EU foreign ministers slam Iranian breaches of nuclear agreement

The foreign ministers of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the High Representative of the European Union have expressed deep concern that Iran is pursuing activities inconsistent with its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), the EU said in a statement.

“The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has now confirmed that Iran has started enriching uranium above the maximum allowed limit stipulated in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action,” the statement continued, while the ministers added that they were deeply concerned that Iran was not meeting several of its commitments under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Iran has stated that it wants to remain within the JCPoA.

“We call on all parties to act responsibly towards deescalating ongoing tensions regarding Iran’s nuclear activities,” the statement concluded.
