In a statement released by the French President Emmanuel Macron's office, the three European countries expressed concerns about the risk that the nuclear deal will collapse, following sanctions imposed by the United States and as a result of Iran's decision to no longer respect key provisions of the agreement.
 
They stressed that the time has come to act responsibly and to look for ways to stop the escalation of tension and resume dialogue. 
 
The three countries reiterated support of Iran nuclear accord, but noted that its continuation depends on Tehran's full compliance with its obligations.
 
The European powers said that they will continue to explore the opportunities for talks to address the issue of Iran's compliance.
 
They also pledged to pursue "active engagement with all interested parties" to reach a solution able to preserve international peace and security.
