Tehran. Ali Akbar Salehi, head of Iran’s nuclear agency, said on Monday that the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran and the world’s powers is facing a crisis due to the unilateral separation of the US, But it is still worth saving. Addressing delegates at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) conference held in Vienna, he said that the alleged Joint Integrated Action Plan (JCPOA) has been disrupted after US President Donald Trump separated the US from the agreement in 2018.

It is noteworthy that the agreement promises to give Iran an economic boost by limiting the nuclear program. The remaining powers after the departure of America – France, Britain, Russia, China and Germany – are struggling to escape the re-enforced US embargo. Iran is ignoring the limits of enrichment of uranium etc. in the agreement to pressure other countries. Addressing via video conference, Salehi said, “It is very important that those countries find a way to solve the problem that has arisen due to the unlawful withdrawal of the US agreement.” “There is still a broad consensus among the international community that the JCPOA should be saved,” he said.
