(ZEROHEDGE) – A joint statement from Britain, France and Germany issued on Tuesday said "we are rapidly reaching the end of the road" to save the 2015 Iran nuclear deal after the Iranian side accused the West of stoking a "blame game" atmosphere.
"Iran’s continued nuclear escalation means that we are rapidly reaching the end of the road," France’s ambassador to the United Nations, Nicolas de Riviere, announced. He added that Iran's consistently blowing past development and uranium enrichment limits all while blaming the U.S. for pulling out of the deal means "We are nearing the point where Iran’s escalation of its nuclear program will have completely hollowed out the JCPOA."
After talks resumed this month, following a lengthy stall since June, each side has accused the other of being unwilling to compromise. Tehran has maintained all along that Washington must drop its Trump era sanctions, or else it remains out of conformity with the 2015 JCPOA.
