The letter said the United States is moving towards abandoning the nuclear deal despite Iran living up to its obligations.

The European MPs further described the nuclear pact as a "major diplomatic breakthrough" and stressed that a USA withdrawal "could provide a new source of devastating conflict in the Middle East and beyond".

It also warned that "an exit from the United States would have fatal consequences" and spell "lasting damage to our credibility as worldwide partners in negotiation, and more generally, to diplomacy as a tool to achieve peace and ensure security". These included, damaging the credibility western countries who signed the deal as well as to diplomacy as a means of securing peace.

Around 500 lawmakers from Britain, France and Germany on Thursday urged the US Congress to save the Iran nuclear deal ahead of a possible US withdrawal next month.

"Abandoning the deal would diminish the value of any promises or threats made by our countries".

"We were able to impose unprecedented scrutiny on the Iranian nuclear programme, dismantle most of their nuclear enrichment facilities, and drastically reduce the danger of a nuclear arms race", they wrote.

Omid Nouripour of the Green Party in Germany signed the letter because he believes the deal keeps Iran in check. Trump views the deal as too lenient on Iran, a view shared by the president's hawkish new national security adviser, John Bolton. The three European powers are anxious that a US departure could lead to an escalation of regional conflict in the Middle East.

"These issues have to be dealt with".

The US is pushing for broader terms under which United Nations inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency can visit Iranian sites, whether they are declared to be for civilian nuclear activity or not. "It's important for the IAEA to go anywhere it needs to, including military sites", Mr Wood said. While the "E3" powers have been willing to engage the Americans on ways to address Iran's regional power projection and its ballistic missile work, they have thus far rejected any moves that would violate or rewrite the nuclear deal itself.

Iran has said it will stick to the accord as long as the other parties respect it, but will "shred" the deal if Washington pulls out.
