EU’s Borrell: US Not A JCPOA Participant, Can’t Reinstate UN Sanctions - Tasnim News Agency

Chief Josep Borrell, who is the coordinator of the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers, known as the JCPOA, one more time stressed that the US is not a JCPOA participant state and cannot initiate the process of reinstating the UN sanctions.

“As recalled in my statement of 20 August, as well as in the Chair’s statement following the JCPOA Joint Commission on 1 September 2020, the US unilaterally ceased participation in the JCPOA by presidential Memorandum on 8 May 2018 and has subsequently not participated in any JCPOA-related activities. It cannot, therefore, be considered to be a JCPOA participant State and cannot initiate the process of reinstating UN sanctions under the UN Security Council resolution 2231. Consequently, sanctions lifting commitments under the JCPOA continue to apply,” Borrell said in a statement on Sunday.
He added, “As coordinator of the JCPOA Joint Commission I will continue to do everything possible to ensure the preservation and full implementation of the JCPOA by all. The JCPOA remains a key pillar of the global non-proliferation architecture, contributing to regional and global security as it addresses Iran’s nuclear program in a comprehensive manner. I call on all to do their utmost to preserve the agreement and to refrain from any action that could be perceived as an escalation in the current situation”.

  1. Die USA führen die internationale Gemeinschaft weiterhin in die Irre, indem sie über die Wiederherstellung von Sanktionen gegen den Iran spekulieren. Diese Auffassung äußerte das russische Außenministerium in einer Erklärung am Sonntag.

    Der UN-Sicherheitsrat habe keine Aktivitäten unternommen, die zur Wiederaufnahme der anti-iranischen Sanktionen führen würden, betonte das russische Außenministerium.
