EU will stick with Iran Nuclear deal: Mogherini

North Korean leader Kim visits China meets President Xi

Former President Barack Obama is calling President Donald Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal a "serious mistake" that will erode America's global credibility. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., a member of the GOP leadership who sits on the Senate Intelligence Committee. He described the threat posed by Iran with headline-worthy hyperbole. While taking the JCPoA as a base, we also agree that other major issues of concern need to be addressed. We've had a deal in place that has constrained Iran's nuclear program.

Both have said they will not allow Iran to develop a bomb.

But something else is happening here.

The president called the JCPOA a "horrible, one-sided deal that should have never, ever been made", and suggested that it was "defective at its core".

"Israel has opposed the nuclear deal from the start", he said, because "rather than blocking Iran's path to a bomb, the deal actually paved Iran's path to an entire arsenal of nuclear bombs, and this within a few years' time". And the announcement will mark an enormous step toward making 21st-century international politics a no-rules free-for-all. When the deal was struck in July 2015, Iran had roughly 22,000 pounds of low-enriched uranium on hand, the kind used for powering nuclear reactors.

"There's none whatsoever. None whatsoever", Kerry responded.

Robert Patman says domestic politics has strongly influenced Trump's decision to pull out of the Iran nuclear deal. Will Tehran retaliate by restarting some nuclear work? "But it was another straw, if you will". The United States joined the other permanent members of the United Nations Security Council-Russia, China, the United Kingdom, and France-and Germany in negotiating with Iran. French president Emmanuel Macron even tweeted out his disappointment immediately afterward, like someone chosen to deliver the opposition response.

In Brussels, officials are already working on "blocking" measures that would protect EU citizens and companies from US prosecution.

Iran has ruled out renegotiating the accord and threatened to retaliate, although it has not said exactly how, if Washington pulled out.

Trump's decision means Iran's government must now decide whether to follow the U.S. and withdraw or try to salvage what's left of the deal. But one of Pompeo's predecessors, President Clinton's secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, expressed reservations at the speed with which the Trump administration is moving.

"If negotiations fail, the Islamic republic will enrich uranium more than the next weeks", Rohani said a televised speech. Unfortunately, that was not the agreement the Obama administration negotiated in 2015, and for that reason I did not support it. It should come as no surprise that Iran responded to it with more aggression and deception.

President Hassan Rouhani speaks in a meeting with officials in the northeastern city of Mashhad, Monday, May 7, 2018. "Their behavior all over the world has been worse, not better, since the agreement was entered into".

In 2015, President Obama, through then-Secretary of State John Kerry, signed on to the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, or JCPOA, without consulting Congress. The stated conclusion of the deal was that the U.S. and five key allies would ease sanctions and return frozen Iranian assets in exchange for Iran allowing international inspections at its admitted nuclear sites.

"They're kind of in a defensive mode", said DeHaan, "So it looks as though things won't be hot in terms of oil prices rising". "This nuclear deal is not perfect, but it is certainly the best existing tool we have to prevent Iran from developing nuclear weapons and avoid a disastrous military conflict in the Middle East". And it's awfully big.
