Baku, Azerbaijan, July 30
By Dalga Khatinoglu - Trend:
Deputy of Iran foreign minister says the P5+1 Group was committed to supply Iran with nuclear fuel, enriched by 20 percent.
During a speech with the members of the National Security and Foreign Policy Commission of the Parliament, Abbas Araqchi, the deputy foreign minister said that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) doesn't have any secret part.
Mentioning some crisis about the secret agreements, achieved on July 14 between Iran and P5+1 (the U.S., UK, France, Russia, China plus Germany), Araqchi who serves as Iran's top nuclear negotiator with the Sextet said that the secret agreement was agreed between International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran's Atomic Energy Organization of Iran. "That is not any deal with JCPOA," Fars news agency quoted him July 30.
Araqchi also said that the sanctions on Iran would be removed in a matter of months.
Responding a question about the possibility of the U.S. withdrawal of committing to its obligations, deputy of FM said "then, Iran can return to the pre-agreement stage in several years, with this advantage that the sanctions system has been destroyed and can't be reformed again".
He also said that some measures have been taken that investigation and inspections of IAEA from Iran's military sites wouldn't lead to revealing the country's army secrets to foreigners".
He said that during the verification process, IAEA would introduce 150 inspectors to Iran to inspect the country's nuclear activities.
Some U.S. Republicans argue that the achieved JCPOA is not enough to insure Iran's nuclear program would remain peaceful, while Iranian hardliners says the agreement has damaged Iran's rights.
