Iran – US - Q&A - Excerpts from the daily press briefing (12.10.17)


Q - Are Europeans planning a common response if Donald Trump announces that he won’t recertify the nuclear agreement?

A - The EU, and France, will learn of President Trump’s decision when the time comes, and will express themselves accordingly.

As a reminder, Jean-Yves Le Drian spoke about the Iranian nuclear agreement on October 10:

“The question is whether Donald Trump certifies that Iran has abided by its commitments or not. We say the agreement must be implemented conscientiously and without compromise. Like all the IAEA experts, who are reliable and who are responsible for evaluating Iran’s cooperation, we believe that country must respect its commitments. The U.S. President must now decide. I note that his secretary of defense and chief of staff have let it be known that they believe Iran is abiding by the agreement.”
