Trump pulling US out of Iran nuclear deal "a serious mistake" — Obama

Donald Trump has repeatedly criticised the deal calling it 'insane' and a 'disaster'

"If I allowed this deal to stand, there would soon be a nuclear arms race in the Middle East. Everyone would want their weapons ready by the time Iran had theirs", Trump said on Tuesday. But he said he supports it now because the facts have changed. "Defective at its core", the deal didn't bring peace and never would, Trump said.

"If we achieve the deal's goals in cooperation with other members of the deal, it will remain in place", Rouhani said in a televised speech. Unfortunately, it is hard to believe that President Trump has taken this path with a thoughtful plan in mind to address both the significant ongoing issues posed by the Iran as well as the renewed threat of nuclearization. Mr Obama criticised the decision as a "mistake". "This is not in America's interests".

British Prime Minister Theresa May said she "regrets" the US withdrawal from the Iran deal in a joint statement with the UK, Germany and France.

Foreign policy experts have warned for months that if Trump backs out of the Iran deal, it will make it harder to convince North Korea that the U.S. will live up to any commitments brokered as part of an agreement to remove nuclear weapons from the Korean Peninsula. Schneiderman, 63, acknowledged engaging in role-playing "in the privacy of intimate relationships" but denied assaulting anyone or engaging in non-consensual sex. Significantly, the withdrawal threatens to return much of the continent back into near-monopoly dependence upon Russia for heating fuel.

The sanctions target key industries for Iran which include energy, petrochemical, and the financial sector. 'But we will move on, ' he said. And it puts us at odds with our closest European allies, who repeatedly urged the United States to honor the agreement. The JCPOA put a lid on that breakout capacity. So by any measure, the JCPOA has imposed strict limitations on Iran's nuclear program and achieved real results.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was signed by Iran and six world powers in 2015 after lengthy negotiations. Iran's nuclear facilities are strictly monitored. "They hopefully will have other choices and they'll start to redirect". Without the JCPOA, this monitoring and inspections regime would go away.

Fourth, Iran was complying with the JCPOA, he asserted.

One official briefed on the decision said Trump would move to reimpose all sanctions on Iran that had been lifted under the 2015 deal, not just the ones facing an immediate deadline. The prohibition on Iran ever obtaining a nuclear weapon is permanent. "Together with the rest of the international community, we will preserve this nuclear deal". This resolution remains the binding international legal framework for the resolution of the dispute about the Iranian nuclear program. They believed the deal was sufficient to constrain the threat; Trump doesn't. The Iran deal, by tying NPT compliance directly to one country's connection to the world and its economy, was seen as a potential precedent. Inspectors have placed some 2000 tamper-proof seals on nuclear material and equipment, and installed a network of surveillance cameras at nuclear sites.

Obama structured the pact not as a treaty but as an "executive agreement", in order to avoid the requirement for a two-thirds majority in the Senate.

Following statements from Barack Obama and John Kerry, Vice President Joe Biden issued a statement blasting President Trump's decision to withdraw the U.S. from the Iran nuclear deal.

In a dangerous world, America must be able to rely in part on strong, principled diplomacy to secure our country.

The President's decision to pull out from the deal is "foreign policy malpractice", said Thomas Countryman, a 35-year career diplomat who retired last year after leading the State Department's nonproliferation efforts.
