Lavrov: US sanctions on Iran should not destroy JCPOA

Lavrov: US sanctions on Iran should not destroy JCPOA

Germany's Angela Merkel said in a statement that Iran's nuclear deal "should never be called into question" and vowed on Wednesday that Germany, France, and Britain would "do everything" to ensure that Iran remains in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.

France's foreign minister said that the 2015 nuclear restraint deal with Iran was "not dead" despite Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out from the agreement, and added that French President Emmanuel Macron would speak later in the day to Iranian counterpart Hassan Rouhani.

The attacks were carried out under the pretext of responding to alleged rocket strikes by Iranian forces based in Syria on Israeli positions in Israeli-occupied Golan Heights, the Russian military said.

Trump pulled out of the 2015 pact and promised to reinstate USA sanctions because he does not believe that the agreement prevents Iran from getting atomic weapons.

Serbian and Russian presidents Aleksandar Vucic and Vladimir Putin and Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu laid wreaths at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Moscow.

The Iran Deal is a bad deal for America and a bad deal for our allies.

Iran is continuing to implement its nuclear commitments under a deal with major powers, the United Nations atomic watchdog policing the deal says, a day after President Donald Trump said the USA was pulling out of the accord.

"We are extremely concerned that the United States is once again acting contrary to the opinion of the majority of states and exclusively in its own narrow-minded and opportunistic interests, in flagrant violation of global law", said the Foreign Ministry statement.

As such, with Israel reportedly eliminating most of Iran's military infrastructure in Syria in the airstrikes on Thursday, this could further strengthen Russia's concerns as it eliminates a potential future competitor in Syria.

Maas said attacks by Iranian forces were a provocation and that Israel had the right to self-defence. We reached no understanding here.

"It is unbelievable, but 73 years after the Holocaust, there is a country in the Middle East-Iran-that is calling for the destruction of another 6 million Jews", stated Netanyahu. "The Europeans should not have to pay for the withdrawal of an agreement by the United States, to which they had themselves contributed", he said. Moscow, he said, could use its influence on Tehran to that end.

"They want to build a second Hezbollah-stan", he said, referring to the Iranian-backed Lebanese Shiite militant group that last fought a war with Israel in 2006.
