Iran, UK discuss mutual cooperation within JCPOA framework
IRNA

Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif and his British counterpart Dominic Raab reviewed Tehran-London cooperation within the framework of the 2015 nuclear deal officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Speaking in a telephone conversation late on Monday local time, the two further exchanged views on issues of mutual interest, including bilateral relations, IRNA reported.

Zarif and Raab also had a phone call in October.

Iran signed the JCPOA with six world powers (five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and Germany known as the Group 5+1). Based on the JCPOA Iran agreed to curb its nuclear program in return for sanctions relief.

However, US President Donald Trump withdrew his country from the JCPOA in May 2018, calling it “the worst deal ever negotiated.” He also reinstated unilateral economic sanctions against Iran after leaving the multilateral agreement in defiance of United Nations Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 2231 that enshrined the nuclear agreement.
