EU, US Poles Apart on Nuclear Deal

Europe does not have a favorable view of the United States policy on the Iran nuclear deal, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif said Tuesday, noting that Washington's anticipated pullout will be met with an "unpleasant" response from Tehran and the international community. 
"In yesterday's meeting of the European Union foreign ministers, it was (again) clear that Europe does not have a very positive view of US policies in this regard," Zarif told reporters in Tehran when asked about the fate of the 2015 nuclear agreement, IRNA reported. 
He was referring to EU ministers’ discussions in Luxembourg on Monday in which they avoided any agreement on new sanctions against Iran amid Italy’s opposition and fears that punishing Tehran for its missile program and regional role would not stop US President Donald Trump from abandoning the nuclear deal. Iran says its missiles are for defensive purposes.   
Some diplomats say the outcome of the EU ministers meeting might not make the US president’s May 12 deadline to “fix” the nuclear accord, Reuters reported.
