Europe Stands By Iran Nuclear Deal

The leaders of Germany, France and the U.K. will stand by the Iran nuclear deal, defying a call from President Donald Trump to abandon the 2015 pact. But they warned Iran that it must comply with the commitments within the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), chiefly, the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said in the statement that “it is essential that Iran return to full compliance with its commitments under the agreement” and expressed “deep concern at the actions taken by Iran in violation of its commitments since July 2019.” The statement comes after EU foreign ministers held an emergency meeting to discuss heightened tensions in the Middle East and how (and whether) to keep the nuclear deal — dealt a severe blow when the U.S. withdrew from it in May 2018 and reimposed sanctions on Iran — alive.
