Vladimir Putin, Emmanuel Macron reaffirm support of Iran nuclear deal

Russia and France have no intention of following Trump’s lead on ramping up tension with Iran

(Sputnik) – Russian President Vladimir Putin and French President Emmanuel Macron reaffirmed their support of the implementation of the Iran nuclear deal during phone talks on Thursday, the Kremlin’s press service said.

“Vladimir Putin informed Macron about the results of his trip to Iran. In this context, the leaders spoke in favor of a thorough implementation of the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action to resolve the situation around the Iranian nuclear program, stressing the inadmissibility of a unilateral revision of this crucial agreement” the press service said in a statement.

Earlier, US President Donald Trump refused to officially confirm to the US Congress that Iran is in compliance with the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (commonly referred to as “Iran nuclear deal”).

Every other party to the P5+1 group that brokered the historic deal in 2015 remains committed to the deal, which stipulates the gradual lifting nuclear-related sanctions imposed on Tehran in exchange for assurances that its nuclear program would remain peaceful. EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini said earlier that the EU is committed to the continued full and effective implementation of all parts of the JCPOA. German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel also said that Berlin would try to persuade the US Congress to keep the deal.
