US: Iran's return to JCPOA necessary, but not enough

United States State Department Spokesperson Ned Price stated that Iran's return to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) is "necessary, but it’s not sufficient." He stressed a number of issues will remain, including Iran's "ballistic missile program, support for proxies and terrorist groups, and human rights, among others."

"We do see a return to compliance as necessary but insufficient, but we also do see a return to compliance as enabling us to take on those other issues diplomatically, working with our P5+1 allies and partners as well as our regional partners, from a position of strength. If we are able to put Iran's nuclear program back into the box, if we're able to ensure it is once again subject to the strictest verification and monitoring regime ever negotiated, we will be able more effectively to take on these other areas of concern," Price explained.
