The aim was not to reimpose UN sanctions, the diplomats said.
Six European and Western diplomats said previously that Britain, France and Germany had agreed in principle to begin the process but they would still wait to see how significant Iran's steps were before taking a final decision, according to a report by Reuters.
The “dispute resolution mechanism,” is also known as the trigger mechanism and its activation can lead to the return of the UN sanctions against Iran. ■
