Merkel: It is not right cancelling "nuclear deal" with Iran now

German And Iranian Foreign Ministers Discuss Nuclear Agreement

On May 11, Merkel criticized the decision of US President Donald Trump to withdraw the United States from the agreement with Iran, as she said, 'it is wrong to unilaterally cancel a pact unanimously approved by the Security Council of United Nations'.

"There was awareness of the urgency", Mogherini said after the meeting in Brussels.

"If we want to save this deal, we know that the sooner we manage to do it the better and the easier it will be".

He also said Iran would not surrender to USA pressures. "We will all save it together".

Before the meeting, Boris Johnson, the UK's foreign secretary, said: "the United Kingdom and our European partners continue to view the nuclear deal as vital for our shared security, and remain fully committed to upholding it".

Speaking as he left the meeting, Zarif said: "We are on the right track ... a lot will depend on what we can do in next few weeks".

Theresa May also challenged Mr Trump on the impact that sanctions could have on United Kingdom firms doing business in Iran during a phone call last week.

Because thanks to him we have got rid of all illusions.

Many Europeans, like Ms. Tocci, believe that the unstated American aim is "regime change" in Iran, something that the British and French foreign ministers, Boris Johnson and Mr. Le Drian, have specifically ruled out as a European goal.

Mogherini agreed at the end of a long day of diplomatic meetings.

"They said that they would ensure Iran enjoys the benefits of the JCPOA and they accepted that the implementation of the JCPOA has nothing to do with other issues", he said, referring to Iran's demand that talks on saving the deal must not be linked to pressure on its missile programme and regional interventions.

Iran reiterated it would not surrender to US pressure and would resist USA "plots", following President Donald Trump's abandonment of the 2015 agreement last week.

However on Tuesday the USA hit Iran's central bank governor with sanctions. "We did discuss the possibility of applying our blocking statute".

Prime Minister Theresa May will be present when talks on the issue continue tomorrow evening at an European Union leaders summit in Sofia, Bulgaria.

-The ones who are going to do business with Iran and invest in Iran are the European private sectors and governments can not force them to work with Iran.

The regulation, which has been brandished as a threat in the past but never used, was drawn up more than 20 years ago and would have to be revised.

While she noted that the European Union can not provide legal and economic guarantees to Iran after the USA withdrew from the accord, she noted that the European Union and the Iranian side would continue to work "seriously and decisively" to keep investment flowing.
