Publication of Arab News draws attention to the fact that Rouhani made no mention of night shelling by Iranian forces on Israeli territory and the Israeli response to the rocket fire.

"The escalation in recent hours has shown us that it's really about war and peace", Chancellor Angela Merkel warned, during her address at the International Charlemagne Prize award ceremony in Aachen. "And I can only call on all sides to exercise restraint here", Merkel said during a ceremony awarding Macron the Charlemagne Prize for strengthening European Union integration.

Germany, France and Britain will "do everything" to ensure that Iran remains in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, Chancellor Angela Merkel vowed during the meeting, a day after the United States pulled out of the accord. "Let us not be weak", added the French president.

"Iran does not want new tensions in the region", he said. Leader of the Islamic Revolution, Ayatollah Khamenei, during his visit to the Farhangian University on May 9, stated that Iran did not trust the three European countries which are part of the deal and without receiving a strong guarantee from them, Iran was not going to stick to the nuclear agreement.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel said Thursday that Europe can no longer count on the United States to protect it, urging the continent to "take destiny into its own hands".

Europe must take its destiny into its own hands, said Merkel.

France and its European allies will work hard to safeguard the interests of their businesses in Iran, a source at the office of French President Emmanuel Macron said on Wednesday, after the United States said it was reimposing strict sanctions on Tehran. "That's the task for the future".

Macron echoed the call to flesh out Europe's common foreign and defence policy.

"I urge the U.S. to avoid taking any action that would hinder other parties from continuing to make the agreement work", Johnson told parliament, adding that Britain had "no intention of walking away" from the deal, which remained "vital" to its national security.

"In Germany there can not be a perpetual fetish for budget and trade surpluses, because they are always made at the expense of certain others", Macron said, adding that a north-south divide between wealthy and poorer nations that emerged during the financial crisis should not be allowed to resurface. "In particular, this means that we must do everything we can to finally achieve a lasting political solution to the Syrian conflict - to end the suffering of the Syrian people, but also so as not to jeopardize stability in the entire region".
