BAKU, Azerbaijan, June 15. Iran's nuclear program will not come under any pressure if the country adheres to Iran's nuclear non-proliferation agreement (NPT) and agreement with the IAEA, a member of Iran's Advisory Council wrote on X, Trend reports.

"If the US and several Western countries could do that, they would completely eliminate Iran's nuclear industry," he said.

In late 2020, the Iranian parliament adopted a strategic plan to counter the sanctions, citing the non-fulfillment of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) signed between Iran and six countries and the imposition of sanctions on Iran.

Based on the decision of the Iranian parliament, as of February 23, Iran stopped the implementation of additional measures and an additional protocol included in the nuclear deal. As a consequence, the monitoring mechanism of the IAEA was reduced by 20–30 percent.
