They separately met with Secretary General of European External Action Service (EEAS) Helga Schmid, as well as Chinese and Russian delegations.
The sixth meeting of the commission was held in Vienna in January and the participants emphasized the need for all relevant parties to honor their obligations under the JCPOA, particularly those related to the lifting of anti-Iran sanctions.
In a press release that was issued after the meeting, the Joint Commission said that "all sides reaffirmed their strong commitment to continue full and effective implementation of the JCPOA.”

Under the agreement, limits were put on Iran’s nuclear activities in exchange for, among other things, the removal of all nuclear-related bans against the Islamic Republic.
