Reuters reported that the spokeswoman also repeated the same accusations against
Iran, recounting “they also agreed the international community needed to continue to come together to push back against Iran’s destabilizing regional activity, and to explore ways of addressing concerns about Iran’s ballistic missile program.”

The firm commitment of the two European leaders comes two days after US President Trump speech against Iran during which he accused Iran of violating the terms of the agreement.

During the phone conversation, the two officials also addressed the issue of Brexit, exchanging views on how to continue talks and the areas of disagreement to be resolved.
