  • US cannot use snapback against Iran: Schmid

The Secretary-General of the European External Action Service stressed that the US cannot resort to the snapback mechanism for returning sanctions against Iran.

Iran PressEurope: In a tweet on Friday, Helga Maria Schmid pointed to the US unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA in 2018 and said that it cannot be considered a participant state for the purposes of possible sanctions snapback foreseen by the UN Security Council resolution 2231.

"EU will continue to do everything to ensure the preservation and full implementation of Iran's deal," she stressed.

"After the US formally withdrew from JCPOA in 2018, it cannot be considered a participant state for the purposes of possible sanctions snapback foreseen by the UNSC resolution 2231. EU will continue to do everything to ensure the preservation and full implementation of Iran's deal," she added.

The reaction was after the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that a formal request has been sent to the UN Security Council to ‘snap back’ sanctions against Iran, claiming Tehran violated the 2015 nuclear deal that Washington has unilaterally ditched.
