Russia's foreign ministry said in a statement that Europe's remarks about the use of trigger mechanism did not match their claims to adhere to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

Iran PressEurope: The statement, released on Monday evening, said that the foreign ministers of Germany, France, and Britain issued a statement on June 19 expressing their assessment for the implementation of the JCPOA. Some clauses in the statement raise issues about the intentions of European partners in this regard.

The statement said that the Russian side has always valued the efforts of the two countries, Germany and France, members of the European Union, and the United Kingdom, in resolving issues to maintain JCPOA.

Russia's foreign ministry says the main cause of all the problems and shortcomings in the implementation of the nuclear deal with Iran has been the disruptive US actions, which unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA and continues to violate the provisions of Security Council Resolution 2231. European capitals also seem to understand this because they considered as necessary to remind their demands, aspirations, and concerns.

However, claims by British, German and French partners in adherence to the JCPOA and the search for solutions that could reduce the negative effects of US sanctions on Iran are not compatible with their efforts to intensify situation surrounding the nuclear program in the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and their statements regarding the launch of the trigger mechanism in accordance with Article 36 of the JCPOA.

The European Troika resolution against Iran was approved by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) on Friday, despite strong opposition from China and Russia.

In the resolution, the three European countries, Britain, Germany, and France, with the support of the United States, called on Iran to provide access to IAEA inspectors to the two nuclear sites and to cooperate fully with them. 207/209
