TEHRAN, June 19 (MNA) – Iran announced on Saturday that Europe has ignored the commitment it made toward Iran’s nuclear program in February and this is why Iran may review its decision regarding its nuclear enrichment program.

Europe agreed in February to help close Iran’s nuclear file at the June meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Board of Governors and Iran agreed to extend the suspension of its nuclear enrichment program. Europe has breached its commitment therefore Iran feels no obligation to continue its suspension of nuclear enrichment, the secretary of the Supreme National Security Council (SNSC) Hassan Rowhani told reporters.

 

Rowhani said Europeans are saying that Iran’s nuclear file will be closed soon but Iran doesn’t accept these European assurances or their explanations.

 

Iran no longer feels an obligation toward the agreed suspension of its nuclear enrichment program and may re-evaluate its decision in this regard in the coming days, Rowhani said.

 

He shrugged off the European resolution against Iran’s nuclear file, saying the resolution is not obligatory.

 

Iran’s chief nuclear negotiator said Iran is committed to the Tehran Declaration but Europe should also live up to the commitments it made in the Tehran meeting.
