Brian Hook is senior policy advisor to the US Secretary of State. DW's Max Hofmann spoke with Hook and began by pointing out that glaring difference: Washington has ditched the Iran nuclear deal; Europe is sticking with it.
Iran has been accumulating, or has been prepared to accumulate, enriched uranium, the International Atomic Energy Agency said in a new report.
The EU has "failed to act on their promises" within the 2015 nuclear deal, said Iran's atomic energy chief. Germany's foreign minister has warned against escalation of the dispute, saying "everyone must act responsibly."
Courts in Iran have sentenced a person to death and jailed two others on charges of spying for the US. Ties between Tehran and Washington have deteriorated dramatically since the US withdrew from the Iran nuclear deal.
Britain, France, Germany and the EU have issued a joint statement warning Iran to stick to its commitments under the 2015 deal on its nuclear program. Tehran's recent actions and activities were "deeply concerning."
