USA joins Israel in accusing Iran as nuclear deal flounders

IAEA confirms Iran's installation of centrifuges

"At the same time, all parties to the agreement should also commit themselves to the full and effective implementation" of the JCPOA, Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters in Beijing.

In its statement, the IAEA added that the centrifuges had been installed at Iran's Natanz facility and all of them "had been prepared for testing with UF6 (uranium hexafluoride), although none of them were being tested with UF6 on 7 and 8 September 2019".

The United States withdrew from the agreement past year and imposed sanctions on Iran with the aim of halting its oil exports and forcing Tehran to negotiate a more sweeping "comprehensive deal".

Despite Trump repeatedly saying lately that he would meet with the Iranians, Rouhani has rejected his overtures, insisting that he would only meet with the United States if it lifts sanctions, which the Trump administration reimposed after withdrawing from the 2015 nuclear deal, in addition to enacting new financial penalties against the regime.

The IAEA says it was notified by Iran that it would not recognize the deal's limits on research and development of centrifuges to enrich uranium.

Iran has given another two months to the European signatories to take meaningful action to save the JCPOA as a France-led diplomatic process is underway between the two sides.

Washington then imposed harsher sanctions on Iran's oil exports and other key industries, as well as on top officials and part of its military, the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps.

"Sure, anything's possible. They would like to be able to solve their problem", Trump said, adding that "we could solve it (the problem) in 24 hours".

Last week Trump said a meeting with Rouhani was possible at the U.N. General Assembly in NY later in September.

On Sept. 6, U.S. Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that there are indications that Iran is "inching" toward new talks with the United States.

The landmark accord has been under mounting pressure since the USA withdrew from it in May 2018 and then re-introduced sanctions on Iran.
