Iran warns to quit nuclear deal if U.S. reimposes sanctions

Iran warns to quit nuclear deal if U.S. reimposes sanctions

Organised by the International Atomic Energy Agency, IAEA, in cooperation with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development's Nuclear Energy Agency, OECD NEA, the conference, which convenes every four years, is hosted by the UAE Ministry of Energy and Industry and will discuss trends, challenges and opportunities in developing peaceful nuclear energy.

The International Ministerial Conference on Nuclear Power in the 21st Century opened in Abu Dhabi on Monday, with the participation of experts and leaders in the field of peaceful nuclear energy.

"Since January 2016, the IAEA has been monitoring and verifying the nuclear-related commitments made by Iran under the JCPOA".

Mr. Amano reiterated that the JCPOA represents a clear gain from a verification point of view, and stressed the importance of full implementation by Iran of its nuclear-related commitments in order to make the JCPOA sustainable.

Rouhani, for his part, said Sunday, "We should not allow the (nuclear deal), as an important achievement, to be undermined, and we must consolidate this important global commitment with full cooperation". "Regarding the activities of our inspectors, they are discharging their responsibility without problem", Amano said.

Amano's visit comes two weeks after US President Donald Trump decided not to certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear pact and threatened to abandon it if Tehran did not correct its "shortcomings".

As Reuters previously noted, "none of the other signatories to the deal-Britain, France, Germany, Russia, China, Iran, and the European Union-have cited serious concerns, leaving the United States isolated".

Amano met with Iran's President Hassan Rouhani, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and Iran's Atomic Energy Organization chief Ali Akbar Salehi.

The administration's apparent position is also out of step with the American public's.
