US, European Allies Warn of Iran’s ‘Provocative’ Nuke Steps

Biden and the leaders of Germany, France and Britain met as Iran continues to enrich uranium to near-weapons-grade levels.

In a joint statement issued after the meeting, Biden, Germany’s Angela Merkel, France’s Emmanuel Macron and Britain’s Boris Johnson “expressed our determination to ensure that Iran can never develop or acquire a nuclear weapon.”

The leaders shared “our grave and growing concern” that Iran “has accelerated the pace of provocative nuclear steps” after it halted negotiations on a return to the nuclear agreement, formally known as Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA).
