No: 129, 9 May 2018, Press Release Regarding The Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action

Republic Of Turkey Ministry Of Foreign Affairs 09.05.2018

Turkey has always maintained that diplomacy and negotiations are the only way to resolve the problem on Iran’s nuclear program and made intensive efforts to this end at the time.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), which was adopted in 2015, is a significant step taken in the area of non-proliferation. The Plan demonstrated that even the toughest challenges could be resolved through negotiations.

All periodic reports of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), mandated to monitor the implementation of the deal in accordance with the United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231, confirm Iran’s compliance with the deal. We thus consider the decision of the US to withdraw from the JCPoA as an unfortunate step.

We continue to believe that any issue should be addressed in appropriate fora, through the appropriate mechanisms and diplomatic means. The Joint Commission mechanism foreseen in the JCPoA should be operational in resolving issues regarding the Plan.

The JCPoA should be preserved and implemented fully and without interruption, in a transparent manner and under the monitoring of the IAEA.
