Iran: Joint E3/High Representative statement on the Iran nuclear deal
Following IAEA verification that Iran has started enriching above JCPOA limits, France, Germany, the UK and High Representative have issued a joint statement.
The Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, and the United Kingdom and the High Representative express deep concern that Iran is pursuing activities inconsistent with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA).
The IAEA has now confirmed that Iran has started enriching uranium above the maximum allowed limit stipulated in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
We express deep concern that Iran is not meeting several of its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
Iran has stated that it wants to remain within the JCPoA. It must act accordingly by reversing these activities and returning to full JCPoA compliance without delay.
These compliance issues must be addressed within the framework of the JCPoA, and a Joint Commission should be convened urgently.
We call on all parties to act responsibly towards deescalating ongoing tensions regarding Iran’s nuclear activities.
