What Was The Nuclear Agreement With Iran

By 2021-10-15 No Comments

May 8, 2019: Iran announces that it will no longer be bound by storage restrictions on enriched uranium and heavy water reserves in the JCPOA and could resume construction of its unfinished heavy water reactor in Arak and resume higher-level enrichment in the future if the other parties to the agreement do not comply with the sanctions relief. In late April, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif told state broadcaster IRIB that Iran was considering leaving the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty as one of Iran`s many decisions. August 30, 2019: The IAEA confirms that Iran continues to exceed the 300-kilogram limit of enriched uranium (equivalent to 202.8 kilograms of uranium) and the 3.67% enrichment cap set by the JCPOA, and reports that Iran has accumulated 241.6 kilograms of uranium, including 25.1 kilograms of uranium enriched to 4.5% U-235. The agency notes that Iran continues to implement the Additional Protocol and complies with IAEA inspectors. Since 2016, the IAEA has published quarterly verification and monitoring reports on Iran`s implementation of the JCPOA in accordance with UN Security Council Resolution 2231. These reports were generally consistent with Iran`s compliance with the JCPOA. [110] However, some experts fear that monitoring of compliance with the JCPOA is incomplete. Analysts at the Institute of Science and International Security criticized the IAEA reports as too sparse to dispel controversy over Iran`s compliance. [111] These analysts also claim that Iran exploited a loophole in the JCPOA to exceed twice its heavy water allocation.

[112] 26. June 2015: US Secretary of State John Kerry arrives in Vienna to continue negotiations on a nuclear deal with Iran and the P5+1. U.S. Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz joins Kerry. In August 2002, the National Council of Resistance of Iran, a Paris-based Iranian splinter group, publicly revealed the existence of two undeclared nuclear facilities, the Arak heavy water production facility and the Innatanz enrichment facility. [26] [27] In February 2003, Iranian President Mohammad Khatami acknowledged the existence of the facilities and claimed that Iran had undertaken “small enrichment experiments” to produce low-enriched uranium for nuclear power plants. [26] At the end of February, inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) visited Natanz. [27] In May 2003, Iran allowed IAEA inspectors to visit the Kalaye Electric Company, but refused to allow them to take samples.

[27] At the time of the deal, the administration of then-US President Barack Obama expressed confidence that the JCPOA would prevent Iran from secretly building a nuclear program. Iran has pledged to “exceptional and robust monitoring, verification and inspection.” May 9, 2020: U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo notes the second anniversary of the U.S. withdrawal from the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, stating that “the United States will exercise all diplomatic options to ensure the extension of the UN embargo.” The Special Majlis Commission to Review the JCPOA invited Ali Shamkhani and members of the former nuclear negotiating team, including Ali Bagheri and Fereydoon Abbasi, to comment on the agreement. [352] During the meeting, Saeed Jalili, a former chief negotiator, criticized the deal, stating that Iran`s “about 100 absolute rights” were granted to the opposing party. He considers the deal “unacceptable” because Iran is making an “extraordinary [nuclear] case by replacing `permission` with `right` under the NPT and accepting unconventional measures.” [353] He also believes that the deal crossed the red lines drawn by Iran`s Supreme Leader. His statement was criticized by Commissioners Masoud Pezeshkian and Abbas Ali Mansouri Arani. [354] At another meeting, ongoing negotiator investigators Abbas Araqchi and Majid Takht-Ravanchi defended the deal under the leadership of Javad Zarif. [355] September 17, 2015: Congress` review period ends without passing a resolution of consent or disapproval. .
