Tehran (ISNA) – Spokesman for Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI) Behrouz Kamalvandi said Tehran will take next steps regarding reducing nuclear commitments if other sides don't implement their commitments under Iran's nuclear deal.

"Given the recent developments, Iran's decision to reduce some nuclear commitments was made after a year of strategic patience, as a reaction to US' unilateral withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action in order to create balance between rights and commitments within JCPOA," he said.

Kamalvandi noted, "Iran is ready to return to its JCPOA commitments, if other sides implement their commitments. Otherwise, reducing the commitments will continue by Tehran".

Stressing on Iran-EU cooperation plan, concentration on nuclear safety and related projects, as well as holding three high-level seminars between Iran and EU, the official said, "Despite all obstacles, cooperation between Tehran and EU aimed at improving information exchange continues in line with implementing projects related to the JCPOA Annex III".

Describing holding legal and professional courses as a "turning point", he added, "Holding such courses in line with legal information exchange is very important, especially in solving denuclearization issue".
