BREAKING: UK, France and Germany trigger Iran Deal “dispute resolution mechanism”
CUFI | Jan 14, 2020:
Britain, France and Germany have jointly triggered the Iran Deal “dispute resolution mechanism” – a major step that could see the end of the disastrous nuclear deal if grievances are not resolved.
In a joint statement published by the German Foreign Ministry, the three countries expressed their commitment to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), which the US withdrew from in 2018, but admitted that Iran has continued to breach the terms.
The DRM, or dispute resolution mechanism, allows any signatory to the deal to register that they believe another party is not fulfilling its terms. An independent commission then launches an inquiry into the complaint, and if it is not resolved within five weeks then the complainant can abandon its obligations.
The statement released Tuesday morning reads that efforts have been made to “deescalate tensions”and “bring Iran and the US to the negotiating table”, but Iran has “continued to break key restrictions set out in the JCPoA”. It states, “Iran’s actions are inconsistent with the provisions of the nuclear agreement and have increasingly severe and non-reversible proliferation implications.”
“Instead of reversing course, Iran has chosen to further reduce compliance with the JCPoA,” the statement reads.
“We have therefore been left with no choice, given Iran’s actions, but to register today our concerns that Iran is not meeting its commitments under the JCPoA and to refer this matter to the Joint Commission under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, as set out in paragraph 36 of the JCPoA.”
Meanwhile, in an interview on BBC Breakfast on Tuesday morning, Prime Minister Johnson said the most important thing is to ensure Iran does not get its hands on a nuclear deal.
“The problem with the JCPOA is basically from the American perspective it is a flawed agreement, it expires, plus it was negotiated by President Obama,” Johnson said. “If we are going to get rid of it let’s replace it, let’s replace it with the Trump deal”.
Johnson also called on Trump to work together with the UK to replace the JCPOA and get the “Trump deal” instead.
TODAY: "If we are to get rid of the Iran Deal, let's replace it with the Trump deal"The Prime Minister told a breakfast TV interview this morning that Iran must not be allowed a nuclear weapon and he would prefer a "Trump deal" instead of the current JCPOA.
