Iran nuclear deal

Iran’s foreign minister says European rebuke of his country’s nuclear policies is aimed at appeasing the QUOTE terrorist Israeli regime with illicit nukes. In a tweet, Mohammad Javad Zarif said Iran’s responsible conduct is the only reason the 2015 nuclear deal is still alive. He warned the E3, the EU and the US against coordinating with Israel as the arch-enemy of the deal. Zarif said they should instead act responsibly and comply with a UN Security Council resolution endorsing the pact. In a press conference with his Israeli counterpart, French President Emmanuel Macron called on Iran to act responsibly and cease the rollback of its commitments under the deal.

He noted that sovereignty is a matter of principle for Beijing, and that Washington should not underestimate China's determination to defend its sovereignty. That was a reference to tensions with Washington over Taiwan and Hong Kong, after the two sides traded barbs over the issues at the beginning of their meeting.
