The leaders of Britain, France and Germany reiterate their commitment to the Iran nuclear deal “as the best way of neutralizing the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran,” Downing Street says Sunday.
Prime Minister Theresa May talked by phone with French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Saturday and Sunday when they agreed the current deal also left out some “important elements,” it says.
“Our priority as an international community remained preventing Iran from developing a nuclear weapon,” it says.
“They agreed that there were important elements that the deal does not cover but which we need to address –- including ballistic missiles, what happens when the deal expires, and Iran’s destabilizing regional activity.
“They committed to continue working closely together and with the US on how to tackle the range of challenges that Iran poses –- including those issues that a new deal might cover.”
