IRNA – The 15th meeting of the joint commission the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) convened in Vienna at the level of deputy foreign ministers and directors general of P4+1.
The meeting was co-chaired by Iranian Deputy Foreign Minister Abbas Araghchi and European External Action Service Secretary General Helga Schmid.
Representatives of EU, Germany, France, Russia, China, the UK, and Iran are taking part in the meeting.
Schmid wrote on her Twitter account on Tuesday, “In Vienna to prepare first JCPOA Joint Commission of 2020, to continue to oversee the implementation of the agreement.”
She added, “We have a collective responsibility to preserve the Iran Deal.”
Although the three European members of the deal have requested to activate the dispute resolution mechanism of the deal, the Wednesday meeting does not pertain to issue.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said that the Wednesday meeting of the 2015 nuclear deal’s Joint Commission would be an ordinary session and has nothing to do with E3’s dispute resolution mechanism.
Ignoring all their JCPOA commitments, France, Germany, and the UK tried to exploit the dispute resolution mechanism and force Iran to be loyal to all its commitments.
Iran has repeatedly announced that if it enjoys the interests mentioned in the international agreement, it will go back to its commitments.
