  • Iran Does Not Want 'New Tensions' in Mideast, Says Rouhani

German Chancellor Angela Merkel stepped up her criticism of USA unilateralism, saying President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from a nuclear accord with Iran "damages trust in the global order". Merkel said the deal to curb Iran's nuclear program in return for the lifting of sanctions was far from ideal, but stressed it should not be "unilaterally terminated" since it had been approved by the UN Security Council.

Merkel and Putin reiterated that Germany and Russian Federation are seeking to preserve the agreement between the remaining parties, according to the statement.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will visit Russian Federation in the coming days as part of a diplomatic tour taking in Brussels and Beijing, his spokesman said yesterday.

The deal was brokered after almost 20 months of negotiation between Iran and the United States, Germany, Britain, China, Russia and France, as well as the European Union.


But the chairman of Iran's parliamentary committee on foreign affairs condemned Israel for carrying out the strikes in Syria.

It was the broadest critique yet by the German leader, who unsuccessfully sought to sway Trump during a visit to Washington in April.

A member of Iran's clerical elite said yesterday Europeans could not be trusted after President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran would remain in nuclear deal with world powers.
