German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said US decision to quit Iran nuclear deal was wrong.

Speaking at the lower house of parliament in Berlin, the chancellor recalled that the UN member-countries voted for that document, and it took years to agree on the deal.

She said UK, France, Germany and the EU as a whole - believe that it was wrong to withdraw from the agreement under such circumstances.

According to Merkel, there are some points of contention in relations between the European Union and Tehran, including Iran’s ballistic missile program.

She said situation will not improve after Washington’s withdrawal from the deal.
