"France, Germany, and the UK regret the US decision to leave the JCPOA. The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake," Macron wrote in a Twitter message.

Earlier on Tuesday, Trump announced that Washington would pull out of Iran nuclear deal and reinstate nuclear sanctions on Iran.

In the meantime, most world powers including Russia, China, and European Union stressed that keeping the deal is in the interest of world peace and security.

Besides, High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini expressed regret over the decision, saying the European Union is to comply with the full implementation of the deal.

"The European Union regrets today's statement by the President of the United States on the nuclear deal with Iran [Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, JCPOA].
 Should the US reconsider this position," she said minutes after the US President Donald Trump announced his unilateral decision.

"As long as Iran continues to implement its nuclear related commitments, as it is doing so far, the EU will remain committed to the continued full and effective implementation of the nuclear deal. We fully trust the work, competence and autonomy of the International Atomic Energy Agency that has published 10 reports certifying that Iran has fully complied with its commitments," The European External Action Service [EEAS] quoted Mogherini as saying in reaction to the statement by the US president regarding the Iran nuclear deal.

For its part, the International Atomic Energy Agency [IAEA] also confirmed 11 times that Iran has been committed to its obligations under the nuclear deal.

Relatively, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Tuesday that he has ordered the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran [AEOI] to be ready for resuming nuclear enrichment at the industrial level.
