President Hassan Rouhani may announce Iran’s phasic counteractions against US’ withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) in a live talk show on Wednesday, which is due to be released on TV and radio, ONA reports citing ISNA.
The anticipated plans are within the framework of articles 26 and 36 of JCPOA and Iran’s withdrawal from the nuclear deal is not considered as an option for now.
Partial and total reduction of some of Iran’s commitments and resumption of some nuclear activities, which were ceased following JCPOA, are the first steps by Iran responding to US’ withdrawal from the nuclear deal and the lack of commitment from European countries to meet their vows.
EU officials have been unofficially informed of the decision.
According to the article 26 of JCPOA, Iran has the right to totally or partially cease its commitments, if any side fails to observe its commitments.
