Iran has called France, Germany and Britain accomplices trump and Netanyahu

The Minister of foreign Affairs of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif has called France, Germany and the UK "accomplices" of the US President Donald trump and the Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu.

On Friday, the foreign Ministers of Germany, France and the UK urged Iran to promptly and fully cooperate with the IAEA and grant access to sites, as required by the organization. The parties also stressed that "eurotroika" continued to comply with its obligations under the transaction after the US withdrawal from the agreement.

"The E3 (Germany, France, great Britain – ed.) needs to stop to save face for the public and the courage to declare publicly what they admit about themselves: their inability to fulfill their own obligations under the AGREEMENT because of the complete powerlessness in resisting the bullying of the United States. Behind the facade, E3 – accomplices trump and Netanyahu, and in no position to give advice to Iran," Zarif wrote on Twitter.

For publication Zarif has attached the titles of two articles 2018 and 2019 in the Newspapers the Straits Times and the Atlantic, respectively. "Europe seems to bend under US sanctions against Iran," reads one of them.

Iran and the six international negotiators in July 2015 reached agreement on the settlement of the longstanding problem of the Iranian atom. Months of negotiations concluded with the adoption of a joint comprehensive plan of action (SVPD), which in the future fully takes off Iran's previously imposed economic and financial sanctions by the UN security Council, US and EU.

The agreement in particular provided that the arms embargo will be lifted on Iran within 5 years, the supply of arms possible before, but only with the permission of the UN security Council. The deal in its original form lived for three years: in may 2018, the United States announced its unilateral withdrawal from her and the restoration of tougher sanctions against Tehran. However, because of the formal deal came only USA, the rest of the participants must comply with a condition on the abolition of the arms embargo.
