German Chancellor Angela Merkel said that the EU does not want an «escalation» of tensions over Iran's nuclear programme, at a press conference in the Romanian city of Sibiu on Thursday. The press conference was held following the Informal Summit of Heads of State or Government of the European Union.
Merkel also stressed that Tehran must recognise that staying committed to the nuclear deal would... Еще be an «added value» for Iran.
The summit focused on future challenges and priorities for the EU, with some attention reportedly given to the Brexit process and discussions about European unity. The meeting took place two weeks before the 2019 European parliamentary elections.
