French envoy in Iran in bid to salvage nuclear deal
    2019-07-11  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A DIPLOMATIC adviser to French President Emmanuel Macron held talks in Tehran yesterday aimed at saving the 2015 nuclear deal and easing tensions between Iran and the United States.

Emmanuel Bonne met Rear-Admiral Ali Shamkhani, secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, and was set to meet with Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif later yesterday.

Bonnes’ mission is “to try and open the discussion space to avoid an uncontrolled escalation, or even an accident,” according to French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian.

The accord between Iran and world powers, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), promised sanctions relief, economic benefits and an end to international isolation in return for stringent curbs on the Islamic Republic’s nuclear program.

But Tehran says it has lost patience with perceived inaction by European countries more than a year after U.S. President Donald Trump unilaterally pulled the United States out of the agreement.

The European parties to the deal along with the EU’s diplomatic chief Tuesday called on Tehran to reverse breaches of the agreement.

Iran “must act accordingly by  returning to full JCPOA compliance without delay,” said a statement from the European Union and foreign ministers of France, Germany and Britain.
