JCPoA implementation: UK government statement, 4 July 2020

UK statement after the EU High Representative confirmed receipt of the Iranian Foreign Minister's letter on implementing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.


On 3 July, EU High Representative Josep Borrell, the Coordinator of the JCPoA Joint Commission, issued a statement confirming he had received a letter from Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif regarding implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) by the UK, France and Germany.

A Foreign Office spokesperson said:

The UK remains committed to JCPoA, but it is being put at risk by systematic Iranian non-compliance.

If Iran wishes to benefit from the JCPoA, it must engage constructively with the Dispute Resolution Mechanism (DRM) process initiated by the E3, and implement its commitments under the deal.
