JCPOA Restrictions Violated by Iranian Regime According to U.N. Watchdog
The Iranian regime seems determined to undermine the agreement made with the international community as set out in 2015 by the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). Both the representatives of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the regime appear to agree that Iran has broken the agreement and is going ahead with stockpiling enriched uranium far in excess of what had been agreed to in the JCPOA.
It seems that the Iranian regime’s priority is to build a capacity to make nuclear bombs rather than look after its own citizens in the middle of the worst pandemic the country has seen since the outbreak of Spanish Flu a hundred years ago.
UN Nuclear Watchdog: #Iran’s Regime Is Violating All JCPOA Restrictions

A confidential report to the U.N. by the IAEA has been leaked and shows that Iran now has eight times the amount of enriched uranium in its stockpile agreed in the JCPOA in 2015.
The leaked report has been confirmed by Kazem Gharib Abadi, who is an ambassador to the international organizations based in Vienna. He said that “the recent document by the IAEA confirms that Iran is implementing its earlier decision to suspend all of its commitments under the terms of the JCPOA.”
Violations of the JCPOA as confirmed by Gharib Abadi include:
- enriching uranium to 4.5%, more than set out in the agreement;
- heavy water production now at 132.6 tons;
- new centrifuges for enrichment purposes;
- 5kg of enriched uranium with a purity level of 4.5%;
- 7kg more of enriched uranium than stockpiled in March.
The violations of the JCPOA are part of a strategy employed by the regime aimed at persuading signatory countries to step up providing more “incentives,” even though the regime has itself stepped up its illegal terroristic activities in the region.
One other major concern that the IAEA has, as reported by Reuters, is that the regime has failed to allow access by IAEA representatives to sites of nuclear activity for months, causing suspicion that these sites have been used in Iran’s illegal nuclear weapons program.

This suspicion appears to be confirmed indirectly by the head of the Iranian regime’s Atomic Energy Organization, who in an interview with the state-run Fars News Agency said that “nuclear activities, as well as research and development on the nuclear fuel cycle, uranium conversion, and enrichment (including production and storage), are being carried out without any restrictions…. Enriched uranium production and stockpile are now as high as the pre -JCPOA period, heavy water storage is being carried out without any restrictions. The process of building the Arak heavy water research reactor (new design) is advancing in cooperation with foreign parties and the use of related equipment.”
The main opposition to the Iranian regime, the National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) through reports provided by the People’s Mojahedin Organization of Iran (PMOI /MEK Iran) through has made the international community aware of the intentions of the regime to build nuclear weapons capability. In fact, if it hadn’t been for the information supplied by the NCRI, the world would have already experienced a deadly combination of religious fascism and the ability to carry out state-sponsored terror, armed with nuclear bombs. The NCRI has made it clear that Iran has rich resources and has no need for nuclear power, let alone nuclear bombs. The attempt to become a nuclear power has led to the wastage of billions of dollars which could have been better spent on looking after Iranian citizens.
The regime in Iran is resorting to more and more desperate measures. It has shown itself incapable of dealing with the catastrophic Covid-19 epidemic as has been evidenced by the near 50,000 death toll in the country and the increasing levels of poverty. In response, rather than spending its huge financial resources on dealing with these critical issues, it has decided to go ahead full speed with building a nuclear bomb, which will only lead to further destabilization in the region and increased misery for the Iranian people.

The (PMOI /MEK Iran) has repeatedly called on the international community to adopt a firmer policy on nuclear development towards the mullahs’ regime and support the Iranian people’s desire for a radical change in the regime.
