German Chancellor defends Iran nuclear deal

Tehran, The Chancellor of Germany Angela Merkel expressed support for Iran nuclear deal saying Berlin was watching its implementation.

Merkel made the remarks Sunday in an interview with an Israel TV channel.

An imperfect deal is better than no deal and that her country will watch very closely to ensure it is being fulfilled, Israeli media quoted Merkel as saying.

Her remarks came ahead of a meeting in Washington this week with US President Donald Trump.

French President Emmanuel Macron is to call on his American counterpart Donald Trump to comply with Iran nuclear deal, American basic cable and satellite television 'Fox News' earlier reported.

Macron is supposed to have a trip to US on Monday.

According to AFP, Macron is to urge Trump to review his decision to leave Iran nuclear deal also known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).

The US administration has done a great deal over past year to kill Iran nuclear deal.

Trump is expected to announce his decision regarding suspending sanctions against Iran and continuing the implementation of the JCPOA on May 12.

The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has already confirmed ten times Iran's commitment to the landmark July 2015 international deal.
