China blames US for Iran nuclear tensions

Iran: EU failing to save nuclear deal U.S. will slap sanctions on whoever purchases Iran's oil
Bennie Garza | 11 September, 2019, 08:35

Iran defended Sunday its decision to use advanced centrifuges as IAEA acting chief Cornel Feruta urged Tehran to offer "time and active cooperation" with his inspectors.

Iran's crude oil exports were slashed by more than 80% due to re-imposed sanctions by the United States after President Donald Trump exited a year ago Iran's 2015 nuclear deal with world powers.

A centrifuge enriches uranium by spinning uranium hexafluoride gas.

In retaliation, Iran has been reducing its commitments under the deal since May, pressuring European countries to the pact to protect Tehran's interests and its economy. Feruta is to meet Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran's Foreign Minister, and Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran.

He said the facility was discovered in the records Israel says it seized from an Iranian nuclear warehouse early previous year.

That's because the Trump administration, acting on its own, foolishly pulled out unilaterally from that agreement, and has been imposing sanctions on Iran, all of which has been in violation of the agreement, and which, by violating its terms, effectively terminates the agreement.

France's Emmanuel Macron and his Russian counterpart, Vladimir Putin, discussed Iran by telephone on Sunday, speaking "in favor of uniting the efforts of all interested parties in order to preserve the JCPOA and full compliance with it", according to a statement by the Kremlin.

"Our stockpile is quickly increasing, we hope they will come to their senses", he said.

A week later, the Islamic Republic announced it had exceeded the deal's uranium enrichment level of 3.67 percent.

He added that Iran had also informed the agency it would modify lines of research centrifuges so that enriched uranium was produced, which is not allowed under the deal.

'The European Union was supposed to be the replacement of the United States but, unfortunately, they failed to act on their promises, ' Salehi said. But he described what it was seeking an answer to far more generally as questions about Iran's declaration of nuclear material and activities, since the details are confidential.

"We heard the European Union spokesperson say they would be committed to the JCPOA as long as Iran is", he said, referring to the deal by its full name, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. The IAEA has made similar calls in previous reports, in relation to promptly granting access for inspections.

Iranian officials have so far refused, saying they will not speak with the United States until the sanctions are eased.

Washington has largely dismissed Iran's threats and warned of more sanctions.

Both the IAEA and U.S. intelligence services believe Iran had a nuclear weapons programme that it ended more than a decade before the deal.

Then on July 4 an Iranian oil tanker was seized by the British territory of Gibraltar, which claimed the ship was delivering crude oil to Syria.

Trump called off air strikes against Iran at the last minute in June after the Islamic republic downed a USA drone.
