White House: JCPOA Best Way To Address Iran Nuclear Problem

SECURITY

White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre has told reporters that the White House is "disturbed to see crackdowns on peaceful protests in Iran" but the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action nuclear accords remains "the best way for us to address the nuclear problem."

  • Jean-Pierre says, "as long we believe pursuing JCPOA is in national security interest we will do so, but we will continue to use other tools to address other problems with Iran's behaviour."
  • National Security Advisor Jake Sullivan: "Even though we are engaged in nuclear negotiations, we're not going to slow down one inch in our defence advocacy for the rights of Iranian women. Even at the height of the cold war, as President Regan was calling the Soviet Union an 'evil empire' he was also engaged in arms control talks."
  • JCPOA talks seen as critically stalled with few signs of negotiations taking place to revive talks. The US applied additional sanctions on Iran last week for an IRGC attack on Iraqi Kurds.
  • Comes as the UK Foreign Secretary James Cleverly, another participant of JCPOA accords, summons the Iran Chargé d'affaires following escalation of crackdown on protestors.
