EU FOREIGN POLICY CHIEF, FEDERICA MOGHERINI, AND IRANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MOHAMMAD JAVED ZARIF ARRIVING FOR STATEMENT
(SOUNDBITE) (English) EU FOREIGN POLICY CHIEF, FEDERICA MOGHERINI, SAYING:
"Good evening and as usual thank you for your presence, your work and your patience. Today, we have achieved Implementation Day of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Ever since adoption day we worked hard and showed mutual commitment and collective will to finally bring the JCPOA to implementation. Today, almost exactly six months after the finalisation of this historic deal the International Atomic Energy Agency has verified that Iran has implemented its nuclear-related commitments under the JCPOA. As Iran has fulfilled its commitments today multinational and national economic and financial sanctions related to Iran's nuclear programme are lifted in accordance with the JCPOA. The EU and E3+3 countries consisting in the People's Republic of China, the Republic of France, the Federal Republic of Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the United States of America and Iran will also cooperate in the fields of peaceful uses of nuclear energy in the framework of the JCPOA. UN sanctions related to Iran's nuclear programme are lifted. The United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231 of 2015, which endorsed the JCPOA, will from now onwards together with the treaty of non-proliferation of nuclear weapons be the sole international legal framework related to Iran's nuclear activities, terminating provisions of resolutions 1616 of 2006, 1737 of 2007, 1747 of 2007, 1803 of 2008, 1835 of 2008, 1929 of 2010 and 2224 of 2015. The European Union has confirmed that the legal framework providing for the lifting of its nuclear related economic and financial sanctions is effective. The United States today is seizing its application of nuclear related statutory sanctions on Iran, including terminating relevant executive orders and licensing of certain activities, as specified in JCPOA. The European Union and the United States have issued relevant guidelines on the details of sanctions which have been lifted, thus facilitating international engagement in Iran's economic development. As foreseen we will continue to thoroughly monitor and oversee the full and effective implementation of the JCPOA exactly as agreed on 14 July 2015 through the joint commission consisting of the E3+3 and Iran and coordinated by the high representative on the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy. On it's side, the IAEA is entrusted with the responsibility for the monitoring and verification of the JCPOA as well as of Iran's obligation as a party to non-proliferation treaty and it safeguards agreements and the provisional application of its additional protocol. We would like to use this opportunity to thank the Austrian government for their hospitality and all those countries that supported the negotiation process and helped to implement some of the commitments under the JCPOA. We also wish to express our appreciation to all those who led this negotiations on behalf of the Islamic Republic of Iran and the E3 EU+3 since 2003. All sides remain firmly convinced that this historic deal is both strong and fair and that it meets the requirements of all. Its proper implementation will be a key contribution to improve regional and international peace, stability and security. This achievement clearly demonstrates that with political will, perseverance and multilateral diplomacy we can solve the most difficult issues and find practical solutions that are effectively implemented. This is an encouraging and strong message that the international community must keep in mind in our efforts to make a world a safer place. I thank you."
(SOUNDBITE) (English) IRANIAN FOREIGN MINISTER, MOHAMMAD JAVED ZARIF, SAYING:
"I'm going to do what I always do, read in Persian exactly what she said in English, so don't worry about requiring translations. but before I begin let me thank you all for having waited several hours for both of us to come and appear before and apologise for having kept you waiting since, probably hours ago. Now, I will just read it in Persian."
