Iran vows to retaliate if United States withdraws nuke deal

In wealthy Germany growing up poor is a dead-end street

Iran's foreign minister warned on Friday of an "unpleasant" response both from Tehran and the global community if President Donald Trump acts on his threats to withdraw the United States from the 2015 nuclear deal.

"The response from Iran, and in fact from the global community, to the USA move would be very unpleasant for Americans", he added.

US sanctions against Iran will resume unless Trump issues new waivers by the May 12 deadline.

The following day Mr Macron will have the rare honour of addressing a joint session of Congress.

Under Iran's settlement with the United States, France, Germany, Britain, Russia and China, Tehran agreed to curb its nuclear program to satisfy the powers that it could not be used to develop atomic bombs.


Trump has called the agreement one of the worst deals ever negotiated.

"The Europeans, the E3 in particular, have been working hard on trying to address some of our most important or prominent concerns having to do with Iran's ballistic missile program, for example; the sunset clause; and the JCPOA, and so on".

United States disarmament ambassador Robert Wood said on Thursday that Washington had been having "intense" discussions with the three European allies ahead of the May 12 deadline, when USA sanctions against Iran will resume unless Trump issues new "waivers" to suspend them. That work is not quite done yet.

"Iran has a wide range of options both inside and outside of the JCPOA (the nuclear deal) and surely the reaction from Tehran and the global community will be unpleasant for the Americans", Zarif told reporters upon arrival in NY. The US remains in the deal by periodically waiving nuclear sanctions against Iran.

Iran, on its part, has maintained it will respect the agreement as long as the other nations do but will "shred" it if the US pulls out.
