Putin to discuss Iran nuclear deal with IAEA head, Merkel, Macron


Trump also vowed to reimpose the harsh economic sanctions in place prior to the deal implemented in 2015 in exchange for heavy restrictions on Iran's nuclear program.

Macron confirmed that the French and Iranian foreign ministers would meet soon to ensure progress. The International Atomic Energy Agency, the organization responsible for monitoring Iran's compliance with the agreement, has consistently found that Iran has abided by the deal since it entered force in 2016. "This is a break with global commitment and France deeply regrets this decision".

'But they would be much happier dealing with a post-Mullah government. From the nuclear deal pullout to the Israeli military targeting Iranian positions inside Syria in its biggest coordinated assault on that country since 1973, Iran is now trying to save the deal while simultaneously attempting to appease hard-liners seeking revenge for Israeli attacks.

That may yet prove hard. Why pull out of an agreement when Iran was holding up their side of the bargain? However, Tehran stressed that no part of the 2015 nuclear agreement is up for renegotiation.

Israel's PM Benjamin Netanyahu is known to be a huge critic of Iran and supports Donald Trump in pulling out of the Iran deal. Even a whiff of nuclear activity in Iran might be enough to develop a catastrophe.

Sources at the Élysée Palace told CNN that Iran's President had been open to the idea of a broader deal before Trump's announcement. Long after Trump is gone, the impact of his actions will still be felt. Iran did not respond to a CNN request for comment.

The foreign ministry statement said: "We have noted the willingness of the parties to the Agreement to work together on upholding their respective commitments as stipulated in the JCPOA, despite United States decision to withdraw from it". "It will never happen", Ali Akbar Velayati, an adviser to Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, said in September. "Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal". Trump may either call upon Iran and the P5+1 to sign a new agreement, or announce additional postponements for European companies working with Iran.

EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Federica Mogherini is scheduled to host the talks between the foreign ministers of Britain, France and Germany and Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif on Monday in Brussels, her office said in a statement Friday. The people chanted anti-American slogans and set fire to Trump's effigies and American flags.

"Together, we emphasize our continuing commitment to the JCPOA".

"The Iranians, I should tell you, are suspicious that with Pompeo on one side and Bolton on the other side, the next step, they suspect, might be a cautious waiting for the slightest mistake. that will lead to [an] American strike on their nuclear assets", said Barak.

But not everyone thinks Trump made the wrong decision. "If there's not definite guarantee, the #JCPOA can not continue".

"Europe and China will not fight against the U.S. sanctions". If the Iranian regime rushes back into enrichment activities, the resulting worldwide crisis could lead to military action no one should want.

Khalid bin Salman, the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. and brother of the Crown Prince, wrote on Twitter that his country "fully supports" Trump's decision and added that "we always had reservations with regards to sunset clauses, ballistic missiles program, and Iran's support for terrorism in the region".
