Britain, France and Germany condemn the expansion of Iran’s nuclear programme

Today the governments of Germany, France and Great Britain condemned the recent steps taken by Iran, represented by the increase of the uranium enrichment level to 60%.

The governments of the three countries have clarified in a joint statement issued on behalf of their respective foreign ministries that Iran’s decision to increase production raises concerns, challenges the global non-proliferation regime, and carries major proliferation-related risks that have no credible civilian justification.

The three European countries said in the statement that Iran’s actions are more disturbing as it stopped implementing all transparency measures related to the JCPOA five months ago.

The statement said Iran is legally bound by the Non-Proliferation Treaty to fully implement its safeguards agreement, indicating it will continue to consult with international partners on the best ways to deal with nuclear escalation in course of Iran.
