Merkel: Europe can't rely on United States protection anymore

Macron to Merkel: 'Don't wait, act now' for Europe Merkel: Europe can't rely on United States protection anymore

German business representatives widely condemned U.S. President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday night.

Merkel made a similar appeal a year ago, following visits by President Donald Trump to her country and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance in neighboring Belgium.

Berlin and Paris called for this Thursday containment to Israel and Iran to avoid an escalation in region.

"The Chancellor underlined that Germany - as well as France and Great Britain - will remain committed to nuclear agreement with Iran, as long as Iran would continue to fulfil its obligations under the agreement", government spokesman Steffen Seibert said in a statement. They then called on the United States to ensure that the structures of the JCPOA could remain intact, and to avoid taking action which may obstruct its full implementation by all other parties to the deal.

She acknowledged that Paris and Berlin differed on how to strengthen the euro zone, but she said both countries would present a roadmap as planned by June. Most recently, Trump's decision to pull out of a major nuclear energy and arms control deal with Iran has earned him criticism from Germany and other European nations including Russian Federation, who support the deal.

Brodtmann noted that trade with Iran would remain legal for German firms as long as the European Union did not reactivate older economic sanctions against the country.

Islamic terrorists trigger riot inside prison, 5 officers and 1 inmate dead
The riot began on Tuesday, sparked by a quarrel between inmates and police officers over prisoners' food. Some four police officers are being treated. "If they surrender, it will be a non-violent process".


"I urge the United States to avoid taking any action that would hinder other parties from continuing to make the agreement work", Johnson told parliament, adding that Britain had "no intention of walking away" from the deal, which remained "vital" to its national security.

A majority of Germans support French President Emmanuel Macron's proposals to reform the European Union, according to a study published on Wednesday. However, all failed to reach an agreement with the US President.

The Iranian Foreign Ministry was instructed to hold talks on the nuclear deal with the EU, Russia and China within the next few weeks. "Our companies were very hopeful at the opening of the (Iranian) market and the elimination of economic sanctions".

A second State Department official said the United States would be encouraging foreign firms to move out of Iran.

"This resolution remains the binding worldwide legal framework for the resolution of the dispute about the Iranian nuclear programme". German-Iranian commerce has soared by 42 percent since sanctions were loosened in 2016, gradually returning to levels last experienced in the decade between 2000 and 2010.
