EU rejects Iran’s nuke ‘ultimatums’

BERLIN: European countries said on Thursday they wanted to preserve Iran’s nuclear deal and rejected “ultimatums” from Tehran, after Iran scaled back curbs on its nuclear programme and threatened moves that might breach the pact. Iran announced steps on Wednesday to ease curbs on its nuclear programme, in response to new US sanctions imposed after Washington abandoned the deal a year ago.
“We reject any ultimatums and we will assess Iran’s compliance on the basis of Iran’s performance regarding its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA and the NPT,” read a statement issued jointly by the EU and the foreign ministers of UK, France and Germany.
The JCPOA refers to the 2015 nuclear deal, and NPT to non-proliferation treaty that bans countries from developing nuclear weapons.
