Iran: ‘We won’t recognise mutilated JPCOA’ — Iran nuclear chief

Head of Iran's Atomic Energy Organisation Ali Akbar Salehi said on Tuesday that Iran would be ready to deploy centrifuges for uranium enrichment in case the JPCOA were to fail, speaking at a press conference in Tehran. «We cannot have the JCPOA and at the same time witness sanctions,” said Salehi, rejecting any possibility of accepting a “mutilated” form of the JCPOA. However, he emphasised... Еще, «Iran's nuclear activities, as the country's leaders have always stressed, are peaceful.» Iran's nuclear chief made the remarks, touching upon a statement made the day before by Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei. Khamenei said that “the West's dream regarding the JCPOA will not come true, and the Iranian nation and government will not tolerate being under sanctions, while limited in the nuclear field.» Khamenei then called on the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran to make the necessary arrangements to reach production of 190,000 SWU [separative work units] in the framework provided by the JCPOA. SWUs are a measure unit of uranium enrichment capacity.
