US President Joe Biden has promised that if his administration renews compliance with the Iran nuclear deal, Washington won’t leave it unless Iran clearly violates its terms, according to a joint statement issued today with European leaders, The Guardian reports.

The statement is issued after a meeting Biden held with Germany’s Angela Merkel, France’s Emmanuel Macron and Britain’s Boris Johnson on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Rome.

“We welcome President Biden’s clearly demonstrated commitment to return the US to full compliance with the JCPOA and to stay in full compliance, so long as Iran does the same,” the statement says, using the deal’s official name.
