Iran nuke deal dispute mechanism triggered

France, Britain and Germany have confirmed they have triggered the dispute mechanism in the Iran nuclear deal given its ongoing violations, but say they are not joining the US campaign to exert maximum pressure on Tehran.

"We have therefore been left with no choice, given Iran's actions, but to register today our concerns that Iran is not meeting its commitments under the JCPoA (Iran deal) and to refer this matter to the Joint Commission under the Dispute Resolution Mechanism, as set out in paragraph 36 of the JCPoA," the three European states said in a joint statement.
