"I would like our debate to reconfirm without any doubt that as long as Iran respects the provisions of the deal, the European Union will also respect it", Tusk said in a letter to the leaders.
President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker also remarked last week that the European Union should replace the United States as a global leader after the latter "as an worldwide actor has lost vigor, and because of it, in the long term, influence".

He added: "Europe must do everything in its power to protect, in spit of today's mood, the transatlantic bond, but at the same time we must be prepared for those scenarios where we have to act on our own".
He called on EU leaders "to reconfirm that the EU sticks to the deal as long as Iran does", underlining that "the deal is good for European and global security".
There is likely to be little or no Brexit discussions as the British Prime Minster alongside Angela Merkel and Emmanuel Macron will "present their assessment of the situation" surrounding the Iran nuclear deal, according to Mr Tusk. European ministers met with a top Iranian official in Brussels on Tuesday in a bid to save the Iranian nuclear accord after Trump made a decision to pull out.
Theresa May, Emmanuel Macron and Angela Merkel have resolved to stick with the joint comprehensive plan of action with Iran, despite the threats of U.S. sanctions against European businesses.
On Saturday, Merkel told Europeans that the US had made potential peace in the Middle East "even more difficult" and warned that "the harder the problem is, and the easier the solution is claimed to be, the more suspicious and critical everyone should be".
European Union leaders are not expected to make any quick decisions.
Trade tensions have been growing since March 23, when Donald Trump ordered to introduce a 25% tariff on steel imports and 10% tax on aluminum, claiming to protect the USA producers from unfair competition and boost national security. Tusk said Europe planned to stand its ground.
This move sparked discontent among the key U.S. trading partners, especially the EU. "We need to bring reality back into this discussion".
