Iran deal: Europe vows to keep nuclear agreement alive after Trump reneges

Iran deal: Europe vows to keep nuclear agreement alive after Trump reneges

The 2015 agreement imposed restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in return for the lifting of most USA and worldwide sanctions.

Still, Rouhani made a point of stressing that Iran, at any time, could resume its nuclear program. "I would advise them very strongly".

Trump yesterday argued that the deal struck by the previous Obama administration and world powers was "defective at its core" and that he would pull out and reimpose sanctions on Iran, the world's fifth-biggest oil producer.

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

Still, Pakistan hopes that the remaining five signatories - Britain, France, Germany, China and Russian Federation - will work out a way to ensure that the deal is upheld, the FO said.

The lawmaker emphasized that none of the parties in the Iranian nuclear deal, including the USA itself, had previously expressed dissatisfaction over Iran's fulfillment of the deal's conditions.

Trump said he definitive proof that Iran has violated the 2015 agreement aimed at freezing the country's nuclear ambitions.

Meanwhile, Iran's President Hassan Rouhani said, "The US has announced that it doesn't respect its commitments".

Many in Tehran and elsewhere in the country are anxious about what Trump's decision could mean for Iran.

In probably his first statement on foreign policy after he left the White House in January 2017, Obama said there were few issues more important to the security of the United States than the potential spread of nuclear weapons or the potential for an even more destructive war in the Middle East. "'Cause I don't think they do understand life".

He said Trump's decision "makes it more likely Iran will restart its nuclear weapons program in the future". The sanctions on oil will require European and Asian countries to reduce their imports from Iran, the paper said.


Major European and U.S. companies are likely to be hit. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that licenses held by Boeing and its European competitor Airbus to sell billions of dollars in commercial jetliners to Iran will be revoked.

Under the financial sanctions, European companies will have 90 to 180 days to wind down their operations in Iran, or they will run afoul of the American banking system.

At the same time the OPEC oil cartel and other oil-producing countries - notably Russian Federation - have agreed to restrict production to boost prices.

For some Iranians, pulling out of the deal is simply reinforcing their suspicion of U.S motives and integrity. "That shows we're not going to rely on paper performances but real performance", said National Security Adviser John Bolton.

While U.S. flag-burning is common in Iran and harsh criticism of America has been a staple of Iranian parliamentary politics for years, it was the first time political observers could remember anything being burned inside the parliament itself. Plus, if the USA government can undo global agreements in such a cavalier fashion, its leadership role in the world needs to be seriously questioned.

China today voiced regret over President Donald Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Iran nuclear deal and vowed to "safeguard" the agreement.

Yet nations like Israel and Saudi Arabia that loathed the deal saw the action as a sign the United States is returning to a more skeptical, less trusting approach to dealing with adversaries.

Still, President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw from the deal drew the ire of both New Jersey Democratic senators.

Iran has always denied seeking a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic program was for civilian purposes. The deal was not "decayed, rotten", as Mr Trump has described it.

"That is why the announcement is so misguided", Obama said, adding, "Walking away from the JCPOA turns our back on America's closest allies, and an agreement that our country's leading diplomats, scientists, and intelligence professionals negotiated". Yet the Europeans realized he was unpersuaded.

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.
