Saudi Arabia wants nuclear bombs if Iran restarts its weapons programme

Most observers had expected Trump to order to reinstate a sanction on Iran's central bank, which was under a waiver related to the nuclear deal.

Trump made the announcement Tuesday, dealing a profound blow to USA allies and potentially deepening the president's isolation on the world stage.

"At the heart of the Iran deal was a giant fiction, that a murderous regime desired only a peaceful, nuclear energy program", "Today, we have definitive proof that this Iranian promise was a lie".

Macron confirmed that the French and Iranian foreign ministers would meet soon to ensure progress.

For nations contemplating striking their own sensitive deals with Trump, such as North Korea, the withdrawal will increase suspicions that they can not expect lasting USA fidelity to worldwide agreements it signs.

"With all of the places they're involved, it's bedlam and death and we can't allow that to happen".

Ironically, first by emphasizing the need to fix the agreement, and now in insisting that a new deal be negotiated, Trump risks repeating the error.

That may yet prove hard.

The Germans followed days later, with Chancellor Angela Merkel emphasizing Europe's openness to working with Trump to crack down more comprehensively on Iran.

On the flip side, at least two USA allies outside of the seven-country agreement, Israel and Saudi Arabia, have both expressed support for Trump's decision, claiming that Iran's non-nuclear missile production and financial support for terrorism are larger threats to the region - activities they allege have grown since the 2015 deal.

Iran will not budge one inch on the final text without something in return, which is mainly because they don't trust Trump at all, but also that the Iran Deal didn't bring with it the financial rewards which were expected.

For us, like I said, the focus has to be on a full 60 minutes. "But I never focus on the history". Washington is searching for its first trip to the Eastern Conference finals in 20 years.

Rouhani, considered a moderate by Iranian standards, joined in the criticism of the U.S., and said, "The U.S.is a country that has never adhered to its commitments". "It is obvious that Trump only understands the language of force". Iran did not respond to a CNN request for comment.

He added that if those talks fail, Iran will once against enrich uranium "more than before ... in the next weeks".

During that time, countries like France, the United Kingdom and Germany will be working hard to salvage the agreement.

In their joint statement, Macron, May and Merkel restated their commitment to the Iran nuclear deal and emphasised its importance for global security. Both tried to change Trump's mind on Iran during visits to the White House in April, and both failed.

"Given that that America has now chose to renege on the JCPOA and the Iranian nuclear deal, [Kim] will see this as an opportunity, I think, to drive an even harder bargain with the United States against the negotiating premise that the United States may not stick with its agreements", Rudd added. It's way beyond leaving the JCPOA.

At the United Nations, U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley led a parallel effort to get France and the U.K.to toughen up on other Iranian behaviour, such as its support for Hezbollah militants in Lebanon and for Shiite Houthi rebels in Yemen.

In his remarks, Trump credited Netanyahu's presentation last week with helping him make his decision. There were several lies in his speech.

In a statement, GE said it would amend its plans if necessary to comply with US government policy. "If there's not definite guarantee, the #JCPOA can not continue".

Major companies in the USA and Europe could be hurt.

Trump said a deal with Iran would have to include not just deeper restrictions on its nuclear program, but on its ballistic missiles and support for militant groups across the Middle East.

However, Malik believes the unilateral decision by the United States should result in a more contained reduction of Iranian exports than that seen in 2012-2015, when an European Union oil import ban was also in place.
