500 European Lawmakers Tell US Congress to Save Nuclear Deal

More than 500 parliamentarians from the UK, France, and Germany published an open letter on Thursday calling on the US congress do all it can to keep the 2015 Iran nuclear deal alive and "protect the fruits of successful diplomacy."
"Together, Europeans and Americans have proved that a strong and united transatlantic partnership can bring about a coalition extending to Russia and China, endorsed by the international community," the lawmakers wrote. "But this coalition is now at risk, as the US government moves towards abandoning the [nuclear deal] without any evidence of Iran not fulfilling its obligations," Common Dreams reported.
"Abandoning the deal would diminish the value of any promises or threats made by our countries. It would also diminish our capability to keep Iran nuclear-free after the expiration of the special provisions of the JCPOA," the letter reads. "If we maintain our alliance now, we will be in the position to keep Iran's nuclear aspirations in check in the long run."
