Iran launched the dialogue on the future of the nuclear agreement

Iran launched the dialogue on the future of the nuclear agreement

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif hailed as "very good and constructive" the meeting he had on May 15 in Brussels with the European Union's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini.

China and Iran have agreed to uphold the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) - also referred to as the "Iranian nuclear deal" - during Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Zarif's visit to Beijing.

French President Emmanuel Macron has said he wants to secure a wider deal after the USA withdrawal with four pillars: limiting Iran's nuclear program in the short and the long term, restraining its ballistic missile program and curbing what the West views as its destabilizing behavior in Syria, Yemen, Iraq and Lebanon.

He said Trump's withdrawal also meant multiple cases of "significant non-performance" with the nuclear deal, and "clear non-compliance" with resolution 2231 of the UN Security Council, which endorsed the deal.

Mr Johnson revealed on Monday that he would discuss ways to protect them during a meeting with fellow foreign ministers from France and Germany on Tuesday.

Immediately after the announcement of U.S. pullout from JCPOA, EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini emphasized that European Union will stay committed to JCPOA and consequently, UK, Germany and France published a joint statement separately to support Iran's nuclear deal.

Before the tour Zarif reiterated that Iran was preparing to resume "industrial scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" unless Europe provided solid guarantees it could maintain trade ties despite renewed U.S. sanctions. All these nations have expressed interest in keeping the deal intact even without the US.

But European diplomats have sought to play down expectations of Tuesday's meetings, stressing the enormous challenge of finding a way around United States sanctions punishing foreign businesses trading with Iran, which have global reach.

This as European Union leaders prepare to meet on Wednesday to discuss plans to protect European companies doing business with Iran from USA sanctions.

The three European allies and Russian Federation are trying to keep the landmark 2015 accord alive in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump's decision, pushing Moscow into rare cooperation with Europe. He had earlier talked of just two weeks.

"Together, we emphasise our continuing commitment to the JCPOA".

Russian efforts to save the accord will boost its role as a power-player in the Middle East, after its intervention on the side of Bashar al-Assad's regime in Syria.

"We started our work to get assurances from Europe".

Putin stressed that Russian Federation will try to maintain the nuclear agreement.
