Spokesman of Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said the Western parties will be the “big loser” in case of a further delay in the termination of the sanctions on Iran.
In comments broadcast via his Instagram account on Friday night, Kamalvandi said the number of Iran’s centrifuge machines and amount of nuclear material enriched in the country are growing rapidly.
The one that would lose amid a further delay in the removal of the sanctions is not Iran, but such a delay will be detrimental to the Western parties, the spokesman warned.
Iran continues to make progress in the nuclear industry, maintains that the sanctions must be lifted, and would not trust words and slogans this time, Kamalvandi stressed.
On the latest round of the JCPOA Joint Commission in Vienna, the spokesman said Iran has made it clear that it will not take any action as long as the sanctions are not lifted in a verifiable manner.
Iran has put forward the list of its demands and around 1,600 sanctions that must be terminated, he noted.
“What is happening in this regard is that the demands of the Islamic Republic are being raised with the P4 + 1, but not directly with the United States.”
Two sessions on sanctions and technical committees have been established for these talks that they are scheduled to resume their work next Wednesday, Kamalvandi said, adding that the main committee active in the Vienna talks is the Sanctions Committee.
