He official said that those machines could be brought back into full service if the 2015 nuclear deal - formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - were to collapse.
Since the nuclear deal went into force the International Atomic Energy Agency has issued ten reports confirming Iran's compliance with its commitments.
"As of today, I can state that Iran is implementing its nuclear-related commitments..."
Amano said the accord "represents a significant gain for verification" and that if it "were to fail, it would be a great loss for nuclear verification and for multilateralism".
Zarif went on to say that the U.S.is playing "illogical political games" regarding the nuclear deal.
The deal is "international diplomatic achievement", and it should be protected, he stressed.
"As a multi-lateral deal which came to fruition through the joint efforts of several sides including the European states, the JCPOA has been prone to illogical and politically-motivated tricks of the USA", he said.
President Donald Trump has set a May 12 ultimatum for the European signatories to change the agreement.
Trump has threatened to pull out of the deal unless Congress and European allies help "fix" it with a follow-up agreement.

The Iranian official called for the acceleration of implementation of the Iranian nuclear deal.
The 2015 accord between France, Britain, Germany, Russia, China and the United States gave Iran relief from economic sanctions in return for curbs to its nuclear programme, allowing Tehran to talk trade with Europe for the first time in years.
Netanyahu's central argument is that if the USA were to put in place new sanctions against Iran, countries throughout the world would be forced to choose between access to the Iranian economy, with its GDP of approximately $500 billion, and the American economy, with its GDP of almost $20 trillion.
"The condition for negotiations on Iran's missiles is the destruction of America's and Europe's nuclear weapons and long-range missiles", Brigadier General Masoud Jazayeri told the official IRNA news agency.
According to its supporters, this agreement has supposedly curtailed the Iranian regime's nuclear program, preventing it from developing a nuclear weapon, and becoming a threat to world peace.
Ali Akbar Velayati, foreign policy adviser to supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, criticized Le Drian's position on Saturday, just two days before they are expected to meet.
"Iran is an independent country and can defend itself in any way it sees fit whether with missiles or any other defensive means", Velayati told reporters in Tehran.
Le Drian arrived in Tehran on Monday for talks with Iranian officials on mutual ties as well as regional and worldwide issues.
France has been quick to restore trade ties. According to the French Treasury, Iran's trade exchanges with France stood at 3.8 billion Euros past year. "If not tackled head-on, this country risks new sanctions".
