Asian, European FMs Support JCPOA

Foreign ministers attending the Asia–Europe Meeting have backed the multinational deal on the Iranian nuclear program, calling on all the parties to honor their obligations under the landmark agreement. Myanmar’s capital Naypyidaw hosted the 13th summit of ASEM, an Asian–European political dialogue forum aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two continents. The event, held on Monday and Tuesday, was joined by the European Union foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and as many as 51 foreign ministers, Press TV reported. In a final statement, the participants “underlined their strong support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” that was signed in 2015 between Iran and the six major powers, namely the US, Russia, China, France, Britain and Germany. The ASEM foreign ministers also called for “the continued and full implementation of JCPOA by all sides”.  Apart from the US under President Donald Trump, the deal’s signatories and the EU, which coordinated the talks leading to the accord, have stood by the deal, describing it as a triumph of diplomacy and a contributor to regional and international security.
