Referring to the E3’s 14 January decision to trigger the JCPOA’s dispute resolution mechanism, Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif asserted that “if the Europeans take another step [and send Iran’s nuclear dossier to the UN Security Council], Iran will consider leaving the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)”. Zarif further indicated that “Iran is designing a new and more effective step that will be taken in case the Europeans do not fulfill their responsibilities to the deal and continue their claims before leaving NPT”.
