    Tehran: The head of the Atomic Energy Organisation of Iran (AEOI) Ali Akbar Salehi on Wednesday criticised three European countries -- Britain, France and Germany -- for their recent triggering of the dispute mechanism in the Iran nuclear deal.

    The move to trigger the mechanism has been the result of the US pressures and demands, Salehi was quoted as saying by the official IRNA news agency.

    "It proved Europe's inability and imprudence in the face of the US demands," he said.

    Last week, the three European countries announced they had taken steps to trigger the dispute mechanism with Iran in response to Tehran's back-off from the nuclear commitments over the past months, Xinhua news agency reported.
