Russia, Germany speak about preserving Iranian nuclear deal

Russia and Iran will continue 'close coordination' on nuclear deal

The US has demonstrated "very little willingness to take the arguments of its allies seriously", German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas told the German magazine Spiegel.

In a declaration on Tuesday, President Donald Trump officially withdrew the United States from the nuclear pact.

World powers agreed to lift some of the economic sanctions imposed on Iran in return for the latter agreeing to rein in its nuclear program.

The White House said May 9 that new sanctions would be announced probably as early as next week, but gave no details.

Shortly after US President Donald Trump announced his country's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal on Tuesday, Iranian President Rouhani declared that "from now on, the Iran nuclear deal will be a deal between Iran and five countries".

Maas said it was essential for Iran to stick to its obligations under the accord despite Trump's move to slap fresh sanctions on Tehran, and called on Russian Federation to use its influence on Tehran in that respect. "This is our common objective, we confirmed this", Lavrov said at a joint conference with Maas.

Maas noted it's important that Iran continues to abide by the deal, adding that he discussed how Moscow could encourage Tehran to do that.

The European partners of the United States, Britain, Germany and France also commented on the decision of the us leader.

Lavrov said Moscow had urged Iran and its arch-enemy Israel to avoid acts that could lead to a spiral of Middle East conflict in the wake of Trump's announcement.

Meanwhile, the European Union on Thursday called on "all regional actors to show restraint" after Israel carried out strikes against what it called Iranian targets in Syria, in response to Iranian rockets fired towards its forces.

Lavrov said President Vladimir Putin had raised the issue with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who was in Moscow on Wednesday to attend a military parade commemorating the Soviet victory in World War Two over Nazi Germany.
