That this House recognises that the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) was a landmark agreement providing a comprehensive, negotiated solution for limiting the Iranian nuclear programme, contributing to peace and stability in the surrounding region, and showcasing cooperation between Iran and the P5+1; 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 JCPOA; 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 obligation to the deal; and further calls on the Government to maintain its commitment to the deal as outlined in the E3 Statement of 12 January 2020.
