The UK, France, and Germany are opposed to US attempts to re-impose all UN sanctions against Iran as it would have adverse effects on the United Nations Security Council, the joint statement said, APA reports citing Sputnik. 

"We would not support such a decision, which would be incompatible with our current efforts to preserve the JCPOA", the foreign ministers of the three countries said in a joint statement following their talks in Berlin.The policy of maximum pressure on Tehran will not help resolve differences with Iran, they said in the joint statement.

The development comes amid heightened tensions between the remaining parties to the Iran nuclear deal and the Trump administration, which withdrew the US from the accord in 2018 and re-imposed sanctions on Tehran’s oil exports, its principal source of revenue.
