Iran to reverse nuclear steps when E3 abide by their obligations under JCPOA

TEHRAN, Nov. 05 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has said Iran's nuclear commitment cuts are a response to "the US Economic Terrorism and blackmail"

"Our response to US #EconomicTerrorism & blackmail is opposite of what @realDonaldTrump was led to believe. Our 4th step to suspend a #JCPOA provision is foreseen in Para 36 as remedy to US+E3 violations. Easy solution for E3/EU: Abide by your obligations & we'll reverse course," the top Iranian diplomat wrote in a tweet on Tuesday evening hours after the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani ordered the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) to start gas injection into UF6 centrifuges at the Fordow enrichment facility tomorrow under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) as the 4th nuclear step towards reducing JCPOA commitments.

It is noteworthy that Iran’s fourth 60-day ultimatum to remaining parties to the nuclear deal to live up to their own commitments to the JCPOA ended today while they did not take any practical steps to meet Iran’s demands.

Iran demands European countries make up for its losses after the US withdrawal from the accord and help Iran with its oil sales and banking relations.

Tehran says its countermeasures fit within its rights under paragraphs 26 and 36 of the nuclear deal, and that it will reverse the measures once its demands are met.

As a first step, Iran increased its enriched uranium stockpile to a level above the 300 kilograms set by the JCPOA.

In the second step, Tehran began enriching uranium to purity rates beyond the JCPOA-limit of 3.76 percent.

Furthermore, Tehran lifted all restrictions on nuclear research and development and announced it would use advanced centrifuges as its third step. Each time Iran gives a 60-day deadline to the other parties before taking its next step.
