Iran Fully Complied with Nuclear Deal before Trump Withdrawal
A State Department spokesman acknowledged that Iran had fully complied with its nuclear commitments under the nuclear deal before the Trump administration’s exit.
State Department spokesman Ned Price told a news conference Wednesday that Iran was abiding by all of its nuclear commitments before the previous Trump administration’s 2018 move to withdrow from the deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
Price added that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) reports were verifying that.
The spokesman said that Iran adhered to its obligations under the nuclear deal, and more importantly, Iranian nuclear activity was under constant IAEA inspection.
Elsewhere in the press conference, Price referred to the release of Iran’s frozen funds in South Korea and said that Washington’s consultations with South Korea in that regard were continuing.
The State Department had explicitly stated that the release of Iranian assets will take place only after consultations with the United States, the spokesman noted.
