Communiqué issued by the Presidency of the Republic

Élysée Palace, Paris - July 2, 2019

The President has noted with concern that Iran has exceeded the stockpile limit for low-enriched uranium authorized by the Vienna agreement (JCPOA), as the International Atomic Energy Agency established today.

He reiterates his determination for the terms of the 2015 nuclear agreement to be fully complied with, asks Iran to reverse this step immediately and refrain from any further measures which would undermine its nuclear obligations.

In the next few days, the Head of State will pursue the initiatives he has begun in order to ensure Iran complies fully with its obligations and continues benefiting from the agreement’s economic advantages.

Joint statement issued by the Ministers of Foreign Affairs of France, Germany, the UK and the European Union High Representative

July 2, 2019

In a joint statement France, Germany, the United Kingdom and the European External Action Service said:

The Foreign Ministers of France, Germany, the UK, and the High Representative are extremely concerned at Iran’s announcement that it has exceeded the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action stockpile limit for low enriched uranium. The International Atomic Energy Agency has confirmed this information.

We have been consistent and clear that our commitment to the nuclear deal depends on full compliance by Iran. We regret this decision by Iran, which calls into question an essential instrument of nuclear non-proliferation.

We urge Iran to reverse this step and to refrain from further measures that undermine the nuclear deal. We are urgently considering next steps under the terms of the JCPoA in close coordination with other JCPoA participants.
