The European Union must take measures to protect core provisions of the nuclear deal with Iran, EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker said in an interview on Saturday.
“The termination of the Iran agreement by the US doesn’t benefit global peace,” he told the Hannoversche Allgemeine newspaper, adding that “As co-architects of the Iran deal, we must defend its core,” Sputnik reported.
He said the 2015 pact to have Tehran wind down its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions easing should not be sacrificed for the sake of US domestic political expediency.
