"It seems clear to me that" it will restore sanctions, "concludes Monday's Washington diplomat.
This risk believes experts to "kill" the agreement that the Tehran met in Vienna with the United States, Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom and Vienna. Germany after more than two decades of tensions over the Iranian nuclear program and a diplomatic marathon
All other signatories finally defended this compromise as they consider to be "historical" and underlines that The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which conducts inspections considered highly advanced, has regularly certified respect of the Teh text in the text to guarantee the non-military nature of its nuclear program.
"We are firmly determined to save this agreement because this agreement keeps us from nuclear proliferation", confirmed Monday diplomacy French Jean-Yves Le Drian. His German counterpart Heiko Maas has feared "a failure will lead to escalation" in the Middle East.
President of France Emmanuel Macron, who signs his agreement with his American counterpart, proposed him April 24 to negotiate a "new deal" with Iran to address American problems. German Chancellor Angela Merkel followed him a few days later and admitted that the current agreement "is not enough".
"It is not the world's best" but "perfect, it still has a number of virtues" and the iranians "respect", said the French Army Association in Florence Parly on RTL radio on Tuesday.

Tuesday's announcement will also have consequences that are still difficult to predict. Europeans have stated that they intend to remain in agreement whatsoever
But what should the Iranians do? At the moment, Tehran, where ultra-conservatives co-exist around Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei and more moderate leaders around President Hassan Rohani, have become hot and cold and threaten to leave the 2015 agreement to revive and accelerate the nuclear program or propose that they stay on the Europeans constitutes the American absence.
In addition to the first reactions, a phase of negotiations behind the scenes should be implemented. Even after Tuesday, "there is still a lot of diplomatic efforts to do," said New Permanent Secretary of State Mike Pompeo recently.
