Speaking alongside his German counterpart in Tehran, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif stressed a shared objective of salvaging the 2015 nuclear deal and asserted that "the U.S. has announced economic war against Iran. This war is dangerous to the region, the world and international order. In our opinion, the U.S. has targeted the Iranian nation, those who were supposed to benefit most from the JCPOA's achievements". Zarif went on to state that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin "Netanyahu has said that they will destroy Iran. No one can take a measure against the Iranian nation". In related remarks, Iran's diplomatic spokesperson urged "more tangible and bigger practical measures" from Europe.
