Iran threatens to exit from NPT and JCPOA
TEHRAN, Iran, Sept. 23
The head of the National Security Committee of the Iran's parliament Mojtaba Zolnouri said that the US government succeeded in including a clause in the final agreement (JCPOA) that would allow all sanctions to be re-imposed on Iran if it violates its obligations, Trend reports citing Tasnim News Agency.
“This clause allows all sanctions to be reinstated automatically, without the veto of Security Council members,” he added.
“As a result of these resolutions, all activities related to Iran's nuclear industry, including R&D programs, should be stopped,” he said.
“The transfer or export of any nuclear-related items to Iran will be banned, individuals and entities involved in Iran's missile and nuclear program will be sanctioned, and Iran's arms embargo will be re-imposed,” Zolnouri said.
He went on to say that these resolutions also call on countries around the world to inspect cargo ships to or from Iran and seize those they deem illegal.
“If the US is going to oppress and disrespect our nation under the clauses of JCPOA, we will certainly reconsider our relations with the remained members of the nuclear deal (4+1) and the International Atomic Energy Agency,” he warned.
Referring to Iran`s potential response to US actions, he noted that many plans are on the agenda including forbidding IAEA inspectors to access Iran's nuclear sites, suspension of the Additional Protocol and the withdrawal from the NPT.
