Iranian Government Continues To Violate Nuclear Deal Commitments


The Iranian regime has backtracked on its commitments to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) by refusing to allow United Nations inspectors to repair the monitoring equipment at their nuclear facilities, despite agreeing to the request two weeks prior.

According to the Director-General of the IAEA, Rafael Grossi, the regime’s decision to ban UN inspectors from the TESA Karaj centrifuge component manufacturing workshop ‘is contrary to the agreed terms of the joint statement issued on 12 September’.

Grossi traveled to Tehran in mid-September and reached an agreement with the Iranian regime to proceed with the overdue servicing of its equipment in nuclear facilities. The agreement was meant to avoid further tensions with the international community ahead of the meeting of the IAEA’s Board of Governors and create the grounds to resume negotiations over Iran’s nuclear program.”

The regime has continued to deceive the IAEA at every turn in an attempt to hide their nuclear activities. They have declined to answer questions about traces of uranium that were found at three undeclared facilities and have refused to adhere to the 2015 nuclear deal agreement to reduce their stockpile of highly enriched uranium.

This is just one of a series of recent events that have proven the Iranian regime’s unwillingness to resolve issues surrounding its nuclear program.

Earlier this month, the IAEA issued a report warning the international community of the regime’s growing stockpile of highly enriched uranium, as well as their lack of cooperation in regards to the maintenance of the monitoring equipment at their nuclear facilities.

Grossi stated in a report in August that the inspectors he had sent to Tehran had confirmed that the regime had then produced 200 grams of 20 percent enriched uranium metal. Two months earlier, during a convention of the IAEA board of governors, he had warned that the regime’s unwillingness to answer their questions seriously affects the ability of the IAEA to provide assurance of the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear program’.

In February, IAEA inspectors confirmed that the regime had produced 3.6 grams of uranium metal at the Isfahan nuclear plant. The regime claims that it needs highly enriched uranium for civilian purposes.

European members of the 2015 nuclear deal, formerly known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) have stated their concern over the regime’s production of the uranium metal and confirmed that Iran does not need it for civilian purposes. Instead, it is a ‘key step in the development of a nuclear weapon’.

In his recent speech to the UN General Assembly, Raisi reiterated that his regime would not come under compliance with the JCPOA until all sanctions were lifted. He made no mention of his regime’s dangerous stockpile of highly enriched uranium.

The reality is that the Iranian government has been deceiving the world by hiding its nuclear program, all the while, the international community’s only method of trying to curb their activities is by granting concessions or by showing complacency.

Any agreement that does not completely close down the regime’s bomb-making, enrichment, and nuclear facilities is unacceptable from the view of the Iranian people.
