Iran - JCPoA - Q&A (30 Sept. 2021)


Q : Do you think China is playing a sufficiently constructive role to convince Tehran to resume negotiations on the 2015 agreement?

A : France, its E3 partners, its other JCPoA partners and the United States are all urging Iran to return to the Vienna talks without delay in order to swiftly conclude negotiations on Iran’s return to its commitments under the JCPoA and the return of the United States.

That is the message France is conveying to the Iranian authorities, most recently during a meeting between the minister and Hossein Amir-Abdollahian in New York on September 24. It is also the message we are all conveying to Tehran, separately and via the JCPoA coordinator, because it is the only path consistent with our collective interest. We are counting on China to marshal its most convincing arguments in its own dialogue with Tehran.
