    Features of the Nuclear Deal as Defined by Merkel

    Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, has recently stated important words on talks with Iran over the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), and the Europe's package of proposals which was accordingly offered to the Iranian officials! After her meeting with the Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, Merkel mentioned: We remain committed to the nuclear agreement. We think it was well negotiated. There is more that needs to be negotiated with Iran, but we think it is better to stay in the agreement. However, Berlin could do little to protect international companies against punitive US measures, it is up to individual firms to decide if they want to invest in Iran."
