EU/Iran — Statement of UN Security Council Resolution 1929 on the Iranian nuclear programme

State­ment by the E3+3 with the sup­port of the EU High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive fol­low­ing the adop­tion of UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil Res­o­lu­tion 1929 on the Iran­ian nuclear pro­gramme
The fol­low­ing state­ment was agreed by the For­eign Min­is­ters of Chi­na, France, Ger­many, Rus­sia, the Unit­ed King­dom and the Unit­ed States, with the sup­port of the High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive of the Euro­pean Union:

“We, the For­eign Min­is­ters of Chi­na, France, Ger­many, Rus­sia, the Unit­ed King­dom and the Unit­ed States, would like to take this oppor­tu­ni­ty to reaf­firm our deter­mi­na­tion and com­mit­ment to seek an ear­ly nego­ti­at­ed solu­tion to the Iran­ian nuclear issue.

The adop­tion of UNSCR 1929, while reflect­ing the inter­na­tion­al community’s con­cern about the Iran­ian nuclear pro­gramme and recon­firm­ing the need for Iran to com­ply with the UN Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil and IAEA Board of Gov­er­nors require­ments, keeps the door open for con­tin­ued engage­ment between E3+3 and Iran.

The aim of our efforts is to achieve a com­pre­hen­sive and long-term set­tle­ment which would restore inter­na­tion­al con­fi­dence in the peace­ful nature of Iran’s nuclear pro­gramme, while respect­ing Iran’s legit­i­mate rights to the peace­ful use of atom­ic ener­gy. We are res­olute in con­tin­u­ing our work for this pur­pose. We also wel­come and com­mend all diplo­mat­ic efforts in this regard, espe­cial­ly those recent­ly made by Brazil and Turkey on the spe­cif­ic issue of the Tehran Research Reactor.

We reaf­firm our June 2008 pro­pos­als, which remain valid, as con­firmed by res­o­lu­tion 1929. We believe these pro­pos­als pro­vide a sound basis for future nego­ti­a­tions. We are pre­pared to con­tin­ue dia­logue and inter­ac­tion with Iran in the con­text of imple­ment­ing the under­stand­ings reached dur­ing the Gene­va meet­ing of 1 Octo­ber 2009. We have asked Baroness Ash­ton, the EU High Rep­re­sen­ta­tive for For­eign Affairs and Secu­ri­ty Pol­i­cy, to pur­sue this with Dr. Saeed Jalili, Sec­re­tary of Iran’s Supreme Nation­al Secu­ri­ty Coun­cil at the ear­li­est opportunity.

We expect Iran to demon­strate a prag­mat­ic atti­tude and to respond pos­i­tive­ly to our open­ness towards dia­logue and negotiations.”
