Europe’s first step in holding Iran accountable for nuclear belligerence

EU Just Days Away From Sanctioning Iran

Europe’s first step in holding Iran accountable for nuclear belligerence


Britain, France and Germany triggered the Iran nuclear deal Dispute Resolution Mechanism on January 14 expressing its concern over Iran’s failure to comply to the terms of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). However, the three nations also reaffirmed their commitment to the nuclear deal and said they were not joining the United States’ maximum pressure campaign.

On January 5, Iran announced it would no longer abide by the restrictions of the nuclear deal. It had already broken several terms of the agreement, so the declaration was more of a political statement.

The joint statement by Britain, France and Germany said, "We have therefore been left with no choice, given Iran’s actions, but to register today our concerns that Iran is not meeting its commitments under the JCPOA and to refer this matter to the Joint Commission under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, as set out in paragraph 36 of the JCPOA ."
