China and France have on Monday reaffirmed their commitment to full denuclearization of the Korean Penisula and support for the Iran nuclear deal.

According to Sputnik news reports, during a joint press conference with China’s President Xi Jinping, who currently is in France for an official visit, French President Emmanuel Macron said, “We reaffirmed our desire to support the 2015 agreement with Iran and to achieve the full verifiable and irreversible denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula through dialogue and full implementation of UN Security Council resolutions.’

In 2015, Iran had signed a deal with the United Kingdom, China, Russia, France and Germany to scale down the country’s nuclear programme and tests in return for sanction exemption.

The United States president, Donald Trump, had withdrawn Washington from the agreement and reimposed sanctions on Tehran last year.

All signatories to the Iranian nuclear deal including the European Union has slammed the US’ withdrawal from the pact and reimposing sanctions, stating it does not only poses a threat to Iran but also countries and entities continuing doing their business with Tehran.

Trump and his North Korean counterpart Kim Jong-un held their second summit in Vietnam in February aimed at full denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, but however, it turned out to a failure of Hanoi summit.
