Germany Voices Support for 2015 Deal

TEHRAN ( Iran News ) – Germany voiced its support for a multilateral nuclear deal signed between Iran and world powers in 2015, saying the United States’ move to pull out of the agreement is “regrettable.” In a post on its Twitter page on Monday, Germany’s mission to the United Nations said Berlin “remains fully committed to preservation & full implementation” of the nuclear deal, officially known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and UN Security Council Resolution 2231, which endorses the accord, Press TV reported. It added that the US “withdrawal from the “JCPOA & its reimposed sanctions [against Iran] are regrettable.” The mission further expressed Germany’s concern about measures by Iran “contrary to key nuclear-related provisions in JCPOA,” referring to Tehran’s suspension of some of its commitments under the deal, in response to the failure of the other signatories to live up to their obligations stipulated in the accord.
