Iran-P5+1 talks

JCPOA Joint Commission to meet Jan 10 in Vienna: EU

IRNA – The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is to convene on January 10 in the Austrian capital city of Vienna.

According to the website of the European Union (EU), the meeting will review the implementation of the agreement and discuss the issues raised in the letter by the Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif addressed on 16 December to the High Representative, Federica Mogherini, as coordinator of the Joint Commission.

The Joint Commission will be preceded by a meeting of the sanctions working group, the EU wrote in a statement released on Saturday.

Zarif, in a letter to Mogherini, called on the Joint Commission of the JCPOA to convene to address the US breach of the deal.

Zarif’s letter came in reaction to efforts in the US to extend Iran Sanctions Act (ISA) which Iran sees as a breach of a nuclear deal it reached last year with six world powers including the United States.
