The JCPOA’s Joint Commission convened and reviewed “ongoing work to preserve the JCPOA and how to ensure the full and effective implementation of the agreement by all sides in light of existing challenges”. Iran’s representative, referring to domestic legislation mandating the expansion of nuclear activities, said that his government “is committed and obligated to carry out the measures… after legal procedures”, further asserting that “Iran cannot afford to pay the whole costs of implementation of the JCPOA and the unlawful behaviour of others”. He also underscored that Iran “is ready to resume honouring its JCPOA commitments… after the U.S.’s return to its JCPOA commitments and restoration of the situation to what is was in January 2017”.
