Two European diplomats said that France, Britain and Germany will inform the European Union on Tuesday that they will activate the mechanism of resolving the nuclear dispute with Iran, after Tehran launched new violations of the 2015 nuclear agreement.
The diplomats added that the decision aims to salvage the agreement by talking with Iran about what it should do to reverse decisions taken, and pointed out that the goal is not to reimpose UN sanctions, as reported by "Reuters".
Tensions between the West and Tehran have worsened since US President Donald Trump announced the United States' withdrawal from Iran’s nuclear agreement with world powers.
Tensions have increased recently between Washington and Tehran following a strike by a US drone that killed the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qassem Soleimani, on January 3, and Iran responded by bombing a US base in Iraq.
In his latest tweet on Twitter, addressing his words to Iran, Trump said Sunday: "I don't care at all if they will negotiate. It's entirely up to them, but no nuclear weapons and do not kill your protesters."
French President Emmanuel Macron said on Monday that France and Russia have a common desire to protect the Iranian nuclear deal.
Macron added in a statement that he had contacted, on Sunday, with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the subject.
