Army Chief Says Iranians had 'Misgivings' About Nuclear Deal from the Start

Axelrod Leaving Iran deal 'unmitigated disaster'

After pulling the United States out of the 2015 Iran nuclear deal, U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday his administration plans to put strong sanctions on Iran "very soon".

"Ireland and our European Union partners, and a very broad spectrum of global opinion have made clear that we believe the JCPOA was a significant diplomatic achievement, and that all parties to it should implement it in full", Coveney said.

There were reports earlier in the day that Trump had told French President Emmanuel Macron that he planned to withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal and reinstate sanctions against the country, as well as additional economic sanctions, according to a person who had been briefed on the conversation.

An adviser to French President Emmanuel Macron said the US decision to re-impose sanctions on Iran means European companies could be affected.

Other signatories to the agreement - the UK, France, China, Russia and Germany - say they remain committed to it.

Stated Boyle in part: "In 2015, I was one of 25 House Democrats to vote against the Iran nuclear deal (the JCPOA) because I believe it left too many important matters on the table".

Still, Bayern could count themselves unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty and Real left-back Marcelo admitted as much afterwards.

Trump announced Monday via tweet that he would speak on the deal, one he has called "one of the worst" deals in USA history.

Further, US president Donald Trump warned that the imposition of sanctions could extend to countries or companies, including European firms with business ties to Iran.

"Yesterday President Trump promised to "work with our allies to find a real, comprehensive and lasting solution to the Iranian nuclear threat".

The major European countries, China and Russian Federation are all continuing to express their support for the agreement following Trump's decision to end U.S participation and restore sanctions against Iran.

Still, Rouhani made a point of stressing that Iran, at any time, could resume its nuclear program.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the United States will "lose in the end" from its decision, while Russia's Vladimir Putin expressed his country's "deep concern" over the U.S. withdrawal.

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

It is clearly shaping up as a discussion that will expose a major cleavage between the US and its G7 partners.

UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said he was "deeply concerned" over Trump's decision, calling on all other nations to support the agreement and preserve the deal.

The Emirates, according to a statement released by the official news agency, issued its support for Mr Trump's decision, and called upon the worldwide 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".

Iran's rhetoric & aggressive regional actions were the background to a flawed deal.

The prime minister said he expects the Iran decision to be discussed when he hosts Trump and their G7 counterparts in Quebec at their annual summit next month. "I have ordered the foreign ministry to negotiate with the European countries, China and Russian Federation in coming weeks".
