Great Britain: We will prevent Iran from acquiring a nuclear weapon in collaboration with partners

British Foreign Minister James Cleverly said on Friday that he had discussed with his counterparts in the United States, Germany and France what Iran’s continued nuclear escalation poses a “threat” to international security.

“We will continue to work with international partners to ensure that Iran does not get a nuclear weapon,” he added on his Twitter account.

Iran and the parties to the agreement, with EU coordination and the indirect participation of the United States, began discussions to revive it in April 2021. Negotiations faltered in early September 2022, with western parties who said the Iranian response to a draft agreement was “not constructive”.

On Wednesday, US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken reiterated that he currently does not see a “near-term chance of moving forward” in reviving the nuclear deal.

In recent weeks, the focus on the nuclear dossier has decreased in public, while Iran has witnessed, since September 16, protests against the death of the young woman, Mahsa Amini, after she was arrested by the moral police for not adhering to strict dress codes.

Western countries supported these protests and imposed sanctions on Tehran for “repression”.

In a related context, European Union Foreign Policy Commissioner Josep Borrell, who is attending the meetings of the seven ministers’ foreign ministers in Mocentre, said the Group of Seven is today discussing continued support for protesters in Iran in in the face of the repression they are subjected to.

Borrell called on Iran to stop its support for Russia, noting that Ukraine had provided the European Union and the Group of Seven prove which confirmed Iran’s arms supply to Russia for use in the war against it.

Borrell indicated that nuclear negotiations with Iran are currently on hold.

Despite recent US and European assurances that nuclear negotiations have reached a standstill due to Iranian intransigence, Iranian Foreign Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian announced that an Iranian delegation will travel to Vienna to complete discussions with the International Atomic Energy Agency on nuclear issues in Tehran file.

Amir Abdollahian confirmed during a press conference in Tehran on Wednesday that he will soon discuss with his European counterpart Josep Borrell the “latest understandings” regarding the negotiations, according to “Agence France Presse”.
