US withdrew from the JCPOA in 2018 and can no longer call on its mechanisms, EU foreign policy chief said.

According to Ibena, Since the US unilaterally withdrew from the agreement, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), it cannot be considered a part of it, the official added on Sunday.

"Given that the US unilaterally withdrew from the JCPOA in May 2018 and has not participated in any JCPOA structures or activities subsequently, the US cannot be considered as a JCPOA participant," a spokesperson for EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said, according to dpa news agency.

"We therefore consider that the US is not in a position to resort to mechanisms reserved for JCPOA participants [such as the so-called snapback]."

A day earlier, President Donald Trump told reporters that Washington will pursue the “snapback” option in the coming week, after the U.S. lost a bid at the UN Security Council to extend the arms embargo on Iran.
