Germany, Russia reiterate commitment to Iran nuclear deal

Germany, Russia reiterate commitment to Iran nuclear deal

Russian President Vladimir Putin has spoken with Germany's Angela Merkel and Turkey's Recep Tayyip Erdogan in a bid to keep the Iran nuclear deal alive after the USA decision to withdraw, the Kremlin said yesterday. Trump's actions are throwing the multilateral global order into "real crisis", said Merkel, also citing his withdrawal a year ago from the Paris climate accord and the USA administration's efforts to sidestep global trade rules. "The importance of preserving the deal from a point of view of worldwide and regional stability was highlighted", the Kremlin said in a statement following the call.

Merkel also spoke by telephone on May 11 with Russian President Vladimir Putin with efforts to preserve the deal the main topic of discussion, according to both Berlin and Moscow.

The two leaders also discussed the situation in Syria as well as Merkel's planned working visit to Russian Federation next week, the Kremlin said.

"The main goal of these attacks, supported by the United States, is to divert public opinion from the behavior of the American president (and) his decision to leave the agreement", added Boroujerdi, referring to President Donald Trump's decision this week to withdraw the United States from the 2015 Iran nuclear accord.

After long negotiations, Iran agreed in July 2015 to freeze its nuclear programme in return for the lifting of punishing global sanctions.

Merkel said earlier Friday that it was not right to unilaterally annul the nuclear deal, which was unanimously approved by the UN Security Council.
