Iranian physicist killed in a terrorist attack

The terrorist attack in Iran that killed the physicist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh had the main effect of increasing tensions and even the possibility of conflict. We strongly condemn the attack, which seems to have the main goal of putting an obstacle to the restoration of the Joint Comprehensive Plan Of Action (JCPOA), that has been all but killed by the Trump administration. We believe that coming back to the JCPOA is important to avoid further nuclear proliferation in the Middle East.
