  • German And Iranian Foreign Ministers Discuss Nuclear Agreement

The EU, Britain, France and Germany discussed and agreed on joint actions to save the nuclear deal with Iran, said a European high representative for foreign Affairs and security policy Federica Mogherini after talks with Iranian foreign Minister Javad Zarif.

The Joint Commission meeting on May 25 will see the deputy foreign ministers of Iran, Russia, China, Germany, Britain and France "address the Iran's concerns regarding USA withdrawal from the JCPOA and necessary guarantees for salvaging the deal", the diplomat said, speaking on condition of anonymity.

Russia's Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov said on Wednesday Russia supported a European Union proposal to hold a meeting on the Iran nuclear deal in Vienna next week, Interfax news agency said.

After announcing the U.S. withdrawal on May 8, Trump, a long-term critic of the deal, signed a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating United States economic sanctions on Iran.

European Union overseas affairs chief Federica Mogherini stated the EU's three greatest states had "reaffirmed our resolve" to uphold the deal even with out America.

"We will have to see whether our remaining participants in the JCPOA can deliver those benefits to Iran, " he said.

Rather than using the money to aid domestic turmoil, Fox News reports the Iranian government invested this money into their ballistic missile program, and provided additional aid to Hezbollah, a terrorist organization in Lebanon actively attempting to eradicate the Jewish people. "We are on the right track ... a lot will depend on what we can do in next few weeks", he said.

When he quit the deal last week, Trump gave businesses a maximum of six months to wind up operations in Iran or face swingeing penalties under American sanctions.

"The objective of these negotiations - the Foreign Minister continued - is to seek reassurance that the interests of the Iranian nation will be defended". "He has made us realize that if you need a helping hand, you will find one at the end of your arm", Tusk said in an acid-tongued press statement in Sofia.

"We have no illusions about Iran's disruptive behaviour, but we think we can tackle those in other ways outside the JCPOA". "But, she added, 'with the nuclear deal in place we have better chances to address any other issues we have to address with Iran".

To that end, the so-called E-3, Germany, France and the United Kingdom, will meet with Iranian officials over the coming two weeks.

The European Commission has been examining measures to counter the introduction of any USA sanctions that might harm European businesses and is expected to unveil them to EU leaders at a summit in Sofia, Bulgaria, on Wednesday.

The European Union together with Britain, France and Germany support further implementation of the nuclear agreement with Iran, despite the United States decision to withdraw from it.
