<p>Update of JCPOA Information Note</p>


Following President Trump's announcement on 08/05/2018 that the US will withdraw from the JCPOA and re-instate previously lifted sanctions, the EU will update its Information Note on EU sanctions to be lifted under the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The EU has emphasized its continued commitment to the full and effective implementation of the JCPOA.

In this regard, it has also stressed its commitment to ensuring that the positive effects of sanctions-lifting on trade and economic relations between Iran and the EU should continue, notwithstanding the US announcement.

For information on related recent European Commission activities please consult the 18/05/2018 and 06/06/2018 press releases.

Until the updated Information Note's publication the current version, accessible in all EU official languages here, remains valid.
