New Iran nuclear deal violation would send 'wrong signal': French diplomatic source

PARIS (Reuters) - A new violation of the 2015 nuclear deal by Iran would send the “wrong signal”, but efforts to find a solution in the crisis between Washington and Tehran would remain necessary, a French diplomatic source said on Tuesday.

“It would clearly be a wrong signal,” the source said, referring to threats by Iranian officials to reduce a further commitment to the deal later this week.

“The strength of our approach is that it responds to a need ... to break the escalation and take new commitments. If it is not Friday because the Iranians have taken new measures, the same necessity will remain.”
