Iran (26.02.2019)

What is your response to the announcement of Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif’s resignation? Is his departure liable to cast a shadow on the implementation of the Iranian nuclear agreement?

We have taken note of Mr. Zarif’s announcement of his resignation.

France is committed to the implementation of the JCPoA, which it will continue to support as long as Iran abides by all of its nuclear obligations. Unanimously endorsed by the UN Security Council in Resolution 2231, this agreement is a key component of the non-proliferation regime and an important factor in international and regional security.
