Germany, France vow to stick to Iran deal

Germany and France have vowed to stand by the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers even if the United States pulls out. In a joint press conference with his French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian in Berlin, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said, they do not think there is any justifiable reason to pull out of this agreement. He said they will deal with the US decision.

The French Foreign Minister said, France, Germany and Britain are determined to save the deal as the accord safeguards against nuclear proliferation and is the right way to stop Iran getting a nuclear weapon.

US President Donald Trump is to announce tonight his decision on whether to withdraw from the deal. He said in a tweet yesterday. Ever since his election campaign, Mr Trump has described the Iranian nuclear agreement, as bad. The deal, he said, does not prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons.
