EU: JCPOA A Matter of Global Security

A European Commission spokeswoman said it is still committed to the 2015 nuclear deal between Tehran and world powers even after US President Donald Trump’s withdrawal from the agreement.

Maja Kocijancic, a spokeswoman for the European Commission, said Monday that the deal “is a matter of our security, not just the region or Europe but globally.”

She also said the EU’s commitment to the deal “depends on the full compliance by Iran.”

It came after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said that in reaction to the continued failure of the European parties to meet their obligations to the 2015 nuclear deal, the Islamic Republic on Wednesday would take the 4th step in reducing its commitments under the agreement.

The fourth step will be taken Wednesday at the Fordow nuclear site, Rouhani said, adding that Iran has 1044 centrifuges at Fordow, which were supposed to rotate without gas according to the JCPOA but gas will be injected into them tomorrow.   

In May 2018, US President Donald Trump pulled his country out of the JCPOA.

Iran and the remaining parties launched talks to save the JCPOA after the US withdrawal, but the three EU parties to the deal (France, Britain, and Germany) have failed to ensure Iran’s economic interests.

The EU’s inaction forced Tehran to stop honoring certain commitments to the nuclear deal, including a rise in the stockpile of enriched uranium.

Iran maintains that the new measures are not designed to harm the JCPOA but to save the accord by creating a balance in the commitments.
