Tehran (ISNA) - Britain, France and Germany told the U.N. Security Council on Friday that U.N. sanctions relief for Iran - agreed under a 2015 nuclear deal - would continue beyond Sept. 20, when the United States asserts that all the measures should be reimposed.
In a letter to the 15-member body, seen by Reuters, the three European parties to the nuclear deal and long-time U.S. allies said any decision or action taken to reimpose U.N. sanctions â€śwould be incapable of legal effect.â€ť The United States quit the nuclear deal in 2018.
â€śWe have worked tirelessly to preserve the nuclear agreement and remain committed to do so,â€ť said the U.N. envoys for Britain, France and Germany, adding that they remain committed to â€śfully implementingâ€ť a 2015 Security Council resolution that enshrines the pact, which also included Russia and China.
