“From May 22 and with the end of the three-month agreement, the agency will have no access to data collected by cameras inside the nuclear facilities agreed under the agreement, and cannot transfer them,” Qalibaf told the parliament Sunday.

The decision, Qalibaf said, is backed by Leader of the Islamic Revolution Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei.

IAEA says Iran enriched uranium to up to 63% purity

IAEA says Iran enriched uranium to up to 63% purityThe IAEA says samples taken from Natanz nuclear facility show Iran has enriched uranium to up to 63 percent, adding that the purity level is “consistent with the fluctuations” announced by the Islamic Republic.

Last December, Iranian lawmakers overwhelmingly voted in favor of the Strategic Action Plan to Counter Sanctions. 

The law tasked the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) with producing and storing at least 120 kilograms of enriched uranium with a 20-percent purity level every year and raising enrichment beyond 20 percent according to the country’s needs.

In February, Iran and the IAEA reached a technical understanding under which Iran agreed to keep the camera footage of its nuclear sites for three months in a goodwill gesture, waiting to see if the other parties to the nuclear deal can bring the US back into full compliance with the accord.

That deadline expired on Saturday, with the prospects of bringing Washington back to compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), as the nuclear deal is officially known, looking uncertain.

Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araqchi, who is the head of the Iranian delegation to the Vienna talks, told Japan’s NHK channel on Friday that the Islamic Republic may consider extending the deal with the IAEA on inspection of its nuclear sites.

Iran’s chief negotiator: Resumption of Additional Protocol implementation ‘predicated on sanctions lifting'

Iran’s chief negotiator: Resumption of Additional Protocol implementation ‘predicated on sanctions lifting’Iran’s chief negotiator says Tehran’s resumption of the voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol is “predicated” on the lifting of sanctions.

IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi is going to hold a news conference on Sunday afternoon.

Senior diplomats from Iran and the remaining parties to the JCPOA are in Vienna for negotiations on a potential revitalization of the deal, and an effective removal of the US sanctions imposed on the Islamic Republic.

The United States, under former president Donald Trump, left the JCPOA in May 2018 and restored the economic sanctions that the accord had lifted on Iran.

Tehran responded to the US noncompliance through taking a series of remedial measures envisaged in the nuclear deal if in case the other side did not observe its obligations.

Iran has insisted that it would observe its commitments only after the US removed all its sanctions in one step and Tehran could verify it.

(TEHRAN) JUST IN: Iran named a suspect Saturday in the attack on its Natanz nuclear facility that damaged centrifuges there, saying he had fled the country before the sabotage happened after they enriched uranium to 60% amid talks in Vienna due to continue #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.18: The attack Sunday, suspected to have been carried out by Israel, has inflamed a shadow war between the two nations. Iran has begun enriching a small amount of uranium up to 60% purity — its highest level ever — in response amid talks in Vienna aimed at saving its tattered nuclear deal with world powers:

Iran names suspect in Natanz nuclear site attack, says he fled country: ‘State television named the suspect as 43-year-old Reza Karimi. It showed a passport-style photograph of a man it identified as Karimi, saying he was born in the nearby city of Kashan, Iran’

April 17, 2021 12:37: Arab News Sources:

The report did not elaborate how Karimi would have gotten access to one of the most secure facilities in the Islamic Republic: The report also aired what appeared to be an Interpol “red notice” seeking his arrest.

The arrest notice was not immediately accessible on Interpol’s public-facing database. Interpol, based in Lyon, France, did not immediately respond to a request for comment: The TV report said “necessary actions” are underway to bring him back to Iran through legal channels, without elaborating. The supposed Interpol “red notice” listed his travel history as including Spain, the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Ethiopia, Qatar, Turkey, Uganda, Romania and another country that was illegible.
The report also showed centrifuges in a hall, as well as what appeared to be caution tape up at the Natanz facility.

(TEHRAN) JUST IN: Iran’s atomic energy organisation said on Sunday the Natanz nuclear facility was hit by a terrorist act, hours after it said an “accident” had caused a power failure there #AceNewsDesk report

#AceNewsReport – Apr.12: Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of the Iran Atomic Energy Organisation (IAEO), condemned a “futile” act, while urging the international community to “confront this anti-nuclear terrorism”, in a statement carried by state television:

Iran atomic agency says nuclear facility hit by act of ‘terrorism’ The episode came a day after the Islamic republic said it had started up advanced uranium enrichment centrifuges at the site, in a breach of its commitments under a troubled 2015 deal with world powers according to the Jordan Times

The attack was carried out by “opponents of the country’s industrial and political progress, who aim to prevent development of a thriving nuclear industry”, he said, without specifying what country or entity might be behind the alleged sabotage.

IAEO spokesman Behrouz Kamalvandi had earlier reported an accident at the enrichment facility caused by a “power failure”. No-one was injured and there was no radioactive release, the official Fars news agency reported, citing the spokesman.

Kamalvandi said there had been “an accident in part of the electrical circuit of the enrichment facility” at the Natanz complex near Tehran.

“The causes of the accident are under investigation and more details will be released later,” he added, before the later statement put out by the agency’s chief.

He did not say whether power was cut only in the enrichment facility or across other installations at the site.

Malek Chariati, spokesman for the Iranian parliament’s energy commission, took to Twitter to allege sabotage.

“This incident, coming [the day after] National Nuclear Technology Day, as Iran endeavours to press the West into lifting sanctions, is strongly suspected to be sabotage or infiltration,” Chariati said.

Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani had on Saturday inaugurated a cascade of centrifuges for enriching uranium and two test cascades at Natanz, in a ceremony broadcast by state television.

An Israeli public broadcast journalist, Amichai Stein, said on Twitter “the assessment is that the fault” at Natanz is the “result of an Israeli cyber operation”, without elaborating or providing evidence to corroborate his claim.

‘Terrorist sabotage’

Iran’s president had on Saturday also inaugurated a replacement factory at Natanz, after an explosion at a facility making advanced centrifuges there last July.

Iranian authorities likewise blamed the July incident on “sabotage” by “terrorists”, but have not released the results of their investigation into it.

The equipment inaugurated on Saturday enables quicker enrichment of uranium and in higher quantities, to levels that violate Iran’s commitments under the 2015 nuclear deal it agreed with the five permanent United Nations Security Council powers, plus Germany.

The administration of then-US president Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from this multilateral nuclear accord in 2018 and reimposed biting sanctions on Iran.

Iran later responded by progressively rolling back its own commitments under the agreement.

Trump’s successor Joe Biden has said he is prepared to return to the deal, arguing it had — until Washington’s withdrawal — been successful in dramatically scaling back Iran’s nuclear activities.

Iran’s latest move to step up uranium enrichment follows an opening round of talks in Vienna Tuesday with representatives of the remaining parties to the nuclear deal on bringing the US back into it.

The Vienna talks are focused not only on lifting the crippling economic sanctions Trump reimposed, but also on bringing Iran back into compliance.

Iran’s nemesis Israel has always been implacably opposed to the 2015 accord.

In November last year, Iran’s top nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was killed by machine gun fire while travelling on a highway outside Tehran.

Iran’s elite Revolutionary Guards said a satellite-controlled gun with “artificial intelligence” was used in the attack, which Tehran blamed on Israel.

Uranium enrichment can produce the fuel for a nuclear reactor, or in highly extended form, the fissile core of an atomic warhead. It is one of the most sensitive nuclear activities carried out by Iran.

Rouhani had again underlined at Saturday’s ceremony that Tehran’s nuclear programme is solely for “peaceful” purposes.

VIENNA: ‘ Iran Fails to Satisfy IAEA of Two Issues Related to Atomic Use of Nuclear Capability ‘

#AceNewsServices – VIENNA – October 09. /TASS/. Iran failed to propose any new practical measures to resolve the disputable issues of its nuclear program at the October 7-8 meeting in Tehran, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) said in a statement on Thursday.

“Iran did not propose any new measures during the meetings in Tehran,” the statement reads.

Iran and the IAEA have been unable to agree on two unsettled issues in an effort to allay the UN watchdog’s concerns about the possible military dimensions of the program.

During the talks, the sides discussed the fulfilment of two practical measures agreed in May concerning neutron transport calculations and high explosives detonators, the statement says.

The UN nuclear watchdog and Iran have agreed to continue negotiations on Tehran’s nuclear program, but the date has not been set yet.

“The Agency and Iran will continue discussions on these measures,” the Vienna-based UN agency said.

Western nations suspect Iran of using its nuclear research for developing atomic weapons while Iran insists its nuclear program is intended for peaceful purposes only.

` Iran is meeting the `International ‘ demands placed on it by `Six World Powers ‘ according to IAEA ‘

#AceWorldNews – Iran is meeting the international demands placed on it during a nuclear pact made with six world powers two months ago, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

However, in order to fully fulfil the six-month deal, Iran is required to complete a nuclear conversion facility, a report from the UN body stated on Thursday.

The utility in question is designed to hold down the uranium gas stockpile.

However, the matter is of minimal concern, according to the IAEA, as Iran’s commitment concerns the size of the stockpile towards the end of the deal, in late July.

The UN’s nuclear agency revealed Sunday that Iran moved towards cooperation in terms of allegations that it is designing atomic weapons.

The development could significantly impact upcoming negotiations in Vienna – due to start February 18 – between Iran and the six world powers.

Iran had earlier promised to clear up “any ambiguities” regarding its uranium enrichment program.

On Saturday, Iran resumed talks with the Vienna-based International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). In line with the framework, Iran is expected to take six practical measures by this Tuesday – including an additional IAEA visit to an unfinished heavy-water reactor at Arak and another inspection of Gachin Mine in Bandar Abbas Port in southern Iran.

Iran: “IAEA Inspectors Arrive in Tehran to Facilitate Implementation Towards Landmark Deal with Six other Powers”

#AceWorldNews says a team of inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) arrived in Tehran to facilitate implementation towards the landmark deal reached between Iran and the six world powers regarding the country’s uranium enrichment program, Reuters reports, citing the semi-official Fars news agency. The IAEA team, led by nuclear engineer Massimo Aparo, will visit the Natanz and Fordow nuclear facilities to ensure that Iran will stop enriching uranium to 20 percent and that its stockpile of enriched uranium is diluted. Under the terms of the agreement with the P5+1 – the five permanent members of the Security Council plus Germany – Iran will curtail its nuclear program in return from relief from international sanctions. The team is expected to start reporting back to the IAEA on Monday regarding its progress.

UN : ” IAEA Will Play Pivotal Role in Checking that Iran Lives up to its Commitment to Curb Disputed Nuclear Work”

#AceWorldNews says The UN nuclear agency said Friday it would cost it about 6 million euro ($8.2 million) to verify the implementation of a landmark nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers. A confidential report to member states, obtained by Reuters, said that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) needed extra money from member states to pay for most of it. The IAEA will play a pivotal role in checking that Iran lives up to its commitment to curb disputed nuclear work, in exchange for easing international sanctions.
