P5+1 Plea

P5+1 Plea  P5+1 Plea

The so-called P5+1 (the five permanent members of the UN Security Council plus Germany) urged for the need to continue full cooperation between the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and Iran, in a bid to resolve all remaining issues before sealing a final deal, including those related to the “possible military dimensions” of Iran’s nuclear program.  The plea was made in a statement issued by the P5+1 on the sidelines of the ongoing 2015 NPT Review Conference in New York last Thursday, IRNA said, quoting the Kuwait news Agency (KUNA).  “The P5+1 welcome the initial deal with Iran on key parameters in the Swiss city of Lausanne,” said the statement, which also highlighted the P5+1 commitment to continue negotiations till the June 30 deadline, “when a comprehensive settlement would ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s program.”  The P5+1 also welcome Iran’s continuing implementation of its nuclear-related commitments under the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) and the essential role of the IAEA in the verification process, the statement added.
