Iran: Nuclear Power

Question for Foreign and Commonwealth Office

UIN 141664, tabled on 8 May 2018

To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs, what assessment he has made of the observance by Iran of its treaty obligations under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.

Answered on

11 May 2018

The Joint Comprehnesive Plan of Action is the product of 13 years of tireless diplomacy, and it is working, with Iran having reduced its stock of enriched uranium by 95 per cent. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed nine times that Iran is complying with the nuclear deal, most recently in February. The IAEA inspection regime agreed as part of the Iran nuclear deal is one of the most extensive and robust in the history of international nuclear accords. It remains a vitally important way of independently verifying that the deal is working and that Iran's nuclear programme is exclusively peaceful. This is why we are working hard to maintain the deal following the 8 May announcement of US withdrawal.
