Many major global conflicts are happening "at Europe's doorstep", said Dr Merkel, who expressed concern about the risk of war between Israel and Iran over Syria. Instead, Europe has to take its destiny into its own hands.

But the foreign policy chief of Merkel's party, Norbert Roettgen, warned that it would be hard to adhere to the accord without the United States as European companies that continue to do business in Iran could be hit with heavy U.S. sanctions.

"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. "Other powers ... haven't kept their word", Macron said, without naming a country directly.
