Triggering the JCPoA Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Foreign Secretary's Commons statement

Iranians held hands during a demonstration in front of Tehran's Amir Kabir University

Britain, France, and Germany had on Tuesday announced they were launching a dispute mechanism under the deal - known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - because Iran was not meeting its commitments. The EU nuclear experts said Iran's first two steps away from the deal centering on uranium enrichment stockpile were tolerable, but its later steps meant Iran's path to nuclear break-out was coming too short.

Iran's breakout time, the time it would need to produce enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon, is now falling, a matter of worldwide cause of concern.

The move makes it more hard to keep the agreement alive.

So, with regret, the E3 was left with no choice, but to refer Iran to the JCPoA's Dispute Resolution Mechanism.

The European states also rejected Tehran's claim that it was justified in violating the terms of the Obama-led deal because the USA already breached the 2015 agreement with President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw in 2018.

Time and time again, we have expressed our serious concerns to Iran, and urged it to come back into compliance.

Iran has taken its five successive steps away from the deal because it says the European Union has not fulfilled its commitment to boost trade.

The money will be targeted at threatened species including koalas and also be used to restore damaged animal habitats. Dozens of other fires are yet to be controlled.

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson told the BBC Tuesday the original agreement with Iran was flawed and should be renegotiated. "Our hope is to bring Iran back into full compliance with its commitments under the JCPoA", they said.

The three countries said they would not join "a campaign to implement maximum pressure against Iran" championed by US President Donald Trump. But Iran has so far refused.

They said they wanted to prevent a nuclear proliferation crisis adding to the escalating stand-off between Tehran and Washington, which peaked with the killing of Iran's top military commander, Qassem Suleimani, on January 3rd. "Let's work together to replace the JCPOA and get the Trump deal instead".

Iran rolled back on its uranium enrichment constraints detailed in the global agreement earlier this month after one of its top military commanders, Qassem Soleimani, was assassinated in an American drone strike in Iraq. However, the country keeps allowing the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) monitors to its nuclear sites - and "the transparency of the Iranian nuclear program has been one of the key clauses of the nuclear deal." .

Analysts say the United Nations sanctions that would be re-imposed would have little impact on the Iranian economy, already under severe strain from measures the U.S. has taken since May 2018.

We are triggering the DRM, because Iran has undermined the objective and goal of the JCPoA, but we do so with a view to bringing Iran back into full compliance. "Or sink deeper and deeper into political and economic isolation", he said.
