Russia and France in a joint plan for Iran
The two powers will make anything to afford that Tehran maintains the agreement
Through the Kremlin press office after a telephone conversation, on September 7, the Russian President Vladimir Putin, and his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron have expressed a willingness to cooperate on a possible joint global action plan to ensure that Iran maintains the pacts of the 2015 nuclear agreement (see AVIONEWS): Tehran has entered the "third phase" of the disengagement and has rejected the restrictions on atomic research activities.
The Iranian nuclear pact was signed between Iran and six international mediators (United Kingdom, Germany, China, Russia, United States and France) in July 2015. On this occasion the Islamic Republic had undertaken to curb its nuclear activities and had accepted to submit them to the total control of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in exchange for abandoning the sanctions previously imposed by the United Nations Security Council, the European Union and the United States on its nuclear program. Iran had promised not to enrich uranium above the 3.67% level for 15 years and had accepted the request to maintain stocks of enriched uranium at a level not exceeding 300 kg, as well as not to build new reactors .
