MEK: Iran Nuclear Extortion
According to Reuters, days after the Iranian regime’s new president, Ebrahim Raisi, was sworn in, the United Nations atomic watchdog stated that “Iran has accelerated its enrichment of uranium to near weapons-grade.”
Advanced centrifuges to enrich to up to 60%
“In May, the International Atomic Energy Agency reported that Iran was using one cascade, or cluster, of advanced centrifuges to enrich to up to 60% at its above-ground pilot enrichment plant at Natanz. The IAEA informed member states on Tuesday that Iran was now using a second cascade for that purpose, too,” per Reuters.
“The move is the latest of many by Iran to breach the restrictions imposed by the 2015 nuclear deal, which capped the purity to which Tehran can refine uranium at 3.67 percent,” according to Reuters.
EU nuclear deal signatories have expressed “grave concern”
The government produced 3.6 grams of uranium metal at the Isfahan nuclear reactor, according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in February 2021.
While the government claims to be creating uranium metal for “civilian purposes,” European nuclear deal signatories have expressed “grave concern” and classified these operations as a “key step in the development of a nuclear weapon.”
Dictatorship has never kept its end of the nuclear deal
The Iranian dictatorship has never kept its end of the nuclear deal, which is officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action or JCPOA.
Even though the JCPOA established that the Arak heavy water facility’s core was to be deactivated and filled with cement, Ali Akbar Salehi, the head of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organization, stated in January 2019 that the site remained fully operational.
Salehi admitted that the regime misled the international world
In November, Salehi admitted that the regime misled the international world during nuclear talks. “They believed they had won the bargaining. But – although I couldn’t describe it at the time – we had a countermeasure, and while we were working on the case, they didn’t accomplish what they had planned, and we didn’t become stuck in the enrichment quagmire,” Salehi explained.
While the regime continues to pursue nuclear weapons, the European signatories to the JCPOA refuse to hold the regime accountable and put a stop to its nefarious activities. The European countries have erroneously pushed for negotiations and incentive packages for the dictatorship of the mullahs.
The US pulled out of the JCPOA in 2018
When the US pulled out of the JCPOA in 2018, alleging the regime’s hostile activities that breached the JCPOA’s “spirit,” its efforts to keep the deeply flawed agreement alive intensified.
Unfortunately, in order to keep the government in the talks, the European nations agreed to the mullahs’ nuclear extortion. While the world decried Raisi’s appointment as the regime’s president, a notorious human rights offender, the European Union sent one of its senior ambassadors to Raisi’s inauguration on August 5.
Mora’s trip to Iran was supported by Josep Borrell
Mora’s trip to Iran was supported by Josep Borrell, the EU’s External Actions Director, who stated, “It is crucial to engage diplomatically with the new administration and send direct important messages.” “As the JCPOA’s coordinator.” The E.U.’s “key priority,” according to Borrell, is to restore the JCPOA. Despite this, he has remained silent on Iran’s continuous human rights abuses.
These weak responses to the government’s new administration, which is made up of terrorists entrusted with extending the dictatorship’s life, will only embolden the regime to keep extorting nuclear resources. The dictatorship is on the verge of gaining a nuclear weapon, and any compromises would only result in a global disaster.
