UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, in response to a letter from the House of Commons Foreign Affairs Committee, has confirmed that after Brexit the UK will remain part of the JCPOA and continue to comply with it, and that the UK will:
- work closely with the EU to maintain Iran’s compliance and sanctions relief.
- carry over all existing EU sanctions regimes on Iran.
- “engage” at national and EU level to ensure that “business gets as much clarity and guidance as possible” on the EU blocking regulation.
- call on the US to “preserve the gains” the JCPOA has brought and to avoid actions “that would prevent the remaining parties from meeting their commitments to upholding the deal”.
