‚ÄčThe Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), agreed in July 2015, verifiably ensures that Iran is not able to produce a nuclear weapon, and as such is the best means of neutralising the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran. Iran is abiding by its commitments under the deal, as confirmed by the International Atomic Energy Agency in each of its reports, the most recent of which was produced on 22 February. We are working closely with our partners to maintain the JCPoA, including through ensuring Iran continues to meet its nuclear commitments in full.
