MIL OSI Translation. Region: Germany / Deutschland –

Source: Federal Foreign Office We, the Foreign Ministers of Germany, France and the United Kingdom, deeply regret that Iran started today to suspend the additional protocol and the transparency measures under the Vienna Nuclear Agreement (JCPoA). With its measures, Iran is once again violating its obligations under the JCPoA and significantly reducing the IAEA’s safeguards. The E3 jointly underline how dangerous this decision is. It significantly restricts the IAEA’s access to the facilities and the information relevant to the safeguards. It also limits the ability of the IAEA – in accordance with its reporting mandate under Security Council Resolution 2231 – to monitor and verify Iran’s nuclear program and related activities Implement Iran’s JCPoA nuclear commitments in the current context, as confirmed by the Director General’s visit to Tehran on February 20 and 21. We take note of the temporary bilateral agreement between the IAEA and Iran, which will allow access to certain information for up to three months, and we urge Iran to end and reverse all transparency-reducing measures and act promptly ensure full cooperation with the IAEA. Our goal remains to preserve the JCPoA and to support the ongoing diplomatic efforts to find a negotiated solution that will allow Iran and the United States of America to return to full compliance with their obligations under the JCPoA.
