25.11.2013 / 17:03
The Czech Republic takes a positive note of the fact that the negotiations between the EU High Representative, E3+3 (USA, Russia, China, Great Britain, France and Germany) and the Islamic Republic of Iran in Geneva, November 20-24, led to the signing of an interim agreement on limiting Iran’s nuclear program for a period of six months and that they adopted a Joint Plan of Action in order to achieve a comprehensive solution to the Iranian nuclear issue. However, for this to succeed, more progress will be needed both inside and outside the negotiating room.
The Czech Republic believes that the Islamic Republic of Iran will in the course of the six months' period honor its commitments: That it will allow the IAEA inspectors to resolve all the remaining issues concerning Iran's nuclear program, including full access to the heavy water reactor in Arak and to the military installations of Parchin; and that it will cease its activities at the Natanz and Fordow Fuel Enrichment Plants and halt the uranium enrichement beyond 5%.
