Mubasher: The European Union (EU) will only take action on any breach by Iran to the 2015 nuclear accord, in case the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) formally identifies one, Reuters reported, citing senior officials of Germany and the bloc.
The EU’s assessment mainly relies on the IAEA reports, not merely statements, the bloc’s foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said.
Iran said on Monday that it will ramp up its uranium enrichment in 10 days, breaching thereby its 300 kilogram (kg) limit to the stockpile of uranium hexafluoride enriched to 3.67% under the internationally agreed nuclear deal.
“So far Iran has been compliant, and we expect and hope that it will continue to be,” Mogherini was quoted by Reuters.
In the same vein, Germany voiced the same approach on Iran policy.
“We will see what the International Atomic Energy Agency tells us, if there were such uranium enrichment,” German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas was quoted by Reuters.
