Trump dumps Iran nuclear deal, U.S. reimposes economic sanctions on Tehran

A paper version of the American flag has been set on fire in Iran's parliament amid shouts of "death to America" following President Donald Trump's decision to exit a 2015 nuclear deal.

He says the European powers believe the United States should work to prevent Iran's nuclear activities from returning to its pre-JCPOA situation, while it is no longer committed to the deal. Clearly, allowing the terrorist regime in Tehran to obtain nuclear weapons should not be seen as an option.

The United States' ambassador to Germany told German businesses to stop trading with Iran, and a German business association said it feared that European companies that traded with Iran would risk U.S. fines. I would advise them very strongly, ' U.S. president said.

Professor Gillespie highlighted that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) confirmed Iran is not cheating on the deal.

Nimrod Barkan, Israel's ambassador to Canada, said Trump's decision actually gives Western countries the leverage they were lacking to curb Iran's development of long-range missiles and its deployment of fighters to Syria that continue to threaten Israel.

A second official confirmed to AFP on Thursday that Washington still wanted the inspections.

The 2015 agreement, which was negotiated by the Obama administration and included Germany, France and Britain, had lifted most U.S. and worldwide economic sanctions against Iran.

However, Mr Rouhani insisted new U.S. sanctions were against global rules and United Nations Security Council Resolution 2231.

Iran has denied ever pursuing nuclear arms.

Walking away from the deal means that the United States will likely re-impose sanctions against Iran after 180 days, unless some other agreement is reached before then.

Mr Trump reiterated his view that the deal negotiated by President Barack Obama and five other powers was a "one-sided deal that ultimately was going to lead to nuclear proliferation".

"While the JCPOA was far from ideal, by signing the agreement, Iran gave up 98 percent of its uranium stockpile, dismantled 2/3 of its centrifuges, rendered its heavy water nuclear reactor unusable, and agreed to unprecedented inspections that provide critical insight into, and early warning about, any attempts by Iran to accelerate its nuclear program", Warner said.

According to the statement, Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps "pours resources into exporting destabilizing influence throughout the Middle East".

The JCPOA adds an extra layer of scrutiny not found in existing accords, including monitoring of mines and restrictions on multi-point detonation systems and nuclear computer simulations.

Although the display from the Iranian lawmakers provides a shocking visual, "Death to America" is a relatively common slogan in Iran, even in parliament, dating back almost four decades. "There is no one who will realistically choose Iran over the United States", said energy consultancy FGE.

That approach has left some questioning why the administration wants monitoring to continue at all.

He pointed to the appointments of national security adviser John Bolton, who has called for regime change in Iran, and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who advocated for military strikes on Tehran during talks on the nuclear deal.

The source said: "Today our President Tayyip Erdogan held a telephone conversation with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin".

Around 20 lawmakers gathered in the chamber early on Wednesday, the morning after Trump pulled out of the deal and attacked their government's "long reign of chaos and terror".

Trump has described the agreement as "the worst deal in history" and vowed to renegotiate it.

In response, Rouhani warned Iran could resume uranium enrichment "without limit".
