The United States will respond "appropriately" in case Iran implements its plans to develop nuclear weapons, the US State Department said on Thursday, June 13.

“These planned actions further undermine Iran's claims [that it has no plans to develop nuclear weapons] and if Iran implements these plans, we will respond accordingly,” the document states.

Miller emphasized that "Iran must urgently begin cooperation with the IAEA to fully implement its legal obligations under nuclear nonproliferation guarantees.

"Until Iran does so, the Board of Governors The IAEA will continue to hold Iran accountable. We remain in close coordination with our partners and allies and are ready to continue to increase pressure on Iran if it refuses to cooperate with the IAEA,” Miller said.

BAGNET recalls that on May 8, IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi called the level of Iran’s cooperation on the nuclear program “completely unsatisfactory.” Grossi made this statement after attending a nuclear conference in Iran.

Grossi called on Tehran to take concrete steps to address concerns about the rapid development of the Islamic Republic's nuclear program.

Iran and the IAEA continue negotiations on an agreement to expand inspections of the country's nuclear program.
