Taishan nuclear plant: China admits damage to fuel rods – BBC News
(タイシャン原発: 中国政府、燃料棒の損傷を認める)

The Chinese government has acknowledged damage to fuel rods at a nuclear power plant in the south of the country, but said no radioactivity had leaked.

China’s Ministry of Ecology and Environment said the problem was “common” with no need for concern.

The admission comes after CNN reported that the US government was assessing a reported leak at the facility.

The French energy firm which helps operate the plant in Guangdong province earlier reported a “performance issue”.

On Monday, a spokesperson for EDF Energy said a problem with fuel rods had led to the build-up of gases, which had to be released into the atmosphere.

In its report, CNN said the company had warned the US government that China’s nuclear regulator had raised limits on permissible levels of radiation outside the plant to avoid shutting it down.

But in a statement on Wednesday, China’s environment ministry said this report was not true.

The statement – its first official confirmation of the incident – said while the regulator, the National Nuclear Safety Administration (NNSA), had reviewed the use of noble gases in a reactor, this had “nothing to do with the detection of radiation outside the nuclear plant”.


An increase in radiation levels was detected in Taishan’s Unit 1 reactor, but this was within the parameters for safe operations, the ministry said.

The ministry said the increase was caused by damage to the cladding of a small number of fuel rods. Fuel rods are sealed metal tubes which hold nuclear materials used to fuel the nuclear reactor.

Of the 60,000 fuel rods in the reactor, the damaged ones accounted for “less than 0.01 percent”, the ministry said.

Its statement said “fuel-rod damage during the operation of nuclear power plants is unavoidable” and “a common phenomenon”.

The Taishan plant provides power for the Guangzhou and Shenzhen areas, both major manufacturing hubs.

China has dozens of nuclear plants and has invested billions of dollars to develop its atomic energy sector.

CNNの記事によれば、 Framatomeがアメリカ政府に対し、中国の規制当局が同原発周辺での許容最大放射線量を引き上げ、同原発の稼働を停止させる必要がないようにしたとの警告を出していた。

China nuclear plant: US assessing reported leak at facility in Taishan, Guangdong – CNNPolitics

CNNの情報提供者は、Kylie Atwood, Kristen Holmes, Yong Xiong and Shanshan Wang

(CNN) The US government has spent the past week assessing a report of a leak at a Chinese nuclear power plant, after a French company that part owns and helps operate it warned of an “imminent radiological threat,” according to US officials and documents reviewed by CNN.

The warning included an accusation that the Chinese safety authority was raising the acceptable limits for radiation detection outside the Taishan Nuclear Power Plant in Guangdong province in order to avoid having to shut it down, according to a letter from the French company to the US Department of Energy obtained by CNN.

Despite the alarming notification from Framatome, the French company, the Biden administration believes the facility is not yet at a “crisis level,” one of the sources said.

While US officials have deemed the situation does not currently pose a severe safety threat to workers at the plant or Chinese public, it is unusual that a foreign company would unilaterally reach out to the American government for help when its Chinese state-owned partner is yet to acknowledge a problem exists. The scenario could put the US in a complicated situation should the leak continue or become more severe without being fixed.

However, concern was significant enough that the National Security Council held multiple meetings last week as they monitored the situation, including two at the deputy level and another gathering at the assistant secretary level on Friday, which was led by NSC Senior Director for China Laura Rosenberger and Senior Director for Arms Control Mallory Stewart, according to US officials.

The Biden administration has discussed the situation with the French government and their own experts at the Department of Energy, sources said. The US has also been in contact with the Chinese government, US officials said, though the extent of that contact is unclear.

The US government declined to explain the assessment but officials at the NSC, State Department and the Department of Energy insisted that if there were any risk to the Chinese public, the US would be required to make it known under current treaties related to nuclear accidents.

Framatome had reached out to the US in order to obtain a waiver that would allow them to share American technical assistance in order to resolve the issue at the Chinese plant. There are only two reasons why this waiver would be granted, and one is an “imminent radiological threat,” the same verbiage used in the June 8 memo.

The memo claims the Chinese limit was increased to exceed French standards, yet it remains unclear how that compares to US limits.

“It is not surprising that the French would reach out,” according to Cheryl Rofer, a nuclear scientist who retired from Los Alamos National Laboratory in 2001. “In general, this sort of thing is not extraordinary, particularly if they think the country they are contacting has some special ability to help.”

“But China likes to project that everything is just fine, all the time,” she added.

(CNN) CNNがレビューした、アメリカ政府高官たちとその関連文書によれば、中国の原発を共同所有しその稼働を支援しているフランスの企業が「逼迫した放射線脅威」に関する警告を発し、それを受けてアメリカ政府は先週、その放射性物質漏れ報告を検討した。




だがこの警告は充分に現実的なもので、アメリカ政府高官たちによれば、アメリカの国家安全保障会議(NSC)は先週幾度も会合を開き、問題の現状を監視した。代理レベルの会合が2回、さらに金曜日には次官レベルの会議が持たれた。金曜日の会議の指揮を執ったのは、NSCの中国担当上級ディレクターであるLaura Rosenberger と軍縮担当上級ディレクターのMallory Stewartであった。





2001年にロス アラモス国営研究所を退任した核科学者Cheryl Roferによれば、「フランス企業がアメリカに働きかけてきたのは、驚くに当たらない。一般に、この種の問題は珍しいことではなく、連絡相手の国に特殊な支援能力があるとみなされている場合には、特にそうだ」

中東で核兵器保有国が増大 → 緊張が高まり、原油価格が高騰

The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) will resume in a physical format this Saturday (June 12) in Vienna, EU External Action Service said in a release, Trend reports citing IRNA.

The Joint Commission will be chaired, on behalf of EU High Representative Josep Borrell, by the Deputy Secretary General/Political Director of the European External Action Service, Enrique Mora, the release added.

The commission, as it was in the past, will be attended by representatives of China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom, and Iran, according to the EU release.

“Participants will continue their discussions in view of a possible return of the United States to the JCPOA and on how to ensure the full and effective implementation of the JCPOA.”

Participants of the JCPOA, and the US indirectly, have held five rounds of talks during the last two months to revive the nuclear deal put in danger of elimination by former US President Donald Trump

Trump ceased US participation in the deal in 2018, resuming all sanctions against Iran which were lifted by the deal. To deteriorate the situation, Trump even added hundreds of sanctions against Iran.

Joe Biden, the incumbent US President, has hinted his administration was willing to rejoin the Iran nuclear deal, but has yet to take the difficult decision to remove all sanction, as Iran demands.

Iran has said it would reverse all compliance reduction measure it has taken to reciprocate US withdrawal of the deal, in case the Washington ‘verifiably’ remove sanctions.


包括的共同行動計画(JCPOA)の合同委員会は、この土曜日(6月12日)に対面での会談をウィーンで再開すると、EUの対外活動サービス(External Action Service)がリリースで発表した。本Trend記事は、イランのlRNAという報道機関からの情報を引用している。

この合同委員会の議長を務めるのは、EUの上級代表者のJosep Borrellではなく、欧州対外活動サービスの事務総長代行兼政治ディレクターのEnrique Moraであると、同リリースは述べている。



JCPOAの参加諸国ならびに間接的ながらアメリカはこれまでに5ラウンドの会談をこの2か月間に持ち、アメリカのドナルド トランプ前大統領のために消滅の危機にさらされているこの核合意を復活させるべく務めてきている。


現在のアメリカ大統領ジョー バイデンは、このイランとの合意にアメリカが復帰する可能性をほのめかしている。だが、イランが要求しているすべての制裁の解除については、困難な決断でありまだ決定を下していない。

Nuclear talks to resume ahead of upcoming Iranian election

Effort to revive landmark pact blocking Iran from obtaining nuclear weapons in return for lifting US sanctions.


Nuclear talks to resume ahead of upcoming Iranian election | Elections News | Al Jazeera


Negotiations between Iran and world powers on how to revive the 2015 nuclear accord will resume over the coming weekend, US Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said on Wednesday.

Biden administration officials had hoped to conclude an agreement with Iran before the June 18 Iranian presidential election, which could complicate the talks, said Sherman.

“I know that the negotiation will start again over this coming weekend,” Sherman said during a virtual event organised by the German Marshall Fund.

“I think there’s been a lot of progress made, but out of my own experience until the last detail is nailed down, and I mean nailed down, we will not know if we have an agreement,” said Sherman, who was part of the Obama administration team that negotiated the original agreement with Iran.

The talks seek to revive the landmark pact under which Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of international sanctions and which had opened the way for a brief thaw in decades of US-Iranian confrontation.

A host of barriers to the revival of Iran’s nuclear deal remain firmly in place ahead of talks, suggesting a return to compliance with the 2015 accord is still a way off, four diplomats, two Iranian officials and two analysts told the Reuters news agency.

“This is complicated, of course, by the Iranian presidential election, which is happening in just a few days,” Sherman added.

President Hassan Rouhani, a pragmatist who promoted the original deal, is widely expected to be followed by a hardline successor.

Among six candidates dominated by conservatives and hardliners, Iranian chief justice Ebrahim Raisi is considered to be the frontrunner in the upcoming election, Al Jazeera has reported.

Former US President Donald Trump abandoned the deal in 2018 claiming it would allow Tehran an eventual path to become a nuclear power.

Trump reimposed US sanctions and embarked on a “maximum pressure” campaign. Iran responded by violating the agreement’s limits and reinvesting in its uranium enrichment capabilities.

Biden has sought to restore the deal’s nuclear limits and, if possible, extend them to cover issues such as Iran’s regional behaviour and missile programme.

Iran wants all sanctions lifted and no expansion of the terms.

Appearing before a US Senate committee on June 8, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said the US was very unlikely to remove all of its sanctions from Iran.

If Iran were to return to the 2015 agreement, which prevents it from developing nuclear weapons, the US would lift sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear programme but not those imposed by the US for alleged aggressive actions, Blinken said.

“I would anticipate that even in the event of a return to compliance … hundreds of sanctions would remain in place, including sanctions imposed by the Trump administration,” Blinken said.

“If they are not inconsistent with the JCPOA, they will remain unless and until Iran’s behaviour changes,” he said, using the formal name of the 2015 agreement, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Blinken said Iran’s trajectory after leaving the agreement puts it on a path to obtain enough fissile material for a nuclear bomb within a few months.

In the Gulf, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, resigned to a revival of a nuclear pact with Iran, have been engaging with Tehran to contain tensions while lobbying for future talks to take their security concerns into account.

“The Gulf countries have said ‘fine, the US can go back (to the nuclear deal), this is their decision we cannot change it, but … we need everybody to take into account regional security concerns’,” Gulf Research Center’s Abdulaziz Sager, who has been active in past unofficial Saudi-Iran dialogue, told Reuters this week.

2015年の核合意を再建しようというイランと世界主要国の間の交渉は、この週末に再開する見込みだと、アメリカの国務次官Wendy Shermanは水曜日に(6月9日)述べた。


ドイツ マーシャル ファンドが主催したオンライン イベントでShermanは、「この週末には交渉が再開することは、分かっている」と語った。





イランのハサン ルハーニ現大統領は現実主義者で、2015年の合意を推し進めていた。だが(この大統領選挙で彼は退任し)その後には強硬派の大統領が就任するものと見られている。

Al Jazeeraの報道によれば、今回の大統領選の候補者は6名だが、いずれも保守派や強硬派で、現在のイラン司法長官であるEbrahim Raisi が先頭を走っていると見られる。

アメリカのドナルド トランプ前大統領が2018年に、この2015年合意のためイランはいずれ核兵器保有国となってしまうと主張、JCPOA合意を破棄した。


バイデン現大統領はJCPOA合意の核開発制限の再建に努めてきており、さらに可能なら合意範囲を拡大してイランの中東での行動やミサイル プログラムをもカバーしようとしている。


6月8日のアメリカ上院の委員会に出席したAntony Blinken 国務長官によれば、アメリカが対イラン制裁をすべて解除する見込みは、きわめて小さい。



さらに同国務長官は「そうした制裁がJCPOAの規定と食い違ったものではなければ、イランが行動を変えるまでは、そうした制裁は残存することだろう」と語り、2015年合意の正式名称である「包括的共同作業計画」(Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action)を口に出した。

Blinken によれば、2015年の合意を破棄して以来のイランの行動を見ると、同国はあと2-3か月で原爆を作るに充分なだけの核分裂性物質を手に入れる道をたどっている。


Gulf Research Center (ペルシャ湾研究センター)のAbdulaziz Sagerは、「湾岸諸国の主張はこうだ。“結構なことだ、アメリカは核合意に復帰すればよい。それはアメリカの決定で、我々が変えることはできない。だが … 関係者すべてに、ペルシャ湾地域の心配も計算に入れていただきたいのだ”」と今週、述べている。Sagerは以前、非公式のサウディとイラン間の交渉にかかわっていた。

Vienna JCPOA Talks Have Not Come to a Final Conclusion – Iran Focus


On the eve of the fifth round of Vienna talks between Iran and world powers over the former’s illicit nuclear projects, Mikhail Ulyanov, Russia’s representative in the Atomic Energy Agency, said in the talks that the fifth round would probably be the last round of negotiations. But evidence suggests that the fifth round of Vienna talks has not come to an appropriate conclusion.

Then in a tweet on June 1, 2021, he stated that, “Everything is so much complicated in relations between Iran and the #IAEA to our regret! Nevertheless, we appreciate the fact that they continue to maintain the necessary level of cooperation. We have reasons to believe that the current difficulties are of temporary character.”


Vienna talks over four rounds and the fifth round was in progress that news announced by Rafael Grossi, the Director General of the Atomic Energy Agency, made the maintenance of the talks more complicated as he said:

“Iran’s failure to provide credible explanations for traces of uranium found at two undeclared sites is “a big problem” that is affecting the country’s credibility.”

Then he added that a linear return to the old JCPOA, “It is not possible. Iran has accumulated knowledge, has accumulated centrifuges, and has accumulated material.”

Then he added: “They have developed new centrifuges. Research and development have taken place. It was not allowed by the original JCPOA. It has happened and now the issue is how to deal with the results. What you absolutely need is a way to verify that if they have that knowledge, it is not being used to make bombs.”

Separately, France, one of the signatories to the deal, voiced concern after a report from the U.N. nuclear watchdog which showed on Monday that Iran had failed to explain traces of uranium found at several undeclared sites.

Now following the release of the new International Atomic Energy Agency report on the origin of new uranium particles, the three European powers must now decide whether they want to resume pressure to pass a resolution against the Iranian regime, as it could overshadow and making the ongoing talks to revive the JCPOA more complicated.

Three months ago, three European countries, Britain, France, and Germany, suspended the plan that the United States had submitted to the Board of Governors to issue a resolution against the Iranian regime on the discovery of new nuclear particles.

According to the latest report by the IAEA, the Iranian regime has not been able to provide a convincing explanation of the origin of the new uranium particles on several of its unannounced sites.

Of course, these were not the only news which are complicating the situation. In the middle of the fifth-round talks, the Agency provided another negative information about Iran’s nuclear program.

Iran’s 20 percent uranium deposits increased to 62 kilograms, which is an increase of 44.4 kg comparing the amount in February. The Agency also announced on May 31, Iran’s enriched uranium reserves reached 16 times the authorized ceiling allowed by the JCPOA. This rate was agreed upon 202 kg, while now Iran has 3.41 kg enriched uranium.

All this news is worrying while the Agency previously on 23 February 2021 has also announced that they have no access to the regulatory data.

Surprisingly, with this level of ambition, Iran’s government expectation that all the sanctions will be lifted at once is just an illusion.

The Vienna negotiations indicate that the main issues behind the scenes remained not only unresolved, but the agency’s recent statement adds to the volume of the complications and stagnation.

And the proof for that is, that the representatives of the negotiating counties returned to their capitals on June 1, 2021, without any progress, despite all the regime’s claims about progress.

Laurence Norman, a Wall Street Journal reporter in Brussels, wrote in a Twitter message on June 1: “Understand the current plan is to organise a break from Iran talks tomorrow or Thursday for delegations to return to capitals. Could change but that’s the plan. The Big question: when to resume and whether to continue before Iran presidential elections is not yet settled.”
(JCPOA交渉という)イランの不当な核開発プロジェクトに対応した、イランと世界主要国の間の会合の第5ラウンドがウィーンで開かれているが、その前夜にIAEAへのロシア代表Mikhail Ulyanovは、この交渉ではおそらくこの第5ラウンドが最後の会談になるだろうと述べていた。 だが現実を見ると、ウィーン会談の第5ラウンドでは、好ましい結論はまだ出ていないようだ。


ウィーン会談はすでに4ラウンドを重ね、(先週まで)第5がもたれていた。IAEAのRafael Grossi事務総長が発表したところでは、この会談の継続がさらに困難になっている。その発言を紹介する。













ブリュッセル駐在のWall Street Journal記者であるLaurence Normanが6月1日付のTwitter メッセージに記したところでは、「今のところの予定では、明日あるいは木曜日に対イラン交渉を中断して代表団はそれぞれの国に帰国するものと見られる。変更の可能性もあるが、予定としてはそういうことだ。問題は、イランの大統領選挙の結果が出る前に交渉を継続すべきなのか、いったいいつ再開すべきか、ということだ」


いらっしゃるので。社会的な洗脳やマインド コントロールというものは、

Iran’s Top Negotiator Reportedly Says Nuclear Talks Unlikely to Conclude in Current Round

Iran’s Top Negotiator Reportedly Says Nuclear Talks Unlikely to Conclude in Current Round – Sputnik International (

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Iran’s top negotiator on the revival of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Abbas Araqchi, said that the fifth round of talks was difficult and unlikely to be the last, media reported.

Negotiators have been debating how to bring Iran and the United States back into compliance with the 2015 nuclear deal since April. Russian Ambassador to international organizations in Vienna, Mikhail Ulyanov, said after meeting the Iranian delegation alongside Chinese diplomats, that talks are at the cusp of concluding.

“I am personally not sure that we will reach a conclusion in this round [of talks]. However, we will continue our efforts… no final decision has been reached yet,” Araqchi told reporters in Vienna, as quoted by Iranian national news outlet Press TV.

The Deputy Foreign Minister added that delegations may need to travel back to their home countries for consultations.

“The negotiations are very complicated. We are dealing with the main points of difference. We think that we have made good progress so far and trodden a good path,” Araqchi said

Iran has scaled back its commitments under the agreement to produce purer uranium after the US quit the pact in 2018 and reimposed crippling sanctions on Tehran. Iran wants all economic curbs lifted before agreeing to any concessions.

、モスクワ発報道によれば、JCPOA核合意の再建交渉でイラン代表団のトップを務めるAbbas Araqchiは、同交渉の第5ラウンドは困難なもので、これで交渉が完結する見込みは低いと述べた。

2015年の核合意にイランとアメリカを復帰させようとする、代表者たちによる討議はこの4月に始まった。ウィーンにある各種国際機関に対するロシア大使であるMikhail Ulyanovが、中国代表団とともにイラン代表団と会合した後に述べたところでは、交渉は完結し始めている。

「(会談の)今回のラウンドで結論に到達できるか否かは、私個人としては定かではない。しかし、努力を続ける。今のところ、最終的な結果は出ていない」と、Araqchi はウィーンで記者団に対して述べた。イラン国営の報道機関であるPress TVの報道による。

  1.  If Iran believed that any or all of the E3/EU+3 were not meeting their commitments under this JCPOA, Iran could refer the issue to the Joint Commission for resolution; similarly, if any of the E3/EU+3 believed that Iran was not meeting its commitments under this JCPOA, any of the E3/EU+3 could do the same. The Joint Commission would have 15 days to resolve the issue, unless the time period was extended by consensus. After Joint Commission consideration, any participant could refer the issue to Ministers of Foreign Affairs, if it believed the compliance issue had not been resolved. Ministers would have 15 days to resolve the issue, unless the time period was extended by consensus. After Joint Commission consideration – in parallel with (or in lieu of) review at the Ministerial level – either the complaining participant or the participant whose performance is in question could request that the issue be considered by an Advisory Board, which would consist of three members (one each appointed by the participants in the dispute and a third independent member). The Advisory Board should provide a non-binding opinion on the compliance issue within 15 days. If, after this 30-day process the issue is not resolved, the Joint Commission would consider the opinion of the Advisory Board for no more than 5 days in order to resolve the issue. If the issue still has not been resolved to the satisfaction of the complaining participant, and if the complaining participant deems the issue to constitute significant non-performance, then that participant could treat the unresolved issue as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or in part and/or notify the UN Security Council that it believes the issue constitutes significant non-performance.


36.  E3/EU+3(JCPOAの参加国でイラン以外の諸国)のいずれか、あるいはすべてがJCPOAの下での責任を果たしていないとイランが判断した場合には、 イランはその問題を合同委員会に報告して解決を求めることができる。同様に、イランがJCPOAの下での責任を果たしていないとE3/EU+3 諸国の何れかが判断した場合にも、合同委員会に報告して解決を求めることができる。合同委員会は報告を受けてから15日以内にその問題を解決すること。ただし、合意によってこの期間を延長することができる。合同委員会による検討の後、いずれの加盟国も、合意順守の問題が解決していないと判断した場合には、その問題について外相と相談することができる。関係諸国の外相たちは15日以内に、その問題を解決すること。ただし、合意によってこの期間を延長することができる。合同委員会による検討、そしてそれと並行しての、あるいはそれに代わる外相レベルでのレビューの後で、その問題を提出している加盟国あるいは合意順守への違反が疑われている加盟国のいずれも、諮問委員会によるその問題の検討を要請することができる。この諮問委員会は3名のメンバー(問題提出国が1名、問題ありとされている加盟国が1名、独立した第3の加盟国が1名)で構成される。諮問委員会は15日以内に、その合意順守問題に関する見解を発表すること。ただし、この見解には拘束力はない。ここまでの30日間のプロセスの後で、その問題がなお解決していない場合には、合同委員会は諮問委員会の見解を最長で5日間検討し、問題の解決に努めること。それでもなお、その問題が未解決であり、しかも問題提出国がその問題が深刻なものであるとみなす場合には、未解決であると判断する場合には、その提出国はその未解決問題を理由として、JCPOAの下での自らの責任のすべて、あるいはいずれかの履行を中止し、国連の安全保障理事会に対し、その問題が加盟国による義務不履行の深刻な例であると考えている旨を通知することができる。

then that participant could treat the unresolved issue as grounds to cease performing its commitments under this JCPOA in whole or in part and/or notify

という箇所が、イランのウラニウム“過剰濃縮”(西側寄りの態度でいうんじゃなくて、発電用なら5%でまったく充分なのですから!)再開の根拠となっているわけですね。何せ、アメリカがJCPOAそのものからいったん脱退しちゃったのですから。トランプ元大統領のやることは ・・・ この条項がある限り、アメリカが脱退しちゃうとイランが過剰濃縮を再開しちゃうってことを予測できなかったのでしょうか??

ですから、ウラニウム濃縮という行為そのものを各国・地域で行うことを全世界で禁止し、IAEAなりが一元管理する認定施設のみで行う ・・・ そんな風に変革したらどうかと、私は考えます。

その、第36条について … Tehran Times 3月30日

では、やはりイラン側からの視点も知るため、Tehran Timesが3月30日に報じた記事を見てまいりましょう。

Tehran Times, March 30, 2021
Iran to halt 20% enrichment only if sanctions lifted: Press TV – Tehran Times

“20-percent uranium enrichment is in line with paragraph 36 of the JCPOA and will be stopped only if the U.S. lifts all the sanctions,” the official said on Monday evening.

The official said Iran will not stop any of its current nuclear activities before the removal of all sanctions.

“The Biden administration is losing time, and if it fails to lift the sanctions soon, Iran will take the next steps, which will be further reduction of its JCPOA commitments,” the official added.

The Iranian official made the remarks in reaction to a report by Politico which claimed the U.S. is to end the deadlock over the 2015 nuclear deal with a new proposal.

Biden administration officials, mindful of the increasingly unfavorable calendar, plan to put forth a new proposal to jump-start the talks as soon as this week, two people familiar with the situation told Politico.

In reaction to the report, the Permanent Mission of the Islamic Republic to the United Nations reiterated that no proposal is needed for the U.S. to rejoin the JCPOA. “It only requires a political decision…”

Iran is in touch with the remaining participants in the #JCPOA on issues.

No proposal is needed for the U.S. to rejoin the JCPOA. It only requires a political decision by the U.S. to fully and immediately implement all of its obligations under the accord and abide by UNSCR 2231.

— Iran at the UN (@Iran_UN) March 29, 2021

The proposal asks Iran to halt some of its nuclear activities, such as work on advanced centrifuges and the enrichment of uranium to 20 percent purity, in exchange for some relief from U.S. economic sanctions, said one of the people, who stressed that the details are still being worked out.

The American proposal slated to be set forth this week is, “more than anything, about trying to get the conversation started” between the United States and Iran, one of the people familiar with the situation said.

Asked for official comment, a senior Biden administration official declined to discuss details of diplomatic conversations. “We have been clear that we are ready to pursue a mutual return to the [Iran deal],” the official added.

“We have also been open that we are talking with our [international] partners … about the best way to achieve this, including through a series of initial, mutual steps. We have been looking at options for doing so, including with indirect conversations through our European partners.”

Shahrokh Nazemi, the head of the press section at Iran’s mission to the United Nations, has also told Politico that the “return of the U.S. to the [deal] needs no specific proposal. It only requires a political decision by the U.S. to go for the full and immediate implementation of its obligations under” the agreement and a key UN resolution.”

Tehran has been insisting that since it was the U.S. that first quit the nuclear deal and slapped sanctions on Iran naturally it must be the first reverse its decision.







その報告に応答して、イラン議会の対アメリカ代表団は、アメリカがJCPOAに復帰するには何の提案も必要ではなく、「ただ、政治的決断だけが必要だ …」と繰り返した。


「アメリカがJCPOAに復帰するには何の提案も必要ではなく、ただ、この核合意の下でのすべての義務を守り、UNSCR 2231(国連安全保障理事会決議)を遵守するという政治的決断だけが必要だ」

— Iran at the UN (@Iran_UN) March 29, 2021
Iran at the UN (@Iran_UN)




「さらに我々が、その実現のためのベストの方法を求めて(国際的な)パートナー諸国と交渉を重ねていることも、オープンにしてきている … その一環として、最初に両国がどのようなステップを踏めばよいのかといった問題も討議している。アメリカのパートナーであるヨーロッパ諸国を介して、核合意再建のための選択肢を探している」と、同高官は語っている。

イランの対国連代表団の報道部門ヘッド、Shahrokh Nazem も政治関係者に向かい、「アメリカが(この核合意に)復帰するには、特に具体的な提案など不要だ。必要なのは、この核合意と国連安全保障理事会決議の下でのすべての義務を守るという政治的決断だけだ」と述べている。

Russia’s Envoy Foresees Showdown in JCPOA Talks – Politics news – Tasnim News Agency

TEHRAN (Tasnim) – The permanent representative of Russia to the international organizations in Vienna predicted that the current and fifth round of talks for the revival of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal would be the final round of negotiations.

“The fifth round of the Vienna talks on JCPOA is under way. As of now, there are no plans for the sixth,” Mikhail Ulyanov said in a post on his Twitter account on Sunday.

“The negotiators proceed from the understanding that the current round should be final,” the Russian ambassador noted.

The most recent round of JCPOA negotiations that began on April 6 examines the potential of revitalization of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and the US’ likely return to it.

The US left the JCPOA in 2018 and restored the economic sanctions that the accord had lifted. Tehran retaliated with remedial nuclear measures that it is entitled to take under the JCPOA’s Paragraph 36.
