EghtesadOnline: The launch of the nuclear deal’s dispute resolution mechanism by France, Germany and Britain is the European way of keeping tabs on both Iran and the US, responding to Tehran’s reduction of nuclear commitments while stalling until the 2020 US presidential vote before deciding to reimpose global sanctions on Iran, a former diplomat said.
EghtesadOnline: The three European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal on Tuesday referred Iran’s compliance issue to the agreement’s Joint Commission under the dispute resolution mechanism set out in paragraph 36 of the accord, formally called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
EghtesadOnline: The United States has set up a trap for European parties to the Iran nuclear deal by pushing to trigger the agreement's dispute resolution mechanism that could lead to the restoration of United Nations’ sanctions on Iran, a foreign policy expert said.
EghtesadOnline: The European signatories to the 2015 nuclear deal cannot afford to trigger sanctions snapback because it is Iran's "redline" and would cause a collapse of the agreement and undermine security in Europe, a political analyst says.
EghtesadOnline: European parties to the 2015 nuclear deal are not authorized to use the dispute resolution mechanism within the agreement because Iran’s nuclear measures have been adopted based on its legitimate rights, an Iranian top diplomat said, in response to comments by France that it is seriously considering triggering the mechanism.
