Germany: Slim chance of nuclear-free North Korea if Iran deal is broken — German FM

German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel urged the US to not break the nuclear deal with Iran, since it would make North Korea unlikely to comply with an international treaty concerning its nuclear programme, when speaking from a press conference in Berlin on Monday. Gabriel stated that calling the Iran deal into question — the «only deal that allows worldwide renunciation of nuclear weapons... Еще» — would damage the possibility of North Korea agreeing to a new deal. Gabriel expressed Germany's willingness to increase diplomatic pressure on Tehran, but was firm in stating that «we don't want the nuclear agreement to be damaged.» Gabriel also expressed hope in an improvement of Germany-Turkey relations, on the condition that «those who are innocently imprisoned are released.» With regards to the Catalan referendum crisis in Spain, Gabriel stressed the importance of dialogue «without preconditions.» The nuclear deal with Iran, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), was signed in 2015 by the P5+1 group (China, France, Germany, Russia, the UK, and the US) and the European Union.
