Is Washington Too Focused on Iran's Nuclear Program?

Barack Obama

Doubling down on Wednesday, Trump told reporters at the White House there would be "very severe consequences" if Iran were to resume its nuclear enrichment program, which the 2015 deal curbed in exchange for sanctions relief.

"The average family out there can expect to pay about $200 more than they paid last driving season and about $250 more than the 2016 driving season", says Kloza.

Trump abruptly withdrew from the deal Tuesday and reimposed crippling sanctions on Iran which will come into effect within six months. The move was criticized by key allies, including France, Germany and the United Kingdom, who are signatories to the accord and lobbied Trump in recent weeks to remain in it.

The leaders of Britain, Germany and France, signatories to the deal along with China and Russian Federation, said in a joint statement that Mr Trump's decision was a cause for "regret and concern".

However, many analysts said that the presentation had merely re-hashed what was already known about Iran's previous activities.

"I don't trust these three countries either", Khamenei said on his website.

He said the sanctions will sharply curtail sales of oil by Iran, which is now the world's fifth largest oil producer. Therefore we, the E3, will remain parties to the JCPOA. They prefer a tougher approach, the kind Trump is taking.


Anu Anand: Why? Do they have confidence that the European leaders, including your own Chancellor Merkel can broker a deal that avoids US punishment?

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said today that he had instructed his foreign minister to "meet and coordinate" with the remaining signatories of the JCPOA within weeks, and said the agreement would still stand if Iranian interests could be met. "If you want to conclude an agreement, obtain real guarantees, otherwise tomorrow they will do the same as the U.S".

After sanctions were eased as part of the nuclear agreement, Iran ramped up production to about 3.8 million barrels a day.

If that fails, the European Union could also use a blocking statute to protect companies conducting business with Iran from U.S. sanctions, as it did when it lifted its own sanctions on Cuba.

The Emirates, according to a statement released by the official news agency, issued its support for Mr Trump's decision, and called upon the global community and parties in the Iran nuclear agreement to "heed Mr Trump's call for a Middle East free of nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction".

"China will take an objective, fair and responsible attitude, maintain dialogues and consultations with all parties, and continue to work to maintain and implement the comprehensive agreement", he said. Yet, Iranian nation is persistent while former USA presidents passed away & IRI is still standing. "'Cause I don't think they do understand life".
