Iran must be prevented from acquiring nuclear weapons: EU Spokesperson

Iran must be prevented from acquiring nuclear weapons, said Lead Spokesperson for the External Affairs of the European Union Peter Stano in an interview on Monday with Al Arabiya.

“Iran’s decision to increase uranium enrichment has dire consequences. Iran must honor its nuclear pledges,” Stano added.

Iran said it had started enriching uranium to 20 percent purity at its Fordow facility, going well beyond the 2015 nuclear deal threshold. The move is the latest of several recent breaches of the agreement that started violating in 2019 in retaliation for Washington’s withdrawal from the agreement and the reimposition of US sanctions.

Stano added that the European Union would look at the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) report to make sure what Iran is doing exactly.

“The European Union hopes that Biden will return America to the nuclear deal, the European Union urges Iran to fulfill its nuclear obligations,” Stano added.
