Iran to scale back nuclear deal commitments - Tasnim

Speaking at the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) summit, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said: "Pressures that the U.S. administration is putting on Iran, China and other countries are aimed at dominating the entire Asia and the world".

On the first anniversary of the United States withdrawal from the nuclear deal, Iran announced that it would suspend the implementation of some of its commitments under the deal, announcing that it would stop exporting excess uranium and heavy water, setting a 60-day deadline for the five remaining parties to the deal to take practical measures towards ensuring its interests in the face of the American sanctions.

Speaking at a conference of Asian leaders in Tajikistan, Rouhani warned Tehran would "inevitably have to take more measures" if it doesn't get what it considers appropriate responses.

"Now that our utmost goodwill and strategic patience in one hand and the USA violation of law on the other hand have been proven to everyone, the Islamic Republic of Iran has made a decision to reduce its commitments based on Articles 26 and 36 of the JCPOA to restore balance to the agreement while being ready for any interaction", Rouhani said.

Rouhani's comments came as tensions between Iran and the USA continue to rise following Thursday's attacks on two oil tankers in the strategic waterway in the Gulf of Oman.

Rouhani's remarks came one day after Iran Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi denied responsibility for a pair of Thursday attacks on oil tankers in the Gulf of Oman.

"Obviously, Iran can not unilaterally remain the sole party committed to the JCPOA", Rouhani told the 5th Conference on Interaction and Confidence-Building Measures in Asia (CICA) in Tajikistan's capital Dushanbe.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said Moscow would adhere to the agreement and urged other signatories to follow suit.

Iran said in May it would start enriching uranium at a higher level, unless world powers protected its economy from US sanctions within 60 days. If other world powers sit idle and do nothing to save the nuclear accord, Iran will keep scaling back its commitments.

The United States and the International Atomic Energy Agency believe Iran had a nuclear weapons programme that it abandoned.

The meeting in Tehran between Abbas Araghchi and Helga Schmid, deputy to European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini, focused on the 2015 nuclear deal while also touching upon "regional and global issues", according to IRNA news agency.
