European MPs urge USA not to scrap Iran nuclear deal

European MPs urge USA not to scrap Iran nuclear deal

Macron, who arrives in Washington Monday for a state visit while transatlantic tensions persist over trade, Syria and Iran, said he was mindful of how France was the first global ally of American revolutionaries during their war for independence.

Macron's state visit will include, on 23 April, a tour of Mt Vernon and a private couples dinner, the official told reporters.

The pact, co-signed by China, Russia and European powers, forced Iran to curb its nuclear capabilities in exchange for widespread sanctions relief.

Trump has set a deadline of May 12 to "fix the bad flaws" or he will refuse to extend sanctions relief on Iran.

According to the letter, clinching the JCPOA helped the global community "to impose unprecedented scrutiny on the Iranian nuclear program, dismantle most of their nuclear enrichment facilities, and drastically diminish the danger of a nuclear arms race".

US allies have urged Trump to remain in the deal, known as the JCPOA, saying it is the best way to prevent Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.

"The Europeans, E-3 in particular, have been working hard in trying to address some of our most important or prominent concerns having to do with Iran's ballistic missile programme, for example, the sunset clause in the JCPOA and so on", the senior administration official said, referring to the agreement by its acronym.

"That work is not quite done yet", the official added.

Trump has threatened that he will return U.S. sanctions on Iran unless the so-called flaws of the 2015 nuclear deal are fixed.

Iran has said it will stick to the accord as long as the other parties respect it, but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out.

Hundreds of lawmakers from Germany, France, and Britain have called on their counterparts in the U.S. Congress to support the 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and six world powers, calling it a "major diplomatic breakthrough".

Iran has prepared a number of "options" to retaliate if the United States decides to scrap the deal, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told CBS' Face the Nation in an interview to be aired on Sunday.
