Iran IAEA envoy questions US call for strict implementation of JCPOA

IRNA – Iran’s Resident Representative to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Reza Najafi said on Wednesday that US delegation can talk about strict implementation of the JCPOA if and only if it fully complies with its obligations under the JCPOA.

Najafi made the remarks in an address to the ongoing meeting of the IAEA Board of Governors in Vienna.

“While we continue to fulfill our undertakings, we vigilantly monitor the implementation of the commitments of the other parties under the JCPOA in order to reassure the agreement is enduring,” Najafi said.

Since the Implementation Day Iran has honored its commitment under the JCPOA and the Agency’s reports on verification and monitoring of JCPOA in Iran provides a clear testimony to such commitment, Najafi added.

He called for reciprocal and full implementation of the measures by all parties, including by E3/EU+3 as the vital basis of the JCPOA and the essential element of the agreement for its permanence.
