Iran Nuclear Accord Parties Meet to Try to Salvage Deal
Thursday, 27 February 2020 19:05 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The remaining members of the floundering Iran nuclear deal are set to meet in Vienna Wednesday for the first time since Germany, France, and Britain initiated dispute procedures that could reimpose U.N. sanctions on Tehran.

The talks come as the signatories try to rescue the landmark 2015 accord, which has been faltering since U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally withdrew from it in 2018 and enforced crippling sanctions on Iran.

It will be attended by senior diplomats from Iran, Britain, France, Germany, China, Russia, and the EU.

They have promised to uphold the deal that saw Iran agree to reduce its program of developing nuclear weapons in exchange for an easing of sanctions, even without Washington's support.

However, since the U.S. withdrawal, Iran has stepped up its program in defiance of Washington™s œmaximum pressure campaign.œ

Iran has since breached its main limitations, exceeding the stockpiles of heavy water and uranium allowed, the number and types of centrifuges it can operate to enrich uranium, and the purity of uranium.
