United Nations Security Council: Opening remarks by High Representative/Vice-President Josep Borrell (Excerpts)

May 28, 2020

Weapon Program: 

  • Nuclear

Related Country: 

  • United States


Let me reiterate the enduring importance of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action – the so-called JCPOA - with Iran. As you know, I am the Coordinator of the Joint Commission and I am determined to do everything to ensure full and effective implementation and, in particular, Iran’s return to full compliance.

The agreement remains essential to ensure the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear programme. This is why I have to regret yesterday’s decision by the United States not to prolong the waivers for the JCPOA-related nuclear projects.
