AEOI Spokesman: US Says Won't Violate Nuclear Pact

Spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran Behrouz Kamalvandi said Americans have told other parties to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action on Tehran's nuclear program that extending the Iran Sanctions Act for another decade is not going to violate the nuclear deal in practice.
In an interview with Iranian television cited by Tasnim News Agency on Thursday, Kamalvandi gave more details of the most recent session of the JCPOA Joint Commission—a group tasked with monitoring commitments to the nuclear deal between Tehran and P5+1 (Russia, China, the US, Britain and France, plus Germany).
Representatives from Iran, P5+1 and the European Union gathered in Vienna on Tuesday to address Iran's complaint about a US congressional bill extending the ISA.
In December 2016, the US Senate voted 99-0 to extend the ISA for another decade.
The bill had been passed by the House of Representatives nearly unanimously in November.
The renewal of ISA took effect on December 15 with a procedural protest from US President Barack Obama who decided to let the legislation become law without his signature.
In the Vienna meeting, Kamalvandi said American officials promised all the participants that the ISA extension is not going to violate JCPOA.
In addition, the spokesman said members of the JCPOA Joint Commission have approved a plan that will see Iran receive a huge shipment of natural uranium from abroad.
AP had earlier quoted two senior diplomats as saying that the transfer foresees the delivery of nearly 130 tons of natural uranium from Russia to Iran.
UN Security Council's approval is but a formality, considering five of those powers are permanent Security Council members, they said.
