Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2021:0
Iran voted for most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament, including the UNGA resolution titled “Taking forward multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations,” and other UNGA Resolutions related to the humanitarian dimensions as well as legal prohibition of nuclear weapons. However, it has not actively engaged in promotion of nuclear disarmament. Iran has neither ratified the CTBT nor signed the TPNW. It also abstained the UNGA resolution calling for immediate commencement of FMCT negotiations.
Nuclear Non-Proliferation 27 Points Full Points 61 44.3%
Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2021:-5
Although indirect negotiations by the countries concerned to revive the JCPOA were held intermittently, no agreement was reached by the end of 2021. As a countermeasure to the U.S. withdrawal from the JCPOA and the enhancement of sanctions on Iran, Tehran has steadily expanded the areas from which it has withdrawn from its own obligations under the JCPOA; such as the upper limits of, inter alia, its stockpile of enriched uranium, level of enrichment, and the number of centrifuges. Iran also produced 20% and 60% HEU as well as uranium metal. In addition, it also suspended verification and monitoring measures under the JCPOA, including the provisional application of the Additional Protocol to the IAEA Safeguards Agreement. The IAEA could not resolve the issues regarding the accuracy and completeness of declarations for four sites related to the alleged Iran’s past clandestine nuclear program. Iran and North Korea reportedly continue cooperation on a missile development project.
Nuclear Security 13 Points Full Points 41 31.7%
Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2021:+1
While Iran has completed domestic procedures to ratify the Joint Convention, there is room for improvement in acceding to other relevant conventions. Iran is updating the regulations on security of radioactive sources and prevention of illicit trafficking. Iran seems to become more positively involved in nuclear security by hosting IAEA workshops both for itself and for the region in the past few years.
