European Council President urges Iran to avoid steps with consequences for JCPOA

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The head of the European Council, Charles Michel, urged Iran to avoid steps that could lead to irreversible consequences regarding the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan (JCPA) on the Iranian nuclear program, he made such a statement during a telephone conversation with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

In early January 2020, Iran announced the abandonment of “the last key limitation in the nuclear deal regarding the number of centrifuges,” and said that now “there are no restrictions on working with Iran’s nuclear program.”

At the same time, Tehran intends to continue to cooperate with the IAEA, as before, and is ready to return to fulfilling its obligations in the event of lifting the sanctions and ensuring Tehran’s interests stipulated by the nuclear deal.

“The JCPOA was an important achievement of 10 years of tense international negotiations and remains an important tool for ensuring regional stability. The President of the European Council called on the Iranian president to refrain from steps that could lead to irreversible consequences,” the European Council press service said in a statement.

Michel also called on the parties not to make further efforts to increase tension in the region and expressed hope for the de-escalation of the situation in the Middle East.
