EU says committed to Iran nuclear deal, will not reimpose sanctions

Trump poured scorn on the "disastrous" 2015 accord, describing it as an "embarrassment" to the United States that does nothing to contain Iran's nuclear ambitions. "Iran will never compromise on this agreement and will abide by this agreement till the end".

Cairo urged Iran and regional states to avoid any steps that could undermine security in the Middle East or lead to military confrontations, according to the statement.

Netanyahu before leaving Israel said that "the meetings between us are always important and this one is especially so". "But the consistent flouting of agreements that our country is a party to risks eroding America's credibility, and puts us at odds with the world's major powers".

What Was The JCPOA Agreement?

But the massive diplomatic push ended in failure as Trump - as expected - announced the United States was pulling out and reimposing sanctions that had been relaxed in return for Iran abandoning its nuclear programme. The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) has repeatedly disproved the claims.

Senator Kirsten Gillibrand released a statement addressing the concerns that withdrawing from the deal removes the ability to maintain a strong coalition holding Iran accountable.

"Iran should not have uranium enrichment and plutonium reprocessing capabilities". For decades, Iran had steadily advanced its nuclear program, approaching the point where they could rapidly produce enough fissile material to build a bomb.

The Kremlin has previously warned Washington against abandoning the landmark 2015 deal, saying this would deal a heavy blow to worldwide relations and non-proliferation efforts. In turn, Iran should continue to receive the sanctions relief it is entitled to whilst it remains in compliance with the terms of the deal.

As a counter, Iranian President Rouhani warned his country is ready to resume enriching uranium within weeks.

Some analysts also warned the move would complicate USA efforts to reach an agreement with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un over his country's own more advanced weapons programme.

There have been fears in Israel of Iranian retaliation. The JCPOA is working - that is a view shared by our European allies, independent experts, and the current U.S. Secretary of Defense.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Tuesday in a statement that Moscow is deeply disappointed by the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and there are no grounds for such a move.

France, Germany, and the United Kingdom regret the USA decision to leave the JCPOA. So it's not surprising John Kerry's objective today was to keep the deal.

Russian Senator Andrey Klimov pointed out that the betrayal of the deal, which was the result of long negotiations, would harm any trust that North Korea could bring to upcoming negotiations between the United States and Pyongyang regarding denuclearization.

How Will This Affect Americans On The Homefront?

While Republicans mostly sided with Trump, several GOP lawmakers publicly cast doubt on the rationale and timing behind Trump's unilateral action.

The government backlash reflected public anger in Iran over Mr Trump's decision, which threatens to destroy the landmark 2015 agreement.

The JCPOA was never meant to solve all of our problems with Iran. "The world is a safe place when we ensure there is a halt to the proliferation of nuclear weapons".
