Russian Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the International Organizations in Vienna Mikhail Ulyanov in a message criticized position of France, UK, and Germany with regard to renovation of Iran nuclear deal.

"E-3 continue to advocate for a '#JCPOA plus agreement'," Ulyanov wrote in his Twitter account on Friday.

"The position of the new US administration in this regard, as it is articulated by senior officials, seems to be more realistic: first restore full implementation of the nuclear deal with #Iran and then address other issues," he added.

The European powers, who signed the nuclear agreement, adopted a weak stance when it came to preserving the deal, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and they did nothing to help Iran circumvent illegal and unilateral sanctions imposed by the Trump administration.

On 2 April 2015, the P5+1 (the US, the UK, France, Russia and China plus Germany) and Iran, in a meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland, reached an agreement to lift most of anti-Iran sanctions in exchange for limits on the Islamic Republic's nuclear programs extending for at least ten years.

US President Donald Trump re-imposed the sanctions in November 2018 after leaving the landmark nuclear deal with Iran in May the same year. The American officials ignored the fact that the deal had been verified by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) in the form of its Resolution 2231.

The new US administration under President Joe Biden says that they intend to revive the international agreement, but certain Arab countries in the Persian Gulf and Israel have mobilized their capacity to get in the way of returning of the US to the nuclear deal.

There are also some signs from the green continent, which show the Europeans pursue their disloyal way of action, when it comes to Iran.
