Iran – Adoption of Resolution 2231 (2015) by the UN Security Council – Statement by Laurent Fabius (July 20, 2015)


The United Nations Security Council has adopted Resolution 2231, which endorses the recent agreement reached in Vienna by Iran and the E3+3 nations on the nuclear issue. This decision is an important step toward the implementation of our Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Its unanimous adoption is good news.

The historic importance of this agreement, the major role played by the three European powers (France, the United Kingdom and Germany) and the role of coordinator taken on by the High Representative were applauded by the European Union Foreign Affairs Council.
