French FM Spox says France unwilling to join US fanning crises

TEHRAN, Oct. 09 (MNA) – While Trump of US has announced that he would take measures to meet up to his campaign promises against Iran’s deal with 5+1 countries, the other parties warn against ruining the accord.

While US President Trump is threatening to shore up anti-Iranian measures of his administration, the other state-members of the landmark nuclear agreement of July 14, 2015, are worried about measures which could further instability in the Middle East.

In a bid to create media hype against the deal known as the JCPOA (the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action), Trump has promised to unveil a new unknown decision soon.

Iran has vowed a “firm and crushing” reaction lest Washington decide to include the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) on the list of organizations supporting terrorism, according to Iranian foreign ministry.

In the meanwhile, French Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Agnes Romatet-Espagne told a daily briefing that France will exercise restraint in reaction to Washington actions against Iran, reported Reuters. "In the context of regional instability, France is vigilant on any actions that could exacerbate the current crises," she said when asked if Paris backed Washington.

Other parties to the agreement, including Germany and the EU, have voiced concerns over the possible scuppering of the deal, according to Russia Today.

Chinese foreign ministry on Monday expressed hope that the nuclear deal will stay in place and will play an important role in strengthening peace, other news sources quoted.

German Foreign Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, also expressed concern that signals coming from Washington suggest president Trump will reject the Iran nuclear deal.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov was also quoted by ITAR/TASS as saying that if Washington withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal, negative consequences will follow.
