Motion text

That this House is deeply concerned by the decision of 8 May 2018 by the President of the United States of America to withdraw the US from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and re-impose economic sanctions on the Islamic Republic of Iran; is disappointed that this decision was made despite the International Atomic Energy Agency's confirmation that Iran is in full compliance with the JCPOA; believes that President Trump's decision will undermine progress towards the normalisation of relations between Iran and Western governments and will threaten peace, security, and stability in the Middle East; notes that the erosion of the JCPOA will serve to undermine international attempts to curb nuclear proliferation and could seriously hamper the opportunity to deliver a denuclearised Korean Peninsula; expresses regret about the damage this decision will do to the credibility of and trust in multilateral agreements; commends those countries, including the UK, that have reaffirmed their commitment to the JCPOA; and calls on the Government to use its influence in Washington to urge the US to reconsider its approach to the JCPOA and to uphold its commitments to the deal, Iran, and the wider region.
