Europe Condemns Iran’s Nuclear Moves but Further Action Is Needed


Britain, France, and Germany, who are the three European signatories to the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, sent out a joint statement on Saturday to express their concerns over Iran’s latest violations of the deal and threats to go further unless the world agrees to meet its demands.

They said they were worried over Iran starting work on uranium metal production, as this material can be used in the core of nuclear bombs and has “no credible civilian use”, and predicted “potentially grave military implications.”

It failed, however, to say what would happen if Iran didn’t comply with the agreement, which is typical of Europe’s appeasement of Iran.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian described the latest moves as the regime advancing its nuclear weapons capability, rejecting Iran’s claim that their nuclear research is academic or about power generation, which shows growing support for an assertive strategy on Iran.

His Iranian counterpart Mohammad Javad Zarif accused him of spreading “absurd nonsense” and said that European nations had done nothing to save the agreement, following the 2018 withdrawal of the United States.

Iran’s FM Zarif Should Be Held to Account for Terrorism

This is a lie. Europe has done everything to save the deal, even after Iran’s many public violations. Iran has failed to save the deal because it can’t keep to its side of the bargain.

EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said Monday that Europe “deeply regrets the worrying steps taken by Iran” and has major concerns over the violations but still seems keen to keep the deal as is, even when it’s clearly not fit for purpose. Iran’s nuclear ambitions are dangerous for the region and the world, but that doesn’t mean they should be allowed to do what they want for fear of retaliation.

The best way to deal with the Iranian regime is strength. It’s ending a deal that the mullahs have already violated. It’s joining the US in getting a new deal that will work for everyone.

“The right approach to Iran’s blackmail is not to offer more concessions but to build an international coalition to put more pressure on the regime,” the Iranian Resistance wrote.

“Doing so would put the International community in a position to not only forestall Iran’s nuclear weapons capability but also to make positive strides in dealing with a wide range of issues, from Iran’s ballistic missile tests to the proliferation of Iran-backed regional militias, to the ongoing trends of hostage-taking, human rights abuses, and repression of dissent in Iran,” the NCRI added.
