Tusk urged G7 to agree on Iran

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — The head of the European Council, Donald Tusk, before the start of the G7 summit, urged its participants to find a “common language” on Iranian topics, because differences between the US and Europe play into the hands of the Russian Federation and China.

“Speaking about the threat of nuclear proliferation, I must say that the US’s refusal of a nuclear deal with Iran did not bring any positive results,” Tusk said, speaking to reporters in Biarritz.

According to him, “disagreements in the Western world, when it comes to this issue, play into the hands of the Iranian ayatollahs, as well as Russia and China.”

“G7 leaders should make another attempt to find a common language on this issue,” he said at a press conference broadcast by the EC press service.

Last year, the United States unilaterally withdrew from the nuclear agreement with Iran and reintroduced sanctions against it, including secondary ones, that is, in relation to other countries doing business with Iran.

The European participants in the JCPOA, RF and PRC have repeatedly stated that they are in favor of maintaining the deal.
