Joint Parliamentarians' Initiative On The Iran Nuclear Deal

EDM number 1143 in 2017-19, proposed by Hilary Benn on 28/03/2018.
Categorised under the topics of Arms control, Iran and North America.

That this House notes with concern the possibility that the US Administration could move towards abandoning the Iran Nuclear Deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JPCOA); believes that this would undermine what has been achieved in controlling Iran's nuclear programme and damage both our credibility as international partners in negotiation and the pursuit of diplomacy as a means of promoting peace and ensuring security; asserts that weakening the deal would make it more difficult to keep Iran nuclear-free after the expiry of the special provisions of the JCPOA; and therefore expresses its support for the joint initiative from French and German Members of Parliament to urge members of the US Congress to stand by the Iran Nuclear Deal.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
