A senior European diplo tells me came to Brussels for a photo op -- Europe and US stand against Iran. "He wanted a photo op. We declined and stuck to the plan."

A note in response to some questions. Please read this metaphorically not literally. He didn't literally come for a photo up and was declined. Diplo source said he came to create impression US had Euro backing vs Iran but that Euros declined to play that game.

So he was not literally looking for a photo op, but they literally gave him one?

Another senior EU diplomat comes up and says to me "You and your tweets." I replied OK but it's true though. Response "Yes."

And another diplomat. Time was an issue for E3, , lack of joint meeting. But “I think there was no appetite for a joint meeting.”
