Tehran officially suspended the implementation of part of the obligations of the Joint comprehensive action plan (JCPOA) on the nuclear program. Not paying attention to the threats of the US with 120 thousand military and other actions of the so-called hegemon.
Iran May 15, officially suspends the execution of their obligations under the Joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD). There was a resolution on the specified question. Thus, there was a response to the provocative actions of the United States. It is interesting that Washington after the statement of Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a number of steps aimed at increasing aggression.
What is the solution
On May 8, Hassan Rouhani announced the suspension of obligations under the two paragraphs of the agreement. They relate to stopping the sale of existing enriched uranium and heavy water to other countries. Now the earlier decisions have been legitimized. Tehran gives Europe 60 days to negotiate a Joint comprehensive action plan (JCPOA). Iran does not intend to withdraw from the JCPOA, but it becomes clear that there is a need for targeted discussions of the new conditions.
By the way, on April 23, the Iranian Parliament passed a law on counter-sanctions against the United States. The document obliges the Iranian administration to impose restrictive measures against Washington in response to our return to the policy of sanctions against Tehran.
The legitimization of the Iranian President’s statement took place against the backdrop of provocative actions. So, first, American journalists, citing sources reported that Washington will send 120 thousand soldiers to “surround Iran.” When the idea was ridiculed from all sides, an official statement was made by us President Donald Trump. He stressed that the media spread fakes. At the same time hinted that in case of need it is necessary to send to the region much more military as the above number will be obviously insufficiently.
“Would I do that now? Of course not. If we did this, we would send a hell of a lot more military than that number,” he explained.
By the way, even earlier it became known that the United States decided to transfer the warship USS Arlington and patriot SAM to the Middle East, fearing the possible onset of the Iranian army.
What is the deal
After the entry into force of the interim agreement on the suspension of Iran’s nuclear program (signed on November 24, 2013, by Iran and the “six” international mediators – Russia, Great Britain, China, USA, France, and Germany), the United States announced the easing of sanctions against Tehran. The easing of restrictions concerned the export of Iranian oil. In addition, restrictions were suspended for foreigners, including those carrying out transactions related to the export of Iranian petrochemical products.
In November 2014, the United States suspended sanctions against third countries – those that were associated with Iran and the purchase of petroleum products.
The main points of the transaction:
Most of Iran’s enriched uranium will be exported abroad.
Iran’s achievements in the field of nuclear weapons will be monitored.
None of the nuclear facilities in Iran will be dismantled.
The Fordo fuel enrichment plant will become a research center for nuclear physics without uranium enrichment facilities.
The IAEA will have access to all nuclear facilities in the country for a period of 20 years, which will allow the organization to ensure that the Iranian nuclear program is exclusively peaceful.
Us, EU and UN Security Council sanctions will be lifted after the conclusion of a comprehensive Treaty on Iran’s nuclear program, the signing of which is scheduled for the end of June. Some restrictive measures on the part of P5+1 will remain in effect for some time, but then will be canceled.
Us exit from the deal
In 2018, President Donald Trump announced our withdrawal from the agreement and announced additional sanctions against Iran. Trump called the country ” the main sponsor of Islamic terrorism “during his election campaign – political statements turned into actions of the administration of the new us President.
In November 2018, anti-Iranian sanctions, including a ban on the purchase of oil, were restored in full. At the same time, we authorities issued temporary permits to several countries (including China, India, Japan, South Korea, Italy, Greece, Taiwan, and Turkey) to purchase oil from Iran (valid until May 2019).
On April 22, 2019, us administration announced that it would not extend the duration of these exceptions.
