  2. The European Union would like to thank the Director General for his report, and Deputy Director General Aparo for the technical briefing on 12 November 2020.
  3. The EU expresses its resolute commitment to and continued support for the JCPOA. We are determined to continue working with the international community to preserve the JCPOA. The strategic importance of the agreement remains and its full implementation is essential. It is a key element of the global nuclear non-proliferation architecture and it is crucial for regional, European and international security. The EU calls on all countries, in line with United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 (2015), to support the implementation of the JCPOA and to refrain from undermining implementation of commitments under the JCPOA.
