US will slap sanctions on whoever purchases Iran's oil

US will slap sanctions on whoever purchases Iran's oil”

European allies who opposed the United States withdrawal have tried to help Iran circumvent U.S. sanctions and keep the deal alive, but Iran says these efforts have been insufficient so far. It can use far fewer more advanced centrifuges for research but without accumulating enriched uranium.

The United States, which pulled out of the nuclear deal previous year by President Donald Trump, is trying to force Iran to negotiate a more sweeping agreement, covering Tehran's ballistic missiles and regional behaviour, than the current accord.

"Time is of the essence", International Atomic Energy Agency Acting Director General Cornel Feruta told a news conference.

The IAEA added in its statement that the centrifuges had been installed at Iran's Natanz facility and said "all of the installed centrifuges had been prepared for testing with UF6 (uranium hexafluoride), although none of them were being tested with UF6 on 7 and 8 September 2019".

The deal only lets Iran produce enriched uranium with just over 5,000 of its first-generation IR-1 centrifuge machines.

France, Germany and Britain have tried to launch a barter trade mechanism with Iran protecting it from USA sanctions but have struggled to get it off the ground.

He said he had emphasized to Iranian officials "the importance of full and timely cooperation by Iran".

"It is important to advance our interactions and, therefore, I also stressed the need for Iran to respond promptly to Agency questions related to the completeness of Iran's safeguards declarations".

"I think that was a message very well understood", he said of his meetings with officials including Iran's foreign minister and its nuclear energy chief.

After the report, China blamed the United States for the situation, and called for world powers to stick to the 2015 deal with Tehran.

After the IAEA assessment was released on Monday, Israel's Foreign Minister Israel Katz called on the remaining signatories of the 2015 deal to follow the U.S. example by abandoning the accord and re-imposing sanctions on the Islamic Republic.

France has proposed offering Iran about $15 billion (€13.6bn) in credit lines until year-end if Tehran comes fully back into compliance with its 2015 nuclear deal, a move that hinges on Washington not blocking it, Western and Iranian sources said.

"There are confidential conversations among the partners about the specific details", Breul said.

And Americans should be asking why their country's news media organizations are being so conspicuously pro-war in their reporting on the US-Iran dispute.

He reiterated that Germany considers Iran's centrifuge plans "a step in the wrong direction".

The IAEA said on Saturday that it found uranium traces at an Iranian "atomic warehouse".

But since Iran has not yet given any to the IAEA it is hard to verify the particles' origin, and it is also not clear whether the traces are remnants of material or activities that predate the landmark 2015 deal or more recent, the diplomats say.
