it is forbidden to use chemical and biological weapons in Iran, as it is mentioned in the fatwa of the Leader of Islamic Revolution, as well.
