Moscow called on Tehran to abstain from suspending its commitments under the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan – the international agreement on Iran’s nuclear program in 2015 – and condemned Washington’s recent sanctions against Iran.
This was stated in a statement issued on Thursday by the Russian Foreign Ministry.
The Moscow diplomatic ministry regretted the fact that Iran did not fully benefit from the economic benefits that it was expecting. At the same time, he provided Tehran with an understanding of how he had made use of the opportunity provided by points 26 and 36 of the Joint Action Plan and refused to fulfill some of his voluntary commitments for non-compliance by other States Parties.
However, the authors of the document called on Iran to refrain from taking steps to withdraw its commitments under the Action Plan, to abide by its obligations and to accelerate the implementation of projects in line with the agreement. among others, the modernization of the arak reactor.
The ministerial resolution condemned the United States for unilaterally denouncing the action plan a year ago and imposed unilateral restrictions against Iran in a “demonstrative and challenging” manner against UN Security Council Resolution 2231. In addition, it is trying to exert economic and political pressure in order to prevent other countries from complying with the BT resolution and trying to prevent other states from engaging in normal economic cooperation with Iran.
Russian diplomats estimated that Tehran had “clearly and carefully” adhered to its obligations under the Convention, as confirmed by the report of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Chief Executive Officer on the controls carried out in Iran. In the resolution, Moscow urged to accelerate the launch of the INSTEX payment special mechanism to serve Iranian businesses and indicated that it wanted to live with it.
The Russian Foreign Ministry called on the other states not to interrupt economic relations with Iran and to continue to buy energy from it. At the same time, he strongly condemned the latest US sanctions against the Iranian metallurgical sector. The document underlined the key role of the IAEA in monitoring compliance with the NPT and urged the convening of a joint committee on the Iranian nuclear issue.
Hashan Roman President said on Wednesday that Iran would suspend the implementation of two atomic bombs for 60 days. As a result, Tehran is not continuing to reduce its heavy water and enriched uranium reserves. He took the view that the Islamic Republic would renew his work on uranium enrichment after sixty days if the other participants in the contract failed to fulfill their obligations. As the Iranian leadership has said, it has informed the major powers signing the action plan. Romani said Iran was not leaving the nuclear industry and willing to negotiate further.
US President Donald Trump announced on May 8, 2018, that the United States would withdraw from the agreement, and in November he announced that Washington had resumed US sanctions against Tehran, including a ban on Iranian oil. In line with the 2015 bargain, Iran has limited its nuclear program in exchange for the withdrawal of UN sanctions imposed by the UNSC and the economic sanctions imposed unilaterally by the United States and the EU.
