11th JCPOA joint commission to be held March 16 in Vienna

IRNA – Deputy foreign ministers of Iran and the P5+1 countries are supposed to convene in Vienna on March 16 to hold the 11th JCPOA joint commission meeting.

This is while, the US has always been after violating Iran nuclear deal and Iran has filed complaints on this issue.

European powers are supposed to gather in Berlin a day before the mentioned meeting to notify the American officials of its commitments to the nuclear accord.

Iran for its part, since the Implementation Day, has honored its commitments under the JCPOA and the Agency’s reports on verification and monitoring of JCPOA in Iran for the tenth time provides strong evidence to such commitment. However, the implementation of the commitments of other sides to the JCPOA, in particular the United States is disappointing and unacceptable. Indeed, by limiting Iran’s benefits from the deal the US Government in contradiction with both letter and spirit of the agreement, particularly paragraphs 26, 28 and 29 of the JCPOA, has taken a destructive approach to undermine “successful implementation” of the JCPOA. The US non-compliance with its commitments under the JCPOA has not only undermined this international agreement, but also has put the US credibility for any international deal under serious question. As the Director General has rightly pointed out, the failure of the JCPOA would be a great loss for multilateralism, Iran’s Ambassador to the UN nuclear watchdog Reza Najafi earlier said.

Meanwhile, Iranian envoy to the UK Hamid Baeidinejad said in a interview with Japanese media Kyodo News that “Tehran is to file complaint over the US violation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).”
