Addis Ababa, 15 October 2017: The Chairperson of the Commission of the African Union (AU), Moussa Faki Mahamat, reiterates the AU’s full support to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA). He recalls that the AU, like many other members of the international community, has highly welcomed the signing of the JCPoA, considering it a triumph for multilateral diplomacy and a vindication of the effectiveness of negotiated resolution of international disputes. He commends all parties to the JCPoA that have, in recent days, reaffirmed their steadfastness and commitment to this critical instrument, as verified by the International Atomic Energy Agency.

The Chairperson of the Commission notes that the JCPoA has contributed significantly to regional stability and renewed the international community’s confidence in the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) and in the global multilateral frameworks. At a time of increased risk of nuclear proliferation and threats to international peace and security, no efforts should be spared to preserve the JCPoA. He stresses the need to promote multilateral approaches as the most viable and effective way for addressing global challenges.
