What Was The Nuclear Agreement With Iran

24 September 2018: The foreign ministers of China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and EU Foreign Affairs Chief Federica Mogherini meet in New York to discuss the implementation of the JCPOA. Participants decided to set up an assignment vehicle “to facilitate payments related to Iran`s export (including oil) and imports that will help and reassure economic operators who engage in legitimate activities with Iran. According to the U.S. Assistant Secretary for Legislative Affairss Julia Frifield, “JCPOA is not a contract or executive agreement and is not a signed document. The JCPOA reflects the political commitments between Iran, the P5-1 and the EU. [63] 24 January 2020: Josep Borrell Fontelles, EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, announces the extension of the 15-day deadline for members of the JCPOA Joint Commission (UK, France, Germany, Russia, China, THE EU and Iran) to resolve issues of non-compliance with the dispute settlement mechanism of the agreement. E3 triggered the dispute settlement mechanism on 14 January and the 15-day period for discussions in the Joint Commission can theoretically be extended by mutual agreement for an indefinite period. On July 23, 2015, a hearing on the JCPOA was held before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. U.S. Secretary of State Kerry, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and Energy Secretary Moniz were reckless. [191] Republican Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, chairman of the committee, said in his opening speech that at the beginning of the discussions, the goal was to dismantle Iran`s nuclear program, while the agreement codified “the industrialization of their nuclear program.” [265] [266] Corker addressed Kerry and said, “I think you fled” and “what you did here is you made Iran a pariah in Congress now – Congress is a pariah.” [246] Corker stated that a new threshold had been crossed in U.S. foreign policy and that the agreement would “allow a public sponsor of terror to maintain a sophisticated industrial nuclear development program that, as we know, has only a real practical need.” [267] Senator Benjamin Cardin of Maryland, the most senior Democratic member of the Committee, said that he had many questions and that he hoped the answers would provoke a debate “in Congress and the American people.” [267] Democrats, led by California Senator Barbara Boxer, voted in favor of the deal, boxer said Republican criticism was “ridiculous,” “unfair” and “false.” [191] [246] Corker and Cardin sent a letter to Obama saying that the bilateral IAEA-Iran document should be available to Congress for consideration.

[246] The Roman Catholic Church voted in favour of the agreement.
