Bibi Lobbies Germany, France, UK over Alleged ’Iranian Nuclear Archive’
Commenting on Zionist Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's accusations, Iranian Defense Minister Amir Hatami dismissed them as "Israel's" provocative actions and promised that Tehran would respond.
According to his office, "Netanyahu discussed regional issues with world leaders and also updated them on the important material that he revealed regarding the Iranian nuclear archive."
While Netanyahu alleged that Tehran is maintaining a nuclear weapons program despite signing the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action [JCPOA], Iran responded, stressing that the Zionist entity is manipulating Washington's policies to drag the United States into a war with Iran that the occupation regime could start but could not finish.
For its part, the European Union expressed concern over Washington's threats to exit the historic agreement, with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron visiting the US last week in a reported attempt to "rescue" the Iranian nuclear deal.
Following Netanyahu's speech, the White House claimed in a statement on April 30, that the US backed "Israel's" efforts and called the details gathered by "Israeli" intelligence "compelling."
Meanwhile, US President Donald Trump, who has been a long-time critic of the Iran Nuclear Deal, reiterated he would not rule out a US withdrawal from the agreement, while other states, including France and the United Kingdom, have insisted on the preservation of the accords.
Moscow, for its part, announced that it would continue to uphold its commitments under the deal if it is able to and if maintaining adherence to the JCPOA is in Russia's interests.
On July 14, 2015, the European Union and the P5+1 group of countries - Russia, the US, France, China and the UK plus Germany - signed the JCPOA with Iran. The deal designates a gradual lifting of anti-Tehran sanctions in exchange for the Islamic Republic conserving the peaceful nature of its nuclear program.
