Leaders of Germany, France and Britain on Sunday appealed to Iran not to violate the 2015 nuclear deal. Prominent leaders of these countries made this appeal after declaring Tehran not to follow the limits of enrichment. German Chancellor Angela Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron and British Prime Minister Boris Johnson issued a joint statement.
“We appeal to Iran to withdraw all steps that are not in conformity with the nuclear deal,” the joint statement said, suggesting that the US retreat and re-ban the multilateral agreement with Iran. In response to the imposition, Iran also announced strict measures. Iran had announced the finalization of its fifth step related to the withdrawal from the nuclear deal. Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Abbas Mousavi said in a televised statement, “The decision regarding the fifth step has already been taken … but the current situation is being considered.” Some important changes will be made in the important meeting to be held tonight (Sunday night). ‘
Iran angry over General Sulaimani’s murder
Let me tell you that Iran has vowed revenge after the killing of Major General Suleimani (62) in Baghdad in the US drone attack on Friday. The deputy chief of Iraq’s Hashd Al Shaabi paramilitary force has also been killed in this attack. At the same time, US President Donald Trump has warned Iran that if it takes any retaliation to avenge the death of its top military commander Qasim Sulemani, it will be attacked with the strongest attack ever.
Emphasis on reducing tension between US-Iran
Seeing the growing tension between the US and Iran, the leaders said, “It is necessary to reduce the tension. We appeal to the parties involved to behave with utmost restraint and responsibility. ”After the Iraqi parliament passed a proposal to repatriate thousands of US troops, European leaders appealed not to jeopardize the fight against IS jihadists . It is in this context that maintaining an (anti-IS) coalition is of paramount importance. We demand Iraqi officials to continue to provide necessary support to the coalition. ”US troops were called by the Iraqi government in 2014 to fight IS in Iraq. The statement was released a few hours after these three leaders spoke on the phone.
