Europe's support for the Iran nuclear deal will contribute to efforts to promote security in the Middle East, says the head of the Strategic Council on Foreign Relations. 
"Europe's backing for the JCPOA is not limited to the key  international agreement, rather it also benefits regional security," Kamal Kharrazi, a former foreign minister, said in a meeting with Niels Annen, minister of state at Germany's Federal Foreign Office, in Berlin, Fars News Agency reported on Tuesday.
He was referring to the fact that the European signatories to the 2015 nuclear accord, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, have been trying to salvage it after the United States' unilateral withdrawal in May.  
Kharrazi said Washington is seeking to exacerbate tensions in the region, which will have negative consequences for Europe.
