France, Britain, Germany to keep Iran nuclear deal – Paris

France, Britain and Germany will keep the 2015 nuclear deal with Iran irrespective of Washington’s decision later this week, France’s foreign minister said on Monday. “We are determined to save this deal because this accord safeguards against nuclear proliferation and is the right way to stop Iran getting a nuclear weapon,” Jean-Yves Le Drian told reporters in Berlin. Germany doesn’t see any reason to scrap the deal, Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Monday. “We continue to believe that this agreement makes the world safer and without this agreement the world would be less safe,” Maas said at a joint news conference with his visiting French counterpart. “We fear a failure would result in an escalation,” Maas said.
