Foreign Office minister James Cleverly has  said the international community should not overlook Iran’s breaches of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action).

The Biden administration has said it is ready to join talks with Iran and world powers to discuss a return to the 2015 nuclear deal, whilst the UK has previously said it is open to a new deal with Iran.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson will today chair a virtual meeting of the leaders of the G7 where the subject of the Iran nuclear deal is expected to be raised.

Speaking to BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Cleverly said it is up to Tehran to start adhering to the treaty it signed.

He added: “It is absolutely right that Iran must come back into compliance with the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action). We’ve called upon them to do so.

“Ultimately it is in their hands. They are calling for the international community to ease sanctions and that kind of stuff, but ultimately that is in their hands.”

On whether sanctions should be lifted to “unlock” talks, he added: “I don’t think that we should be sending a signal that we are going to overlook this non-compliance or just brush it under the carpet.

“This is in Iran’s hands. They are the ones breaching the conditions of the JCPOA. They are the ones that can do something about this and they should come back into compliance.”

Iran: ‘No deal’ is better than a ‘bad deal’ if Boris is to join Biden in new agreement with Tehran
