Germany: Berlin reiterates support for Iran nuclear deal amid US withdrawal rumours

Germany, Berlin
October 13, 2017 at 12:24 GMT +00:00 · Published

The German government maintains its stance on the importance of the Iran nuclear deal and advocates for its continued implementation, said government spokesperson Steffen Seibert during a routine press conference at the Federal Press Conference Building in Berlin on Friday. His comments come amidst threats from the US to pull out of the historic deal brokered by the P5+1 countries and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

"We consider this [Iran] deal an important instrument to prevent a nuclear armament of Iran and therefore we will further advocate for its full implementation. This deal is endorsed by the United Nation's Security Council," said Seibert.

The spokesperson also reiterated that the German government's stance on the unfolding crisis in Catalonia remains unchanged, stating that the conflict can only be solved within the democratic constitutional order of Spain, adding that any declarations of Catalan independence would not be recognised by the German government.

Finally, Seibert referred to the exit of the US from UNESCO as "very unfortunate" and is an action that "sends the wrong signal" considering the work the UN organisation does for freedom around the world.
