Iran, IAEA urge commitment to nuclear deal by all parties

Iran, IAEA urge commitment to nuclear deal by all parties

The visit comes as US President Donald Trump, in a major confrontational stance against Iran, refused to certify the multilateral deal on Tehran's peaceful nuclear program.

A statement Sunday from President Hassan Rouhani's office quoted him as telling Yukiya Amano that Iran's adherence to the deal "has been complete and remarkable".

Delivering a speech in the Iranian parliament, Hassan Rouhani said Sunday that Tehran's missile program is in compliance with all worldwide regulations and does not violate UNSC resolution 2231, which endorses the JCPOA.

In a speech carried on nationwide television, Rouhani insisted that no global agreements prohibit the development of such non-nuclear weapons, and that Iran has a right to produce them for its own defense.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has said Tehran will stick to the agreement as long as the other signatories do, but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out, as Trump has threatened to do. Amano also added that the JCPOA is a "significant gain for verification". He made the remarks during a joint press conference with Amano in Tehran Oct. 29, Trend reports citing the state-run IRINN TV.

Amano arrived in the Iranian capital on Saturday evening to hold talks with senior officials of the country on the implantation process of the JCPOA.

Rouhani's vow to push ahead came after the US House of Representatives voted in favor of legislation last week that would hit individuals and entities assisting Iran's missile development with fresh sanctions.

Following the nuclear agreement between Iran and the major world powers in 2015, which was implemented in January 2016, Iran agreed to stop the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent level.

"The administration of a country that abandons worldwide commitments of the previous administration is not reliable", the Iranian leader said.

Mr Rouhani said: "You are disregarding past negotiations and agreements approved by the UN Security council and expect others to negotiate with you?"
