World Powers To Resume Iran Nuclear Deal
Heiko Maas, German Foreign Minister

The German government has replied US President Donald Trump not to threaten Iraq with sanction. 
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas says threatening Iraq with sanctions is “not very helpful” at this stage of the crisis between Iran and the USA.

He comments after  US President Donald Trump warned that if US forces were forced to leave the region, Iraq would be  struck with sanction they never seen before.

France, Britain and Germany have earlier on told Iran to refrain from any violent action and respect arrangements laid out in the JCPOA 2015 nuclear deal with world powers. Adding that, they would discuss over Iran nuclear deal on Monday.

“I don’t think it works to convince Iraq with threats but with arguments,” Heiko Maas told Deutschlandfunk public radio.

“We will definitely talk to Iran again. What has been announced is, however, not consistent with the agreement.

“[The situation] has not got easier, and this could be the first step to the end of this agreement, which would be a big loss so we will weigh this up very, very responsibly now.”

Killing of Qassem Soleimani, the commander of  Quds Force alongside with Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis the deputy commander of Iraq’s Popular Mobilization Unit (PMU) and several other people have generated war threat between US and Iran and other Middle East counties vow to retaliate the assassination of the generals.
