"Denying the Islamic Republic's compliance with the
nuclear deal, which has been endorsed by the International Atomic Energy Agency
(IAEA) and other countries, will bear nothing for the US but more scandal and
isolation in the world and the US will be turned into an unreliable and
unpredictable country which cannot have serious partners in major strategic
issues," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi said in an interview
with the Iranian media on Wednesday.
Noting that Iran expects all parties to the nuclear deal to
remain committed to their undertakings, he said, "We want Europe to warn
the US more seriously not to embark on this dangerous issue and not to move on
this path of no return because the US should account for the consequences of
this trend and method."
IAEA Director-General Yukiya Amano announced on Monday that
Iran has remained committed to its undertakings based on the 2015 nuclear deal,
stressing the ineffectiveness of political pressures on the world body's
Amano made the remarks in a meeting with Head of the Atomic
Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi at the venue of Iran's
embassy in Rome.
During the meeting, he discussed the latest political
developments related to the nuclear deal and the US administration's recent
positions, and said the IAEA has so far confirmed Iran's full compliance with
"Objective assessment of nuclear measures and
activities and the countries' loyalty to the IAEA is and will be important to
us and is the basis for the Agency's views and reports. The political
developments will leave no effect on the Agency's assessment," Amano said.
