Merkel: Iran deal is better than no deal

The Iran deal is not a "perfect" document but it is "better than no deal," German Chancellor Angela Merkel said at a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday. The head of the German government went on to say that she supports a political solution to all conflicts in the Middle East and pointed out that tensions remain high in the region.

Merkel noted the United States pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal is a "very difficult situation" but noted European countries are determined to remain a part of the agreement. The chancellor also stated that a political solution is crucial both for Iran and Syria. She went on to praise the work of UN Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and supported the Astana dialogue.
