Today, Wednesday, the French Foreign Ministry called on Iran to immediately stop its unprecedented nuclear activities, considering that the administration of Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi, with its words and actions, creates doubts about its intentions.
“The actions and words of the new Iranian administration put into question its intention to return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action” on its nuclear agreement, said French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Agnes von der Muhll, in a statement today, Wednesday.
“France reiterates its readiness to return to negotiations in Vienna on the nuclear agreement at any time,” she added.
Iran refuses to negotiate
Von der Muhll stated that “Iran refuses to negotiate and is taking actions that further obstruct the return to the JCPOA.”
The French Foreign Ministry spokeswoman indicated that the visit of the European Coordinator for the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, Enrique Mora, to Tehran on Thursday comes in light of a crisis and a critical moment for the future of the nuclear agreement.
She said that her country reaffirms its readiness to return to the Vienna negotiations at any time, and calls on Iran to clarify its position.
She added that France was “deeply concerned about Iran’s non-compliance with its commitments to the International Atomic Energy Organization,” calling on Iran to “invite the Director of the International Atomic Energy Agency to visit Tehran with the aim of holding talks at the highest level.”
