Russian newspaper “Nezavisimaya Gazeta” published an article by Anatoly Kumarakov about Iran’s ability to produce highly enriched uranium.
The article said: Iran is trying to accelerate the establishment of a special financial mechanism with Europe to protect its economy from US sanctions.
The Europeans promised Iran to launch an alternative bank account system, but it has not yet worked.
Unilateral adherence to the nuclear agreement is virtually meaningless for Tehran, as Iran declares its willingness to produce uranium with a higher degree of enrichment and its own capabilities.
“This is probably a purely political statement”, said Pavel Yakovlev, editor-in-chief of the Atomic Energy Gateway 2.0.
“In fact, Iran is preparing the world for the fact that if the agreement and the nuclear deal are broken, will return to the development of its nuclear program, so the declaration of Iran is only a statement that carries the form of warning directed at home and to European partners…
On the other hand, Iran doesn’t yet have the capacity to build its own reactors.
It has been built by other countries.
This is a very complex industry, and it’s an expensive operation and requires long periods of implementation.
If Iran starts implementing its stated objectives, it will do so under the supervision of the International Atomic Energy Agency.
Over the past 30 years, Iran has cooperated with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) fruitlessly, and there have been no problems.
As for the technical aspects, the head of the Iranian Atomic Energy Authority may talk about new fuel for research reactors, and its properties cannot be used for military purposes”.
In fact, the experts understand this Iranian behavior, because Iran bears great costs because of the sanctions.
In addition, attention to the Iranian situation is exaggerated.
As for the impact on Russia, for example, the Russian economy may be subject to sanctions in accordance with the harsh Iranian scenario.
The experience of the Islamic Republic of Iran, including the possibility of using a special European-Iranian mechanism to circumvent sanctions, would be beneficial to Russia in the near future, given the continued pressure from the Americans on European business sectors to stop and disrupt their cooperation with Russia Russian to Europe in what is known as the North Stream-2.
