EU statement supporting JCPOA

EU1Following US President Trump’s decision not to certify Iran’s compliance with the JCPOA (see previous blog here), the EU has issued a press release saying it is “committed to the continued full and effective implementation of all parts of the JCPOA” and that the US decision is “an internal US process”. The EU encourages the US to “maintain its commitment to the JCPOA and to consider the implications for the security of the US, its partners and the region before taking further steps.” It repeats the need to address concerns related to ballistic missiles and increasing tensions in the region outside the JCPOA, “in the relevant formats and fora”. It further states that “at a time of acute nuclear threat the EU is determined to preserve the JCPOA as a key pillar of the international non-proliferation architecture.”
