French Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron tweeted Tuesday that France, the UK and Germany do not agree with the United States withdrawing from the Iran Deal.

“France, Germany, and the UK regret the U.S. decision to leave the JCPOA. The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake,” tweeted Macron.

President Trump announced the United States would pull out of the JCPOA (Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action) Tuesday, also known as the Iran nuclear deal, which will reinstate sanctions on Iran. Trump called the deal “poorly negotiated” and that it was “a great embarrassment to me as a citizen, and citizens of the United States.” (RELATED: Former Obama Official Says Iran ‘Has Shown More Credibility’ Than The White House)

During his address on the deal, Trump stated that “the U.S. and its allies are unified in their conviction” that Iran must never obtain a nuclear weapon.
