France says it is urgent to revive 2015 Iran nuclear deal

French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian, was quoted by a French newspaper Journal du Dimanche saying that Iran was building nuclear weapons and the 2015 Iran Nuclear Deal had to be revived.  

“The Trump administration chose what it called the maximum pressure campaign on Iran. The result was that this strategy only increased the risk and the threat,” Le Drian told France’s Journal du Dimanche newspaper. “This has to stop because Iran and – I say this clearly – is in the process of acquiring nuclear [weapons] capacity.”
