BRUSSELS (Reuters) - European powers want to keep the Iran deal alive without the United States, Germany’s Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said on Tuesday before a meeting with his French, British and Iranian counterparts.

“We will search this evening for ways to keep the Iran deal alive without the United States,” Maas said.

“We want to hear what expectations there are in Iran, how the impact of the sanctions that the United States has imposed, and will impose, can be counterbalanced,” he said.
