Europe, US Reportedly Make Progress in Keeping Nuclear Deal

Europe is making headway toward an agreement to meet Washington's demands concerning the Iran nuclear deal, European diplomats say, raising optimism among American allies that US President Donald Trump can be persuaded not to scrap the agreement.   
“We came out feeling like we are making good progress toward addressing the president’s concerns and coming [up] to an agreement,” a European diplomat told a small group of reporters, speaking on condition of anonymity, Reuters reported on Friday. 
Senior diplomats from the three European nations that are party to the deal met Brian Hook, the US State Department’s director of policy planning, in Washington on Wednesday to try to find a way to salvage the pact, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. 
On January 12, Trump delivered an ultimatum to Britain, France and Germany, saying they must agree to “fix the terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal” within four months or he would refuse to extend the US sanctions relief on Iran that it calls for.
