After US, EU responds to the Iran nuclear deal

BRUSSELS - The top European Union diplomat, Federica Mogherini, on Tuesday called on the international community to stick to the Iran nuclear deal despite U.S. President Donald Trump announcing he was pulling out and would reimpose sanctions on Tehran.

“I am particularly worried by the announcement tonight of new sanctions,” Mogherini said.

“The European Union is determined to preserve it,” she said of the world powers’ 2015 agreement with Tehran. “Together with the rest of the international community, we will preserve this nuclear deal.”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday, U.S. President Donald Trump took a brave and correct decision to cancel the nuclear deal with Iran , which was “a recipe for disaster.”

Netanyahu said in a two-minute televised address in Hebrew and English that the current deal was “a recipe for disaster, a disaster for our region, a disaster for the peace of the world.”
