MOSCOW, September 22. /TASS/. The implementation of the agreement on Iran’s nuclear program is on the right track, Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Hossein Amir-Abdollahian said on Tuesday.
"As far as the agreement is concerned, it is on the right track," he said. "It has shown that in the modern world diplomacy can prevail over war and cooperation can prevail over enmity."
A joint comprehensive action plan for the Iranian nuclear program was agreed in Vienna on July 14, 2015. Iran pledged not to produce weapons-grade plutonium, to have no more than 300 kilograms of uranium enriched to 3.67% for a period of fifteen years, and to reconfigure its nuclear facilities and use them exclusively for peaceful purposes.
The UN Security Council’s weapons embargo will remain effective for a period of five years and the ban on supplying ballistic missile technologies to Iran, for eight years. The IAEA experts will monitor Iran’s nuclear facilities for 25 years. Should any of these conditions be breached, the sanctions may be resumed. The UN Security Council endorsed this plan on July 20.
