Trump withdraws from Iran nuclear deal; allies regret his decision

Slapping aside more than a decade and a half of diplomacy by Britain, China, France, Germany, Iran, Russia and past U.S. administrations, Trump called for a "new and lasting deal".

The European Union is mulling action including counter-measures against the U.S. in a bid to protect firms doing business with Tehran from the threat of sanctions following Donald Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal.

"Historically, Iranian presidents are weaker in their second terms".

"Trump believes the fantasy that has been told to him by his National Security Adviser John Bolton and new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo that by trying to re-impose sanctions we can force the Europeans to work with us to renegotiate a completely new agreement with the Iranians that's better for us and worse for the Iranians", Kimball told Al Jazeera.

He was convicted for formulating the part of the plan that used the money from the weapons sales to fund Contra rebel groups in Nicaragua.

But paying Iran for the oil India buys would become hard in case European countries join the U.S. and impose financial sanctions and block banking channels, he said.

"The Iranians have been lying".

"The average family out there can expect to pay about $200 more than they paid last driving season and about $250 more than the 2016 driving season", says Kloza.

Inside Iran's parliament Wednesday, Trump's decision was greeted with lawmakers setting fire to a piece of paper with a picture of the American flag as well as another paper representing the nuclear deal.

"We urge the USA to ensure that the structures of the JCPOA can remain intact and to avoid taking action which obstructs its full implementation by all other parties to the deal", they said in a joint statement.

The Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action was signed by the US, China, Russia, Germany, France and Britain with Iran in 2015.

Almost two out of three adults said that if the U.S. ended its agreement, Iran would likely announce that it was developing nuclear weapons.

"We know that Donald Trump promised to break this agreement in his election campaign, and he also has a Republican base that has pushed for it", Jensen told broadcaster DR. Criticizing the Obama administration, Trump said that a constructive deal could have been struck at the time, but it wasn't.

The inconvenient truth for Donald Trump is that, as far as it goes, the nuclear deal was working.

A White House official said it was possible Mr Trump would end up with a decision that "is not a full pullout", but was unable to describe what that might look like.

Jean-Yves Le Drian, the French foreign minister, told RTL radio: "Iran needs to continue its determination to remain in the pact in return for economic benefits that the Europeans will try to preserve".

President Hassan Rouhani responded with a warning of his own that Iran could restart enriching uranium - a key element of a nuclear weapons programme - "without any limitations" within a matter of weeks.

With that victory in hand and heavy sanctions set to be reinstated against his country's main enemy, Netanyahu got down to tough diplomacy Wednesday, travelling to Moscow to meet Russian President Vladimir Putin, who supports the nuclear deal.

Former President Barack Obama, who Trump blamed for the "horrible, one-sided" deal, took to social media to clarify his stance.
