JCPOA center of int'l multilateralism

Tehran, Sept 12, IRNA - EU's support for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action concurrent with the unilateral actions of the Trump administration shows that JCPOA today cause has become an international center of multilateralism against unilateralism.

While the international political climate is severely critical as a result of unilateral measures taken by Trump government and its security team at the White House, JCPOA continues to function as an international stabilization force.

The IAEA Director General, Yukiya Amano, said on Monday at the first day of Board of Governors' meeting at Vienna that Iran has fulfilled its commitments.

Amano added in a statement to the meeting that the Agency will continue to verify and non-diversion of Iran's nuclear material under the Safeguards Agreement.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), in its report earlier this month, reaffirmed that Iran had complied with its obligations under the 2015 nuclear deal. The IAEA's new report for the twelfth time since its launch and for the second time since the United States departure confirms this agreement that Iran's nuclear actions and activities are fully in line with this agreement.

Amano report was announced when Trump government was trying to increase the scope of its announced sanctions.

Meanwhile, after the announcement of a unilateral withdrawal of the United States on May 8 from JCPOA, many countries in the world, including the signatories to the agreement, have been trying to maintain their commitment to the agreement.

The EU's foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, yesterday reaffirmed that the body would continue to defend a nuclear deal with Iran. Mogherini at the General Assembly of the European Parliament on relations between the United States and the United States stated that the two sides 'have a major difference in multilateralism.'

'That is why we are advocating a nuclear accord with Iran, the Paris Agreement on Climate Change, financing the basic activities of all UN agencies,' she said, stating that the EU wants 'to maintain and strengthen multilateralism.'

Mogherini's remarks is referring to two key points and a strategic consequence: first, the gulf between the differences between US and its European allies have been severely and seriously deepened, so that not only is the issue of nuclear consensus on its core broken now, but also other serious issues such as the climate agreement of Paris and the differences in international organizations and institutions, especially the United Nations, have made this gap more profound.
