Foreign Secretary marks important day in Iran nuclear deal
Philip Hammond says focus now is on deal’s implementation
18 October marks Adoption Day for the historic nuclear deal agreed with Iran in July. The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) comes into force today.
Speaking to mark the day, Foreign Secretary Philip Hammond said:
This is a landmark day for an historic deal, marking the culmination of a decade of talks between the UK, our partners, and Iran.
This will ensure that a nuclear weapon remains beyond Iran’s reach, thus creating a safer region while opening opportunities for Iran to re-engage with the international community as sanctions are progressively lifted
