The E3/EU+3 (China, France, Germany, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom
and the United States, with the High Representative of the European Union for
Foreign Affairs and Security Policy) and the Islamic Republic of Iran welcome this
historic Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), which will ensure that Iran’s
nuclear programme will be exclusively peaceful, and mark a fundamental shift in
their approach to this issue. They anticipate that full implementation of this JCPOA
will positively contribute to regional and international peace and security. Iran
reaffirms that under no circumstances will Iran ever seek, develop or acquire any
nuclear weapons.
Iran envisions that this JCPOA will allow it to move forward with an exclusively
peaceful, indigenous nuclear programme, in line with scientific and economic
considerations, in accordance with the JCPOA, and with a view to building
confidence and encouraging international cooperation. In this context,

followed by a gradual evolution, at a reasonable pace, of Iran’s peaceful nuclear
programme, including its enrichment activities, to a commercial programme for
exclusively peaceful purposes, consistent with international non-proliferation
The E3/EU+3 envision that the implementation of this JCPOA will progressively
allow them to gain confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran’s
programme. The JCPOA reflects mutually determined parameters, consistent

programme, including enrichment activities and R&D. The JCPOA addresses the
E3/EU+3’s concerns, including through comprehensive measures providing for
transparency and verification.
The JCPOA will produce the comprehensive lifting of all UN Security Council
sanctions as well as multilateral and national sanctions related to Iran’s nuclear
programme, including steps on access in areas of trade, technology, finance, and
