Representatives from China, France, Germany, Russia, Britain and Iran will meet virtually on Friday to discuss the possible United States return to the Iran nuclear deal, a the European Union (EU) announced on Thursday.
In a brief statement, he announced a meeting of the Joint Commission for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), called the Iran nuclear deal, Aljazeera reported.

“Participants will discuss the prospect of a possible return of the United States to the JCPOA and how to ensure the full and effective implementation of the agreement by all parties,” the official statement said.

The online meeting will be chaired by Deputy Secretary General and Political Director of the European External Action Service Enrique Mora, on behalf of the EU High Representative, Josep Borrell.

The JCPOA was concluded in 2015 between Iran and the P5 + 1 (the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council – the United States, Great Britain, Russia, France, China and Germany) and the EU. Tehran has agreed to cut parts of its nuclear weapons program in exchange for lower economic sanctions.

According to Aljazeera News, Washington under former President Donald Trump withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 and tightened sanctions against Iran. The United States and Iran are at an impasse over relaunching the nuclear deal. The Joe Biden administration has said that if Iran returns to full compliance with the JCPOA, the United States will do the same. But Iran has insisted that its compliance will only come after the US sanctions are lifted.

Biden sought to engage Iran in talks on resuming both parties’ respect for the deal, under which the United States and other economic sanctions against Tehran were lifted in exchange for restrictions on the program. Iranian nuclear power plant.
