Theresa May within the framework of the G20 summit, which will be her last major international event as Prime Minister of Britain, intends to talk with her partners about the importance of observing the agreements in the Iranian nuclear deal and the need to de-escalate the situation in the region.
On the anniversary of the US withdrawal from the nuclear deal, Iran on May 8 announced the termination of a number of items of the Joint Comprehensive Action Plan to ensure the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program (DFID) – in terms of enriched uranium and heavy water. In Iran, they explained the measures taken by violations of the US nuclear deal and the imposition of sanctions against Tehran by Washington, as well as the inability of the remaining members (Germany, France, Great Britain, China and Russia) to solve the problems, including ensuring the economic interests of Tehran. In this regard, Iran has given these countries 60 days to ensure Iran’s interests, promising to return to the implementation of the suspended obligations, if they manage to solve the problems.
The European participants of the JCPOA, RF and PRC have repeatedly stated that they are in favor of preserving the transaction.
“It is important that Iran comply with its obligations under the agreement. What we need to see is a de-escalation of the tensions that we have seen in that region. We will continue to work, and I will continue to work, with my European colleagues in France and Germany to maintain the JCPOA,” May said to reporters on the eve of the summit.
