'US can't decide for the world:' Rouhani rejects Pompeo's Iran demands
Secretary of state Mike Pompeo on Monday threatened to impose the "strongest sanctions in history" against Iran if it did not accept a sweeping series of USA demands, including effectively giving up its nuclear ambitions, curtailing its ballistic missile programme and ending its expansionist behaviour.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo acknowledged the European Union's concerns, but said that European countries still have to "give up economic activity".
"The sting of sanctions will only grow more painful if the regime does not change course from the unacceptable and unproductive path it has chosen for itself and the people of Iran".
Pompeo demanded Iran "permanently and verifiably abandon" its nuclear work "in perpetuity", provide global inspectors "unqualified access to all sites throughout the country", halt its ballistic missile program, release detained Americans, and end support for Middle East militant groups.

Mike Pompeo addressed the Heritage Foundation with a speech regarding new U.S. policy towards Iran after Washington withdrew from JCPOA. The negotiators reached broad agreement on addressing Iran's ballistic missile program and expanding nuclear inspections.

USA secretary of state Mike Pompeo in Washington on Monday. "These will be the strongest sanctions in history when complete. Are these two not responsible for wasting Iranian lives throughout the Middle East?"
The Treasury Department already has reimposed sanctions on the head of Iran's central bank and other companies and groups, and Mr Pompeo warned: "The Iranian regime should know that this is just the beginning". Now Washington's European allies want to stick with the existing deal. She said Pompeo had failed to show how dropping the 2015 nuclear deal would make the Middle East safer. He saidIran would "allow for this era of extremism to pass". Pompeo noted the list of demands may seem long, but placed the blame for the long list on Iran's malign activity including holding USA citizens hostage.
The strategy leaves the United States at odds with the five other major powers-Britain, China, France, Germany, and Russia-that were equal partners to the nuclear accord, known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, the most significant non-proliferation agreement in more than a quarter century.
The Trump administration will have a team of specialists traveling the world, explaining the administration's policy to American allies which, Pompeo said, will eventually get on board with Donald Trump's plan. As the Associated Press reported, "Taken together, the demands would constitute a wholesale transformation by Iran's government, and they hardened the perception that what Trump's administration really seeks is a change in the Iranian regime".
"I want the Australians, the Bahrainians, the Egyptians, the Indians, the Japanese, the Jordanians, the Kuwaitis, the Omanis, the Qataris, the Saudi Arabians, the South Koreans, the UAE, and many, many others worldwide to join in this effort against the Islamic Republic of Iran", Pompeo said.

Some European corporations, like the French automotive manufacturer Peugeot, have, in fact, suggested withdrawing from the deal, citing concerns about obtaining USA sanctions waivers. The European Commission also suggested EU governments make direct money transfers to Iran's central bank to avoid US penalties and bypass the USA financial system. We've gone from a unified front against Iran to a unified front against President Trump's harebrained scheme.One wonders how a future president is going to fix the wreckage of American foreign policy this president will leave behind.
