Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson has claimed to be open to diplomacy in an effort to save the 2015 nuclear deal with the World’s Superpowers but is in fact hopeless with regards to the international community as it broke the agreement pertaining to the enrichment of Uranium.
Although Abbas Mousavi claimed he had no idea how far the enrichment went ahead, but Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei had previously suggested Iran to need about 5% uranium enrichment.
There is a lot of speculation, so we don’t know,” Mousavi answered The Associated Press. “We will see what we need.”
Furthermore, Mousavi declared that the capture of Iranian supertankers from the coast of Gibralta was indeed piracy. Although he claimed to not know where the supertankers were headed, authorities said it seemed to contain around 2 million barrels of oil
The 2015 nuclear deal set a 3.67 pc level for enrichment of Uranium, monitored by the inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency.
While Europe received a fair warning with regards to the incoming increment of Iran’s enrichment of Uranium 60 days ago, Europe has failed to respond or take action.
On the other hand, experts fear Iran’s actions could trigger open conflict with US. Preciously Trump had almost bombed Iran over Tehran in an attempt to take down US military surveillance drone. Trump warned Tehran over recent events. On Sunday Trump said “Iran better be careful” and that, “Iran’s doing a lot of bad things”.
The spokesman for Iran’s nuclear agency, Behrouz Kamalvandi, vaguely hinted at a TV interview that Iran might cross enrichment to 20 pc or more if necessary. This is a cause of worry as experts claim 20 pc is one step away from reaching weapons-grade levels of 90pc.
Mousavi also said that it appreciated the help it received from other nations to save the deal but didn’t trust anyone in the negotiation. He said “We have no hope nor trust in anyone nor any country but the door of diplomacy is open,”
He also gave a vague warning to Europe about a forthcoming 60 day deadline which will come on September 5. Mousavi said “If the remaining countries in the deal, especially the Europeans, do not fulfill their commitments seriously, and not do anything more than talk, Iran’s third step will be harder, more steadfast and somehow stunning,”
