A Federal Foreign Office Spokesperson issued the following statement today (16 January) on the first anniversary of Implementation Day of the Vienna agreement on the nuclear programme of Iran:
One year after Implementation Day, we note that Iran has complied, and remains in compliance, with the terms of the agreement. This is a significant contribution to greater security in a region that is beset by so many crises and conflicts.
Strong technical restrictions and comprehensive monitoring by the International Atomic Energy Agency ensure that Iran’s nuclear programme is and remains exclusively peaceful. It is important that the agreement be strictly implemented, since this a key prerequisite for building mutual confidence.
We have every interest in working to ensure that the agreement’s provisions, which we believe are suitable and are having an effect, remain in force.
