‘Time is of the essence’ in Iran co-operation: United Nations nuclear watchdog

‘Time is of the essence’ in Iran co-operation: United Nations nuclear watchdog”

The nuclear accord was signed between Iran and six world states - namely the US, Germany, France, Britain, Russia and China - in 2015.

Pompeo said that the Iranian regime had effectively been handed billions of dollars which has allowed Iran to build on its nuclear and ballistic missile programs.

IAEA Acting Director General Cornel Feruta, who returned from a weekend visit to Tehran, told the agency's board in Vienna on Monday that inspectors continue "to verify and monitor Iran's nuclear-related commitments" under the JCPOA. In May 2018, the United States scrapped the pact.

"We'll stop it", Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Fox News on Sunday in an interview with host Chris Wallace.

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

Wallace asked, noting Iran's recent announcement to develop "advanced centrifuges to enrich uranium faster", its third breach of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), or 2015 nuclear accords. He said USA sanctions were working.

Washington then imposed harsher sanctions on Iran's oil exports and other key industries, as well as on top officials and part of its military, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.

Iran says the mechanism has not been able to "practically" offset the impact of US sanctions on Iran's economy, not to mention the USA dismissal of French-led efforts to provide Tehran with a 15 billion-U.S. dollar economic lifeline.

"Iran won't have a nuclear weapon on our watch", Pompeo said on Sunday.

On Sept. 6, U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that there are indications that Iran is "inching" toward new talks with the United States. "Iran should straighten out because frankly, they're in a very bad position", he added.

France has been trying to convince Trump to meet with Iranian leaders, raising expectations that Tehran's nuclear program and its nuclear deal with world powers will be a major agenda item at the United Nations session. But the White House has held firm on not conducting talks with preset conditions. "We have no plans for bilateral talks with the USA and have never had", he added.
