France, UK, Germany say Iran deal could collapse on Russian demands

PARIS (Reuters) - France, Britain and Germany warned Russia on Saturday that its demands to have its trade guaranteed with Iran risked the collapse of an almost-completed nuclear deal.

Negotiators have reached the final stages of discussions to restore the so-called JCPOA deal, which lifted sanctions on Iran in return for curbs on its nuclear programme, long seen by the West as a cover for developing atomic bombs.

However, last Saturday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov unexpectedly demanded sweeping guarantees that Russian trade with Iran would not be affected by sanctions imposed on Moscow over its invasion of Ukraine.

"Nobody should seek to exploit JCPOA negotiations to obtain assurances that are separate to the JCPOA," France, Britain and Germany - the so-called E3 European parties to the 2015 accord - said in a joint statement.

"This risks the collapse of the deal," they said.

The deal on the table should be concluded with the utmost urgency, they added.

Washington has already insisted it will not agree to Russia's demands.

The 11-month-old international talks seek to bring Iran back into compliance with the deal's restrictions on its rapidly advancing nuclear activities and bring the United States back into the accord it left in 2018 under former President Donald Trump.

Oil markets are closely watching the progress of talks to see whether restrictions on Iranian crude exports might be lifted, which could help to offset disruption to supplies from Russia's war in Ukraine.

What is the commotion about. France, UK and Germany have no right to  be blaming Russia now.  They should be pointing the fingers at ex President Dumb. After all, this would not have happened if America did not pull out of the treaty unilaterally.

The EU should not surrender and just force Biden to reestablish the United States as a global energy producer as it was under Trump. End terrorism by boxing out Iran, remove Putin's last grab at respect and cease trading with China as Vietnam and South American markets would welcome the investment.

this person is absolutely correct. Trump Era policies would have put a major crimp in Putins' global advances to restore the old soviet union. same goes for China and their efforts to unite Taiwan back into the communities fold.Sadly, the Biden presidency and dems are too weak in their efforts to contain these adversaries. Trump 2024

Robert Ciello  yes, there'd be no complaining just like in Russia - dictators are not big on complaining - they just steal everything not nails down - Trump was sooooooo jealous! Trump could have really made bank on the Ukraine war just think all the trump tower building permits he could have extorted from Poutine to shaft the Ukraine!
