France, Britain and Germany have betrayed the 2015 nuclear deal after being threatened with US tariffs, Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif has claimed, noting that Europe has lost the moral high ground.

The three European states accused Tehran of non-compliance with the accord after buckling under pressure from the United Sates, Zarif wrote in a tweet, citing a Washington Post report detailing how the White House allegedly used strong-arm tactics to force the issue. The Iranian diplomat said that the European signatories had “sold out” what was left of the Joint Comprehensive Program of Action (JCPOA) as an act of appeasement.

Britain, France and Germany are “independent countries” and should not allow themselves to be “bullied” by the United States, Zarif said on Wednesday.
