Signatories to Iran Nuclear Deal Disqualify the US
19 de septiembre de 2020, 8:57Tehran, Sep 19 (Prensa Latina) The United Kingdom, France and Germany disqualified a proposal by the United States to maintain global sanctions against Iran, under the nuclear agreement sealed in 2015 between Tehran and six world powers, it was reported here today.
The European trio signatory to the Comprehensive Joint Action Plan (JCPOA) or nuclear pact, specified that the North American request lacks legality because Washington abandoned that consent in May 2018.
In a joint letter sent to the UN Security Council, the European triad specified that any decision or action taken to restore global sanctions would have no legal effect, according to a report by the Reuters news agency.
'The alleged notification under paragraph 11 of Resolution 2231 that protects the Jcpoa which the United States distributed in the Security Council, cannot have legal effect and, therefore, cannot enter into force,' says the British, German and French text.
From which, it adds, any decision and action based on that procedure or possible result, has no effect either.
Iran sealed a historic nuclear agreement with the G5 + 1 (the United States, the United Kingdom, France, Russia and China plus Germany) in 2015, but Washington, under orders from President Donald Trump, withdrew and lost all its rights.
The Trump government reinstated all the sanctions that were lifted after the signing of the Jcpoa and from that moment it intensified its maximum pressure campaign against the country of the Persians.
A session of the UN Security Council is scheduled for tomorrow to discuss the White House's proposal to maintain punitive anti-Iranian measures.
