Iran Task Force

Relations between Iran and the European Union (EU) are coordinated via the Iran Task Force based at the European External Action Service (EEAS) headquarters in Brussels. The Iran Task Force was established following the nuclear agreement of 14 July 2015, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action - JCPOA between the E3/EU+3 and Iran.

The Task Force supports the EU High Representative Josep Borrell in his role as coordinator of the Joint Commission responsible for overseeing the implementation of the JCPOA. It also coordinates and develops a coherent framework for bilateral engagement with Iran in close cooperation with the European Commission services.

The EU does not currently have a Delegation in Iran. It is therefore represented by the member state holding the Presidency of the Council of the EU. Currently the EU is represented by the Embassy of Croatia until 30 June 2020 followed by the Embassy of Germany until 31 December 2020.
