Polish leaders are planning to defend the U.S. government’s withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal within the European Union, where the decision has been strongly criticised.

On Tuesday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said that Poland wants to be an “informal go-between” and to explain to EU members and U.S. officials the positions of the other party.

The Polish government’s mediation offer departs somewhat from the united front EU leaders displayed last week in voicing their continued support for the landmark nuclear deal.

On Monday, Polish Foreign Minister Jacek Czaputowicz,  during a visit to Washington, had explained that Poland stands with the rest of the EU in looking for ways to limit the economic damage from the Trump administration’s move, “while as for the strategic and security dimension, we also understand the U.S. concerns.”
