TEHRAN, Sep. 18 (Press Shia) – US President Donald Trump warns that Washington will walk away from a nuclear deal it agreed to with Iran if it deems that the UN agency monitoring the agreement is not tough enough in monitoring it.
According to the Associated Press, in a message Monday to a meeting of the International Atomic Energy Agency read by US Energy Secretary Rick Perry, Trump warned “we will not accept a weakly enforced or inadequately monitored deal.”
He made the remarks while Iran says the greatest threat to the deal is “the American administration’s overly hostile attitude.” Alluding to US assertions that the deal allows the IAEA to inspect Tehran’s military sites, Iranian nuclear chief Ali Akbar Salehi is urging the agency to “resist such unacceptable demands.”
Since the historic deal was signed in Vienna, the IAEA has repeatedly confirmed the Islamic Republic’s compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA, but some other parties, especially the US, have failed to live up to their undertakings.
Today, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) once again confirmed that Iran is fulfilling its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, addressing the 61st General Conference of the International Atomic Energy Agency in New York.
