Merkel: It is not right cancelling "nuclear deal" with Iran now

Germany to Increase NATO Defense Spending Amid US Pressure to Pay Fair Share Germany plans to increase defense spending

Merkel described the deal as "everything other than ideal", but argued that global nuclear authorities said Iran was sticking to its commitments.

Mogherini says "there was awareness of the urgency" and the four ministers agreed to find some solutions within weeks.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the country is committed to fulfilling its global responsibilities.

On May 11, Merkel criticized the decision of US President Donald Trump to withdraw the United States from the agreement with Iran, as she said, 'it is wrong to unilaterally cancel a pact unanimously approved by the Security Council of United Nations'.

Major European powers have sought to keep Iran in a landmark global nuclear agreement after President Donald Trump pulled the USA out of the pact and promised tough economic sanctions against Tehran.

Germany pushed back against Washington's rejection of historic Iran nuclear deal on Wednesday, saying the accord helped world leaders deal with concerns it has with the Islamic Republic.

Meanwhile, Tehran is looking for guarantees from Europe that the deal can continue without the USA and warned it could restart its nuclear programme if talks fail.

"The civil war in Syria and the fight against Islamic terrorism have escalated into a regional conflict of an enormous scale, which can not be resolved without Russia, Turkey, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and, I would say, Europe", Merkel said in the Bundestag.

But she said that despite the disagreements between Washington and its European allies over the deal, "transatlantic relations are and remain of paramount importance".

Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said his meeting with European Union officials in Brussels had been a good start, but he wanted to see guarantees materialise.
