Joint Statement of the Spokespersons of the High Representative, France, Germany and the United Kingdom on the JCPoA
The spokespersons of the High Representative, France, Germany and the United Kingdom have made a statement on the JCPoA.
France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the High Representative express their deep concern over Iran’s announcements and actions in contradiction with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA). The IAEA has confirmed in its extraordinary report of 8 September that advanced centrifuges have been installed or are being installed in Natanz. France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the High Representative are deeply concerned by these activities.
They are concerned by the risk that the JCPoA further unravels under the strain of sanctions imposed by the United States since May 2018 and following Iran’s decisions to no longer implement several of the central provisions of the agreement.
They believe the latest developments underline the need for diplomatic efforts towards de-escalation and resumption of dialogue, which we fully support.
They continue to support the JCPoA and strongly urge Iran to reverse all activities that are inconsistent with its commitments under the JCPoA and to refrain from any further steps. They call on Iran to cooperate with the IAEA on all relevant matters, including safeguards issues.
They reiterate our support for the work of the IAEA and recall our confidence in the impartial and independent way in which it monitors and verifies Iran’s nuclear commitments.
