Hind Al Soulia - Riyadh - European powers will trigger the dispute mechanism in the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran after Tehran’s failure to comply with the accord.

France, the UK and Germany accused the Iranian regime of continuous violations of “key” restrictions of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, which was supposed to limit Iran’s nuclear capacity. They said they had “no choice, given Iran’s actions” to refer the case to the dispute resolution mechanism.

“Iran’s actions are inconsistent with the provisions of the nuclear agreement and have increasingly severe and non-reversible proliferation implications,” a statement by the three countries known as the E3 said.

Germany foreign minister Heiko Maas said the E3 "could no longer leave the growing Iranian violations of the nuclear agreement unanswered”.

European chief diplomat Josep Borrell, who is chair of the nuclear deal, said the E3 move was not designed to re-impose UN sanctions but to bring Tehran back into compliance.

"The JCPoA is a significant achievement of sustained multilateral diplomacy following years of negotiations," he said.

"In light of the ongoing dangerous escalations in the Middle East, the preservation of the JCPoA is now more important than ever," he added.

The mechanism allows two weeks for ministers to resolve any problems, although that period can be extended if all sides agree. If needed, an advisory board would have an extra 20 days to adjudicate.

Last week Iran announced a further reduction in its compliance as it discarded the last key limitations in the JCPoA.

It says this is a reaction to US President Donald ’s decision to withdraw from the nuclear deal and re-enact sanctions on Tehran.

Despite Mr Trump urging the E3 to withdraw from the “remnants” of the JCPoA, the three countries said their “overarching objective” remained to preserve the pact and “way forward to resolve the impasse through constructive diplomatic dialogue”.

“In doing so, our three countries are not joining a campaign to implement maximum pressure against Iran. Our hope is to bring Iran back into full compliance with its commitments under the JCPoA,” they said.

The E3 said they had made it clear on December 6 they would have to take action via the dispute resolution mechanism unless Iran reversed its actions.
