France committed to Iran nuclear deal despite Trump decision

21:31 - France reaffirms its support for the Iran nuclear deal following the decision by US President Donald Trump to no longer back it in its current form.

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves le Drian says after a meeting in Paris with head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Yukiya Amano, that the deal “remains valid despite the decision of the president of the United States not to certify its implementation.”

Trump announced last week that he would not re-certify the deal to Congress and would terminate the Obama-era pact if Congress can’t come up with new legislation satisfying him on the agreement.

“We didn’t have enough time yet to observe the attitude of Iran,” Amano says. “Yet I can tell you the Iranians are very careful and we continue our controls and inspections without any problem.”
