Iran - Q&A from the press briefing (1 March 2021)


Q : What’s your response to public statements by Iran rejecting an informal P5+1 meeting?

A : Like its partners, France regrets Iran’s announcement that it will not take part in an informal meeting with the other participants in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA) and the United States. This comes at a time when Iran is accumulating JCPoA violations, among other things limiting the IAEA’s verification capabilities.

We remain fully committed to working with our E3 partners, the other JCPoA participants and the United States to achieve a negotiated solution enabling Iran to once again comply with its nuclear commitments and enabling the United States to rejoin the 2015 agreement.
