European countries urge Iran to back away from violating the nuclear agreement


Britain, Germany and France, Sunday, urged Iran to comply with the terms of the nuclear agreement signed in the year 2015, and to cancel all measures that do not agree with it.

This came in a joint statement published by the British government on its website, this evening.

The statement said: “We remain committed to and maintain the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (the nuclear agreement).”

He added: “We urge Iran to cancel all measures that are inconsistent with the agreement and return to full compliance with its provisions.”

The statement also called on Iran to “refrain from further acts of violence (…) to maintain the stability of the region.”

He said that “the recent events have highlighted Iran’s destabilizing role in the region, whether through the Revolutionary Guard forces or the Quds Force.”

On January 5, Iran announced the suspension of all its pledges in the framework of the nuclear agreement, against the background of the killing of the commander of the Iranian “Quds Force” Qassem Soleimani, in a US raid in Iraq.

In a statement, the Iranian government stated that it has suspended all its obligations within the nuclear agreement, and will not abide by them from now on, stressing that “Tehran will not honor the obligations related to uranium enrichment, storage, research and development.”

However, it confirmed Tehran’s continued cooperation with the International Atomic Energy Agency, and its readiness to return to the agreement if sanctions are lifted and its interests are secured within its framework.

In May 2018, Washington withdrew from the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and the 5 + 1 group, which includes Russia, Britain, China, the United States, France and Germany, and imposed economic sanctions on Tehran.

The agreement provides for Tehran’s commitment to abandon, for a period of no less than 10 years, vital parts of its nuclear program, and restrict it significantly, with the aim of preventing it from acquiring the ability to develop nuclear weapons, in exchange for the lifting of sanctions imposed on it.
