Iran Struggles To Protect Country's Rights In Its Nuclear Program - Spokesperson

(MENAFN- Trend News Agency) BAKU, Azerbaijan, July 8. The Iranian government is trying to diplomatically protect the country's rights in its nuclear program, the spokesperson for Iran's Foreign Ministry, Nasser Kanaani said at a press conference held in Tehran on July 8, Trend reports.

He claims that diplomacy led to the signing of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between Iran and the P5+1. From this premise, the government has and will continue to direct all of its resources toward protecting the nation's interests.

Commenting on the possible meeting between Iran and the US in Oman on the nuclear issue, the Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman noted that Iran is exchanging information in various forms through diplomatic channels. Several indirect negotiations have been held between Iran and the US, the details of which will be disclosed as necessary.

To note, the Comprehensive Plan of Joint Action on Iran's nuclear program was implemented between Iran and the P5+1 group (the United States, Russia, China, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany) in January 2016. In May 2018, the US announced its withdrawal from the plan and imposed sanctions on Iran in November of the same year. Iran has announced that there will be no restrictions on the Iran nuclear deal in 2020.

Meanwhile, in late 2020, the Iranian parliament adopted a strategic plan to counter the sanctions, citing the non-fulfillment of the JCPOA signed between Iran and six countries and the imposition of sanctions on Iran.

Based on the decision of the Iranian parliament, as of February 23, Iran stopped the implementation of additional measures and an additional protocol included in the nuclear deal. As a consequence, the monitoring mechanism of the IAEA was reduced by 20–30 percent.
