Europe Will Offer “Package of Initiatives” to Save JCPOA

Britain and its European partners have prepared “a package of initiatives”  to protect the landmark 2015 Iran nuclear agreement after the US withdrawal from the deal, British Prime Minister Theresa May told President Hassan Rouhani.
In a telephone call on Sunday the British prime minister told Rouhani that “three European foreign ministers will present Iran’s foreign minister [Mohammad Javad Zarif] with a “package of initiatives” to protect implementation of the JCPOA when they meet in Brussels on Tuesday,” president.ir reported.
JCPOA is the official name of the agreement—to which Britain, China, France, Germany and Russia are also signatories. The US was also a signatory but pulled out on May 8.
“Both leaders agreed on the importance of continued dialogue between the two countries, and looked forward to the meeting of UK, German, French and Iranian foreign ministers in Brussels where they will be joined by the EU’s foreign affairs High Representative Federica Mogherini to discuss the international nuclear deal and future steps,” according to a readout of the call issued by May’s office.
