United States wants to work with Europeans on new Iran deal: Pompeo

The two leaders agreed for their teams to hold discussions on the potential impact of US sanctions on firms doing business in Iran

US President Donald Trump said the deal was "horrible" because of expiry dates on its restrictions and because it did not cover Iran's ballistic missile programme or its regional influence. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has constantly maintained that Iran is sticking to the terms of the agreement and is not cheating, a fact independently verified by the USA military as well.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif listens to anchor Charlie Rose, at an event held in conjunction with the 72nd United Nations General Assembly in Manhattan, New York, U.S., September 27, 2017.

The White House also has bluntly warned Iran of unspecified consequences should it resume nuclear activities prohibited under the agreement.

Mogherini's remarks on Friday echoed her comments that directly followed Trump's withdrawal from the Iran deal-officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)-earlier this week. He says that the American decision could pave the way for robust measures that could truly stop the Islamic Republic of Iran from nuclear armament.

We all share the common objective of making sure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, are anxious about their terribly destabilising and threatening military behaviour across the region and their ballistic missile program.

The U.S. withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal is now a fact and the market has reacted as expected, namely with a knee-jerk reaction that saw Brent and WTI both jump by over 2 percent a day after President Trump made his announcement and continue climbing up.

"Benjamin Netanyahu placed his chips on Trump and on him leaving the nuclear deal and he is now celebrating big-time with 35 seats".

"Now, even though hardline critics of the government say they support the president, they are predicting that this will shake the foundation of Rouhani's cabinet", added Basravi.

Germany's minister for economic affairs, Peter Altmaier, said on Sunday that Berlin will try to "persuade the USA government to change its behaviour". Le Maire said he would meet with German and British finance ministers at the end of the month to discuss these proposals. "They agreed for talks to take place between our teams".

"This impulse to destroy is not leading us anywhere good".

This was part of the flaw of the deal to entice Europe and the United States into economic relations with Iran that eventually would have worked against really holding Iran accountable for violations of the deal.
