TEHRAN: Iran has said it will block snap inspections by the U.N. nuclear watchdog this month if other parties to the 2015 nuclear deal fail to fulfil their obligations.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Saeed Khatibzadeh in a statement said if others do not fulfil their obligations by 21st of this month, the government will be obliged to suspend the voluntary implementation of the Additional Protocol.

He said Iran has not sought and will never seek nuclear weapons. The Supreme leader’s fatwa is valid.

The Biden administration aims to bring the United States back to the nuclear deal, which then-President Donald Trump abandoned in 2018. Under the deal, Iran agreed to curbs on its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of sanctions.
