UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
The leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom have jointly called on Iran to fully implement the 2015 Nuclear Agreement signed with world powers and refrain from further violence.
In a statement released by the office of French President Emmanuel Macron, they also said they “remain committed” to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
“We call on Iran to review all measures in violation of the agreement and return to full implementation,” the joint statement said.
The statement comes after reports that Iran is resuming its uranium enrichment activities.
“We call on Iran to refrain from further violent actions, and we remain ready to engage with Iran on this agenda in order to preserve the stability of the region,” they say.
Tensions have risen in the region since the US killed Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran’s Revolutionary Guard (IRGC) Quds elite force, in an air strike near Baghdad International Airport.
Iran retaliated by firing dozens of ballistic missiles at Iraqi bases housing American troops.
The three states also said recent events have highlighted “Iran’s destabilizing role” in the region.
They stressed that their commitment to the security of their allies and partners in the region was “steadfast”.
“We reiterate our readiness to continue our commitment to de-escalation and stability in the region,” they say.
