After US Withdrawal, Iran and Europe Seek United Front on Nuclear Deal

16 May 2018, 12:56 | Glen Norman

Iran's foreign minister said he had a constructive meeting with EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini on Tuesday, and he was optimistic Iran's interests in the nuclear deal could still be preserved despite the USA withdrawal from the pact.

U.S. President Donald Trump said last week that the United States would withdraw from the deal, a landmark agreement signed in 2015 by Iran, Russia, the United States, Britain, China, France and Germany.

However, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov, speaking on May 15 at a meeting in Moscow of the Valdai Discussion Club - a gathering of Russian and worldwide foreign policy experts - said it would be impossible to preserve the deal without Tehran making concessions, the Interfax news agency reported. He reportedly added, "If the remaining five countries continue to abide by the agreement, Iran will remain in the deal despite the will of America". "Our talks (with the E3) will continue in the next two weeks", he said, referring to Britain, France and Germany.

Zarif was due to hold talks later in Brussels with the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany.

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif is heading out this week on a global tour of major countries, trying to secure diplomatic cooperation from other nations.

Trump shot back, claiming in a tweet on Saturday that Tehran had exploited the lifting of sanctions to bolster its military and increased its defence spending by 40 percent since 2015, when the pact was agreed.

Zarif said European powers must give Iran guarantees that it will get the economic benefits of the deal, warning there was not much time for them to deliver those assurances.

He said he believed both sides were "on the right track" to make sure that the interests of the deal's "remaining participants, particularly Iran, will be preserved and guaranteed".

European companies could still face big fines, asset seizures and even criminal charges in the US.
