European governments Friday affirmed full support for continuing the nuclear deal with Iran, hours before US President Donald Trump was due to deliver a speech harshly condemning the Tehran regime.
French foreign affairs’ spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne said the nuclear deal with Iran is a “solid, robust and verifiable tool guaranteeing that Iran will not get the nuclear weapons” He stressed: “Multilateralism is the only way to create a lasting peace.”
She followed the Russian president’s spokesman Dmitry Peskov, who warned that spiking the deal “would undoubtedly hurt the atmosphere of predictability, security, stability and non-proliferation in the entire world.”
The German government said the nuclear deal is an important instrument for preventing Iran acquiring atomic weapons and Berlin would continue to support full implementation.
On Oct. 15, President Trump must decide whether to again certify Iranian compliance with the nuclear accord signed with the US, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China in 2015, after doing so twice before.
