EU responds on Iran's statement on boosting uranium enrichment
The European Union is studying Iran's statement that it is increasing capacities on uranium enrichment, the spokeswoman of the EU External Action Service (EEAS) Maja Kocijancic said.
"We are studying these statements and this is all we can say right now. We reaffirm our commitment to complying with the comprehensive plan for Iran's nuclear program, as long as Tehran also adheres to it," Kocijancic said at a briefing.
Earlier in the day, the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Deputy Head Behrouz Kamalvandi said that the body would inform the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) about the country's increasing capacities on uranium enrichment.
However, the official noted that Tehran's nuclear activities would remain within the framework of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), also known as Iran nuclear deal.
