Federica MOGHERINI, High Representative of the Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, at the United Nations - statement at the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) Review Conference, on 28 April 2015.

Overview of the latest EU official documents, publications of the Consortium and publications from the network regarding the 9th NPT Review conference (27 April – 22 May 2015)

“Less than one month ago in Switzerland, together with the Foreign Ministers of Iran, China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK and the US, we reached solutions on key parameters of a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). It has been a very important step in the process to ensure the exclusively peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear programme and the comprehensive lifting of sanctions. Now we need to build on this foundation and finish the challenging task within the set timeframe. A comprehensive solution would enable Iran to fully enjoy its right to nuclear energy for peaceful purposes under the relevant articles of the NPT in conformity with its obligations therein.

An important element of the comprehensive solution will be the need for Iran to fully cooperate with the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regarding all the outstanding issues of concern, including those of the Possible Military Dimensions. The EU calls on Iran to implement the modified Code 3.1 of the Subsidiary Arrangements to its Safeguard Agreement and to bring into force its Additional Protocol. I'm hopeful that these developments will have a positive influence on the atmosphere and proceedings of this Review Conference. And we all know that we need a good Review Conference now more than ever.”
