French President Emmanuel Macron for broader Iran deal

French President Emmanuel Macron for broader Iran deal

The removal of those sanctions, including on the Iranian oil and banking sectors, had been key to persuading Iran to accept limits on its nuclear programme.

Prior to the president withdrawing from the deal, Iran's Foreign Minister said that if the USA were to move forward in reinstating sanctions that the country would likely restart its prior operations on developing its nuclear program.

The foreign secretary said while the United Kingdom shared U.S. concerns about Iran, the "painfully negotiated" agreement was effective and had increased the amount of time it would take Tehran to develop nuclear weapons. He went on: "He had maybe more than 10 lies in his comments".

He also accused Trump of being mentally unfit to lead the U.S.

"The Iranian regime is the leading state sponsor of terror". "We fully trust the work, competence and autonomy of the International Atomic Energy Agency that has published ten reports certifying that Iran has fully complied with its commitments", she said.

Khamenei, who has final say on all state matters in the Islamic republic, warned that Trump's remarks threatened Iran's people and its theocratic government.

President Trump ignored the advice.

A other looming debacle is whether the U.S. pullout from the Iran deal could trigger a nuclear arms race.


Iran said it will remain in the deal with other five signatories.

President Trump in April said Iran would pay a "price" if it threatens the U.S.

Meanwhile, an official says that France and the European Union will work with the Trump administration to ensure European business interests in Iran are protected despite the US decision to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal.

The angry lawmakers also burned a piece of paper meant to represent the nuclear deal and stomped on its ashes. "Our response will be stronger than what they imagine and they would see that within a week", he had said.

The documents suggest significant conceptual progress in warhead design, but it is unclear whether the Iranians know how to produce the bombs or whether its missiles have the capability to deliver them.

China is strongly invested in the agreement, and it's unclear what effect Trump's widely-criticized decision to re-impose sanctions will have on its relationship with Tehran. "But we will not use our weapons against our neighbors", Rouhani has said. On Wednesday, the ayatollah seemed to suggest that Iran, too, could abandon the deal.

Meanwhile, under Trump, the United States consistently undermined the implementation of the nuclear deal, preventing Iran from getting the carrots that ensured its continued commitment to the deal.

China's foreign ministry said Beijing would defend the deal and urged parties "to assume a responsible attitude". However, some analysts have suggested that the nuclear agreement would likely collapse altogether if the USA chose to pull out. One by one, European leaders came to Washington and tried to meet his demands, while pleading with him to preserve the deal.
