Iran accuses Europe of ‘racism’ over nuclear deal move

Iran’s foreign minister says Britain, France and Germany have shown “racism” by activating a dispute mechanism in the 2015 nuclear deal.

In a televised speech in Tehran, Mohammad Javad Zarif slams the “illusion” that “only the blue-eyed” can benefit from international law.

In the face of “repeated violations by the United States and Europe, Iran does not have the right to use Article 36 (of the deal) despite several written notifications to European officials,” Zarif says, without elaborating how Iran has been denied that right.

“We do not accept such racism,” he adds.
