A trio of European countries opposed the September 20 deadline set by the US to reimpose sanctions on Iran. They said any decision to reimpose the measures would not be legal.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that the United Kingdom, France and Germany said on Friday that the United Nations sanctions relief for Iran would continue after September 20 - a deadline set by the US to reimpose sanctions.
In a letter to the UN Security Council, the European countries said that any decision to reimpose the UN sanctions would be "incapable of legal effect."
"We have worked tirelessly to preserve the nuclear agreement and remain committed to doing so," said the countries.
The Trump administration is yet to comment on the move by the UK, France and Germany.
