France, Germany say they'll stick to Iran nuclear deal

The foreign ministers of France and Germany say they will hold on to the nuclear agreement with Iran, regardless of the upcoming U.S. decision on whether to nix the deal.

U.S. President Donald Trump has threatened to cancel the 2015 accord restricting Iran's nuclear activities this week, saying it's flawed.

France's top diplomat, Jean-Yves Le Drian, says the three European countries that were part of the deal — France, Britain and Germany — are committed to maintaining it.

Le Drian said Monday in Berlin that "we will continue it independently of the American decision."

His German counterpart, Heiko Maas, said Berlin, too, wants to stick by the deal, which he said "makes the world a safer place and without it the world would be less safe."
