The US President had previously announced the withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), adding that the sanctions against Tehran would be re-imposed. However, Germany confirmed its commitment to the Iranian deal, siding with the EU, France, China, Russia, France and the UK on the issue.
President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal is no reason to call into question relationships between Europe and the US, German Chancellor Angela Merkel stated on Friday. Merkel also said that options to save the deal without the United States needed to be discussed with Tehran.
Previously she noted, that the decision of the US President hurts international relations.
“Nevertheless, I think it is not right to unilaterally cancel a deal that was agreed, that was unilaterally approved in the U.N. Security Council. That diminishes confidence in the international order.”
