German Foreign Minister criticizes President Trumps move to decertify the Iran Deal

WASHINGTON: Following President Donald Trump’s decision to decertify the Iranian Nuclear Deal, German Foreign Minister Sigmar Gabriel has come out criticizing the move. ⠀

“My big concern is that what is happening in Iran, or with Iran from the U.S. perspective, will not remain an Iranian issue but many others in the world will consider whether they themselves should acquire nuclear weapons too, given that such agreements are being destroyed,” Gabriel said in a radio interview.⠀

But Gabriel wasn’t the only one with things to say.⠀

The EU’s foreign policy chief, Federica Mogherini, came out during a press conference in Brussels in a sharp rebuke of the choice and even challenged its validity. ⠀

“More than two years ago, exactly in July 2015, the entire international community welcomed the results of 12 years of intense negotiations on the Iran nuclear program,” Mogherini said, adding: “It is not a bilateral agreement. It does not belong to any single country. And it is not up to any single country to terminate it. It is a multilateral agreement, which was unanimously endorsed by the United Nations Security Council.”⠀
