World Europe leaders issue joint statement attacking Trump’s withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal


According to Independent

The UK, France and Germany have issued a joint statement assailing President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw the US from the nuclear deal with Iran.

Moments after Mr Trump said he would abandon the pact, resisting overtures from European nations who had urged him to preserve America’s commitment,

UK Prime Minister Theresa May, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron said the decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal was a matter of “regret and concern” but they remained committed to the deal.

They said: “It is with regret and concern that we, the leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom take note of President Trump’s decision to withdraw the United States of America from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA).

“Together, we emphasise our continuing commitment to the JCPoA. This agreement remains important for our shared security.
