Upon the request of France, Germany, the United Kingdom and Iran, the Joint Commission of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) held an extraordinary meeting on 28 July 2019. The talks were held in the context of rising tensions in the Persian Gulf, following the seizure of tankers by Britain and Iran and Iran’s admitted breach of the terms of the JCPOA restricting its production of enriched uranium. The parties reaffirmed their commitment to preserving the JCPOA, however nothing substantive was agreed. Iran’s Deputy Foreign Minister, Abbas Arahchi, stated: “The atmosphere was constructive. Discussions were good. I cannot say that we resolved everything, I can say there are lots of commitments”.
