Socialist group in EP condemns US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal

BRUSSELS, The Group of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) in the European Parliament on Wednesday slammed US President Donald Trump’s announcement to withdraw the US from the Iran Nuclear Deal “extremely irresponsible.” “President Trump’s decision is reckless and dangerous, undermining the whole international regime against nuclear proliferation. Therefore, we call on all EU member states to stand united in preserving the Iran Nuclear Deal, even after US withdrawal,” the leader of the second-largest group in the EP, Udo Bullmann , said in a press release.

“President Trump clearly showed he has no interest or will to reach a mutually acceptable compromise with the EU. The EU now needs to preserve tangible economic benefits to Iran that are an essential part of the agreement, ” he said, warning that “irresponsibly tearing it apart increases the chances of a new war in the Middle East.
