MP Assured of EU’s Commitment to JCPOA

A lawmaker expressed confidence that the 2015 nuclear deal would hold even in the event of the US pullout, citing the EU’s unwavering support for the international agreement.
“Even if the US withdraws from JCPOA, the Europeans will remain committed to it,” Alireza Rahimi said in a talk with ICANA on Monday.
JCPOA stands for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the formal name of the accord, clinched with major powers to grant Iran sanctions relief in return for scaling down its nuclear development.
“The remarks so far by EU’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, suggest that even if the US pulls out of the action plan, the EU will remain committed and consider itself responsible for the continued implementation of the action plan. This ensures the sustainability of the JCPOA,” he said.
US President Donald Trump has railed against the Iran deal, negotiated under his predecessor Barack Obama, describing it as “the worst deal ever negotiated”.
Trump has even vowed to tear it up during the runup to last year’s presidential vote, but later backtracked on that promise and said he would instead seek a full review of the action plan.
The European powers, however, have refused to go along with Trump’s call for JCPOA’s revision.
