UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS)
The Iranian Foreign Ministry said on Tuesday that Britain, Germany and France should bear the consequences of activating the “mechanism for resolving the nuclear dispute” with Tehran.
In a statement, Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi accused Britain, Germany and France of not fulfilling its obligations in the nuclear agreement, adding that “Iran will respond seriously and firmly to any unconstructive measure by the three countries.”
Mousavi added that Tehran had started activating the mechanism, and had informed the coordinator of the joint committee of that, noting that in light of this, the European measure does not represent anything new.
He pointed out that after Tehran activated the mechanism, the European parties did not take a concrete and serious step to implement their pledges, pointing out that this prompted his country to reduce its pledges in stages, according to items 26 and 36.
Earlier Tuesday, the leaders of Britain, France and Germany announced their activation of the “conflict resolution mechanism” included in the nuclear agreement with Iran, against the background of Tehran’s “failure” to honor its obligations under the agreement.
And the dispute settlement mechanism means that if one of the parties to the nuclear agreement believes that the other party is not fulfilling its obligations, then it may resort to a number of steps to settle the problem, and in the event that this is not possible, the matter may reach the file of the UN Security Council, and the possibility of re-imposing sanctions.
