In a letter to the IAEA Director General, Iran’s envoy to the agency described the 27 May U.S. decision to cancel JCPOA nuclear cooperation waivers as part of a series of U.S. actions “intended to substantially prevent Iran, other participant and the international community from implementing their commitments under the JCPOA”. “These acts by the U.S. not only continue a significant material breach of the [UN] Security Council resolution 2231, but also are in clear violation of its obligations under the relevant IAEA instruments”, the envoy asserted. He went on to caution that “while the Islamic Republic of Iran is entitled to take remedial measures, which the Agency will be duly informed at any stage of its development, the U.S. shall bear full responsibility for the consequences of its wrongful acts”.
