Iran accuses Europe of hypocrisy over N-deal

Iran accuses Europe of hypocrisy over N-deal

Iran accused European nations of hypocrisy yesterday for criticising its latest step back from a nuclear deal while failing to fulfil their commitments of relief from US sanctions.

Iran’s envoy to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in Vienna said the UN watchdog had been given access to the site “with the utmost cooperation and clarification”.

“Cooperation between Iran and the agency on this issue is still ongoing. Therefore, any attempt to prejudge and present immature assessment of the situation would be aimed at distorting the facts for political gains,” Gharib Abadi said in a statement.

Britain, France, Germany and the EU have been trying to salvage the 2015 Iran nuclear deal since the US unilaterally withdrew from it in May last year and began reimposing sanctions. A year after the US pullout from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Iran began reducing its commitments to the deal hoping to win concessions from those still party to the accord.

Iran’s latest measure came last week, when engineers began feeding uranium hexafluoride gas into mothballed enrichment centrifuges at the underground Fordow plant south of Tehran.

On Monday Britain, France, Germany and the European Union said Iran’s decision to restart activities at Fordow was “inconsistent” with a 2015 nuclear deal. “The E3/EU have fully upheld their JCPOA commitments, including sanctions-lifting as foreseen under the JCPOA,” they said. “It is now critical that Iran upholds its JCPOA commitments and works with all JCPOA participants to de-escalate tensions.” Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hit back on Tuesday, “’Fully upheld commitments under JCPOA’ YOU? Really?” he tweeted.
