President Donald Trump accused Iran on Wednesday (July 10) of secretly enriching uranium for a long time and said United States sanctions would be increased " substantially" soon, as the UN nuclear watchdog held an emergency meeting on Teheran's breach of a nuclear deal.
However, the diplomat expressed concerns about the different reactions by the parties to the deal when to the United States withdrew from the pact in 2018 and when Iran took its reciprocal steps a year later. He says the Trump administration hasn't learned.
The UN is set to host a conference next year "aimed at developing new steps in the fight against global".
Earlier this month, it was confirmed that Iran surpassed 300 kilogrammes of enriched uranium reserves, another limit that was imposed by the deal. However, they say there is little they can do to ensure the vital oil sales Iran seeks. "That has caused all the problems".
European powers still party to the deal have set up a mechanism for facilitating legitimate trade without direct financial transactions that they hope will circumvent the USA sanctions. It is scheduled to start at 2:30 p.m. local time in Vienna.
The IAEA was unlikely to take any stringent action as it wants its inspectors to remain able to visit and monitor Iran's nuclear sites. They launched a new trade mechanism called Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges (INSTEX) to continue trade with Iran in a non-dollar basis.

The United Nations' nuclear watchdog is holding an emergency meeting on Iran on July 10, just days after Tehran announced its second violation of a 2015 nuclear deal it concluded with world powers. Any clandestine enrichment elsewhere would be a grave breach of the deal.
He says that the "costly" consequences of American sanctions mean "they should be seen as weapons of warfare".
In the Iranian capital Tehran, a senior Iranian official called on the Europeans to "stand up for their identity and independence against America's unilateralism".
Emmanuel Bonne met Rear-Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran's Supreme National Security Council, and was set to meet with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif later on Wednesday.
The new threatened enrichment increase would go far beyond the small steps Iran has taken in the past week to nudge stocks of fissile material just beyond limits in the pact that Washington abandoned a year ago. President Macron was the only European leader to personally contact his Iranian counterpart after the Islamic Republic officially revealed that the level of its uranium enrichment had broken the cap placed on it by the JCPOA.
Iran has acknowledged it is now enriching uranium beyond the limits of the accord Trump withdrew from a year ago and keeping a bigger stockpile than it was allowed.
Mr Trump's Iran sanctions have cut the state of from the U.S. financial system and made them unable to trade in USA dollars. Iran has rejected talks for a new deal.
