European Mission to Defend Iran Pact

The United States’ close allies, namely the UK, Germany and France, who have been growing frustrated after months of lobbying to keep the Iran nuclear deal intact, have formed a united front.
They have organized a joint mission to travel to Washington this week, setting up their own meetings to ramp up the pressure on the US, according to a senior diplomatic source from one of the participating countries, CNN reported.
The team of senior European diplomats will meet members of the US Congress, the State Department and possibly at the White House on Thursday and Friday, the source said.
The visit continues an extended pressure campaign by key European nations, which has included visits from senior figures, including the EU foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, and UK’s Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, to protect the Iran nuclear deal in the face of hostility from US President Donald Trump who wants the agreement to be changed or canceled.
His stance has alarmed supporters of the multinational pact, who argue that it serves global security interests to lift sanctions on Iran in exchange for curbs on its nuclear program.
