  • Germany to US: Europe United on Preserving Iran Deal
    Europe is still “very, very united” on continuing to support Iran’s nuclear deal, says German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas.

    Mass made the remarks on Wednesday during a meeting with US National Security Adviser John Bolton. “Europe is very, very united in its position on the nuclear accord with Iran, and that will not change… We don’t want a proliferation of nuclear weapons in our expanded neighborhood,” he said.

    Maas noted that European countries share concerns about Iran’s missile program, but believe that such issues should be addressed without undermining the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

    Mass also met with US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo where he suggested a four-way meeting with Germany, Britain, France and the United States concerning the deal.

    “I think we’re far away from a compromise” with the US, Maas noted, adding, “We’re pursuing two completely different paths.”
