REUTERS/Tom BrennerBERLIN (Reuters) - Germany sees a chance to return to a joint transatlantic approach in tackling Iran’s nuclear programme once the new U.S. administration under President-elect Joe Biden takes office, a German official said on Monday.
In May 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump quit a deal with Tehran that sought to limit Iran’s nuclear programme to prevent it from developing atomic weapons in return for the easing of economic sanctions.
While the United States restored sanctions and announced a “maximum pressure” campaign against Iran, the other signatories - Germany, France, Britain, Russia and China - upheld the agreement with Tehran.
“Seeing how Iran increasingly violates its nuclear obligations, this is urgently needed,” he added after a meeting of the foreign ministers of Germany, France and Britain in Berlin for talks on Iran.
