Britain, France and Germany Condemn Expansion of Iran’s Nuclear Program

Paris-- The governments of Germany, France and Britain condemned the recent steps taken by Iran, represented in raising the level of uranium enrichment to 60%.

The governments of the three countries made it clear in a joint statement issued on behalf of their foreign ministries that Iran's decision to increase production increase concerns, constitutes a challenge to the global non-proliferation regime, and entails great proliferation threats that have no credible civil justification.

The three European countries said in the statement that Iran's actions are more troubling since five months ago it stopped implementing all transparency measures related to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran.

The statement also stressed that Iran is legally bound by the Non-Proliferation Treaty to fully implement its safeguards agreement, indicating that it will continue to consult alongside international partners on the best ways to address Iran's ongoing nuclear escalation.
