The European Union foreign policy chief on Wednesday called it a “joint responsibility” to preserve the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers, saying the deal serves the “collective interest” of all.
As the United States continues rallying the world to uphold brutal international sanctions against the Islamic Republic in violation of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, or JCPOA, Europe is struggling to convince Iran to remain in the agreement through INSTEX (Instrument in Support of Trade Exchanges).
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has issued a report confirming an earlier announcement by the spokesman for the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI), Behrouz Kamalvandi, that Tehran has passed the 3.67% uranium enrichment cap set by a 2015 nuclear deal and reached about 4.5%.
France, Britain and Germany, the three European signatories of the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran, have asked the Islamic Republic to reverse its decision to enrich uranium beyond the limits set in the agreement.
Russia once again underlines the need for the remaining parties to the 2015 multilateral nuclear deal to live up to their commitments to help Iran benefit from the accord as Tehran says it has done enough to preserve the agreement and will not take the burdens alone anymore.
