Iran's HR chief:

Iran needs to suspend nuclear obligations

Iran needs to suspend nuclear obligations
IRAN  - Secretary of Iran's High Council for Human Rights (HCHR) Mohammad Javad Larijani said given that certain obstacles are preventing comprehensive discussion on JCPOA-related issues, it would be better for Iran to suspend its commitments to the Nuclear Deal.

Speaking on a live IRIB program, Dr. Larijani explained that the issue of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was related to the country's national interests and needed to be discussed in scope beyond political inclinations though certain barriers have prevented topic-based analysis of JCPOA-related issues both during nuclear negotiations and now that the US has withdrawn from the agreement.

He noted that one obstacle had emerged since the incumbent government decided to turn the issue of JCPAO into an element of competitions during presidential elections.

Iran Human Rights Chief Larijani later stated that the Iranian Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has always picked a crystal-clear stance towards the basic idea of negotiations, and unlike what some might think, the Leader of Islamic Revolution had voiced dissatisfaction towards the method and process of negotiations and had also anticipated failures on several occasions.

Secretary General of the High Council for Human Rights of the Islamic Republic of Iran said he had never been against the nuclear negotiations though he had his own criticisms to put forward.

"US President Donald Trump believes that Iran had agreed to the JCPOA as a result of economic pressures and that if Americans have other demands, they need to exercise more pressure against Tehran," he continued.

The official said "Trump has classified US's requirements from Iran into four categories the first of which pertains to complete stoppage to the country's nuclear activities including enrichment of uranium. The other is about missiles which makes it necessary for us to create a full range of missiles domestically and also to refuse to share the technology with others."

 "The next issue relates to the region in that why Iran should be defending the Resistance front and the last topic regards domestic issues of Iran where Trump wants us to give way to secular and anti-government movements," Larijnai underlined.

"These issues indicate that the agreement can no longer be successful," he stressed.

HCHR's head pointed out that, without the need to announce our exit from the nuclear deal, Iran needs to suspend its commitments and obligations since the agreement itself is in a state of suspension.

 "Given that Trump has decided to reimpose primary and secondary sanctions against the Islamic Republic of Iran, abiding by the deal will mean undermining many of our national interests," noted the official.

Mohammad Javad Larijani reiterated that sanctions and pressures will not be limited to three European countries and will undoubtedly go beyond that.

He added that in the current circumstances, Europe does not want or cannot take any measures at all.

Iran's HR chief underlined that Donald Trump haplessly thinks that by applying more severe sanctions, Iran will agree to further negotiations due to economic pressures.

Recalling that the country's nuclear industry had suffered a heavy blow after JCPOA implementation, Larijani emphasized that, fortunately, previous losses are all reimbursable.

Later into his remarks, the official recommended that Iran must react to the US moves through suspension of commitments for a specific period of time.

Mohammad Javad Larijani, referring to the need for a revision and a complete transformation in our management system as regards the nuclear deal, offered several measures which can eliminate possible damages of sanctions; "the first step is to supply basic commodities and goods domestically. The other part regards energy resources an abundance of which already exists in the country. Yet, other issues include defense capabilities, fields of science and technology, and health, all of which can be well managed without the need to rely on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

He concluded by maintaining that there is no problem in negotiating with Europe, provided that talks cause no damage to the country's interests and as long as we continue to work through diplomacy no matter how long it might take; "we must have conversation with the world, and there is no harm in it."
