Iran nuclear deal joint commission meets in Vienna without US

The Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action held its first meeting in Vienna on yesterday since the establishment of the European Union’s so-called special purpose vehicle designed to facilitate trade with Iran. The meeting was hosted by Helga Schmid, Secretary General of the European External Action Service, and attended by representatives from China, France, Germany, Russia, Britain and Iran. The meeting was held without the United States, which endorsed the nuclear deal with Tehran during the Obama administration but withdrew from it under President Donald Trump in spite of the EU’s repeated calls for it to remain in the deal. Since the U.S.’ withdrawal in May last year, some other countries involved, including major European powers such as Germany, France and Britain, have tried to keep the deal alive. In a statement after the meeting, all parties reiterated their commitments to upholding and implementing the Iran nuclear deal and enhancing coordination in this regard.
