UK calls JCPOA Joint meeting in Vienna as productive

London, A senior British diplomat, who is in Vienna for the 11th JCPOA Joint Commission meeting, said on Wednesday that the meeting was good and productive.

Caroline Hurndall, the Head of Iran-Iraq Department at Foreign and Commonwealth Office, said in her official Twitter account that all parties are committed to continuing to implement the 2015 Iran nuclear deal (JCPOA).

The meeting, which began at 9:40 o'clock local time, was held at the level of political directors and deputy foreign ministers of Iran and E3+2 (Germany, the UK, France, Russia and China).

Secretary General of EU's External Action Service Helga Maria Schmid who chaired the meeting said in her twitter account earlier in the day that today's meeting is the first since the adoption of INSTEX.

She said that both Iran and the E3+2 countries are committed to implementation of JCPOA.

Vienna meeting was held on Wednesday while the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed Iran's commitment to JCPOA for the 14th time last week.
