Merkel on Iran Deal: We Experienced Setback in EU-US Relations
Local Editor

German Chancellor Angela Merkel commented on the recent developments around the Iran nuclear deal in light of the recent US withdrawal from it.

Merkel revealed that the European Union has been experiencing discord in the union's relations with the US after the latter withdrew from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], speaking at a congress of the Confederation of German Trade Unions [DGB].

After months-long warnings, US President Donald Trump recently fulfilled his presidential campaign promise, announcing that Washington would withdraw from the JCPOA and vowed to re-impose economic sanctions against Tehran.

The move was taken despite the fact that the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] repeatedly confirmed Tehran's compliance with the deal. 
 
A week earlier, Washington urged what it called "responsible" countries around the world to use more pressure on Iran to halt its "destabilizing activities in the Middle East," since the "Iranian regime's reckless actions pose a severe threat to regional peace and security." 

The other signatories of the agreement, namely China, Germany, France, Russia and the United Kingdom, haven't followed Trump's stance, rather expressing their commitment to the deal, saying that they consider the accord vital.

The agreement, considered to be Barack Obama's diplomatic victory, was signed on July 14, 2015, and specified the gradual lifting of anti-Iranian sanctions in exchange for Tehran curbing its nuclear program and allowing inspections to ensure that the nature of the program is peaceful.
