Germany: Berlin determined to keep Iran nuclear deal alive — FM Maas

German FM Heiko Maas denounced US president Donald Trump's recent decision to pull out of the Iranian nuclear agreement (JCPOA) in Berlin, Wednesday, stating that the US has nothing to offer to replace the agreement. Speaking to the press, Maas also reaffirmed Germany's commitment to keep the agreement, pointing out that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has confirmed that Iran is... Еще sticking to the nuclear deal. «The international Atomic Energy Agency confirmed that Iran has been sticking to the agreement. That's why we want to keep the control and transparency mechanisms of the agreement,» stated Maas. «We are for securing the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear programme. This applies even more as it is not clear what the US suggests that could replace the agreement to prevent Iran verifiably from developing nuclear weapons and that's what this is all about,» he added. US President Donald Trump announced his decision to withdraw from the JCPOA, more commonly known as the Iran nuclear deal, on Tuesday. After the announcement he signed a Presidential Memorandum re-instating US sanctions against Iran that had been waived when the deal was signed in July 2015.
