Add Your Name: Urgent Call for Lifting Sanctions on Iran

- General Secretary of the UN, Mr António Manuel de Oliveira Guterres
- UK Prime Minister, Mr Boris Johnson
- French President, Mr Emmanuel Macron
- German Chancellor, Mrs Angela Merkel
- High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Mr Josep Borrell Fontelles
- US President, Mr Joe Biden
- Chinese President, Mr Xi Jinping
- Russian President, Mr Vladimir Putin

As state officials from the UK, France, Germany, China and Russia are currently meeting with the Iranian delegation in Vienna for a new round of negotiations on Iran's nuclear program, we the undersigned note and demand the following:

- The United States left the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action  (JCPOA) in 2018, under the pressure from Israel, when Iran was in verified total compliance with its commitments. 

- Iran's nuclear program has proven to be peaceful and no credible evidence has been presented which contradicts the peaceful nature of Iran’s nuclear programme.

- The economic sanctions imposed on Iran by the United States and its European allies is an illegal and criminal act of war on the Iranian population.  It has killed thousands of innocent people, damaged and impeded critical infrastructure  projects and social programmes, and inflicted incalculable suffering on Iranian society.

- Iran and Iranians have been constantly targeted with terrorism and threatened with military attack by Israel and the US, in clear violation of the UN Charter.

- The negotiations on Iran's nuclear program have been constantly exploited by the hegemonic powers to pressure Iran to compromise its security and to surrender its rights of independence and national sovereignty.

We demand:

  • The unconditional return of the United States to the JCPOA as signed in 2015.
  • Removal of all sanctions.
  • Stopping the threats of war.
  • Bringing pressure by the international community upon Israel to join the NPT and for its nuclear arsenal disarmament.
