UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — The European Union’s High Representative for Security and Foreign Policy Joseph Borrell announced on Friday that the joint committee of the Iranian nuclear agreement will hold a meeting in February.
In a statement, Borrell said that the commission’s experts (made up of France, Britain, Germany, China, Russia and Iran) have decided to continue deliberating on the commitment to implement the nuclear agreement with Tehran.
He added that the committee would follow up on the commitment to implement the nuclear agreement on a regular basis, and would meet next month, without giving further details.
In 2015, Iran signed the nuclear agreement with the 5 + 1 countries, before the United States withdrew from it on May 8, 2018, and imposed sanctions on Tehran.
For its part, Tehran has taken several gradual steps to break down its obligations in accordance with the agreement.
On January 14, the leaders of Britain, France and Germany announced the activation of the “dispute settlement 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 party to the nuclear agreement believes that the other party is not fulfilling its obligations, he 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.
