EU Economic Package to Save Nuclear Deal Disappointing

In phone talks with German and French leaders on Thursday, President Hassan Rouhani said Europe's package of economic measures to preserve the Iran nuclear deal after the US exit is "disappointing" and does not fully meet Tehran's demands.  
"Unfortunately, the proposed package lacked an action plan or a clear roadmap for continuation of cooperation and only included some general promises like previous EU statements," Rouhani told German Chancellor Angela Merkel, the president's official website reported. 
"After the US pullout from the JCPOA, certain problems have emerged in the fields of economy, banking and oil, and companies that have invested in Iran are now hesitant about continuing their activities," he said, calling the current proposal "disappointing". 
The president expressed hope that a ministerial meeting scheduled in Vienna on Friday would succeed in finding a solution to save the accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action.
