Europe offers no guarantees but vows to keep Iran deal alive

17 Mai 2018

"We will look at potential options for supporting continued sanctions relief for Iran to ensure we meet our commitments under the deal, as well as calling on Iran to continue to abide by the restrictions the deal places upon their nuclear program", he said.

Pompeo also said he couldn't rule out such sanctions, though he expressed hope that the usa withdrawal from the nuclear deal would force the world to strike a new deal.

Susan Rice, former national security adviser of Obama and United States ambassador to the UN, warned that U.S. withdrawal "will not force Iran back to the negotiating table... but will leave Iran's nuclear program unconstrained, and an inconstant America isolated from its allies and far less safe". Instead, Britain, France, Germany, Russia and China have all expressed their intention to keep the nuclear deal in force.

Earlier on May 15, Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed the Iran deal with French President Emmanuel Macron by phone, the Kremlin said. Instead of geniality, what we've received from Iran is threats to wipe out Israel, the harassment of the USA military to the point of taking hostages and a bloody, terroristic presence in the Middle East meant to say Iran would soon be in murderous control.

In the CNN interview, Bolton did not respond directly when asked whether Trump might seek "regime change" in Iran, or whether the US military would be ordered to make a pre-emptive strike against any Iranian nuclear facility.

Sen. Charles Schumer, D-NY, who opposed the deal made under President Obama, irked Trump by criticizing the decision to withdraw.

France insists that while European Union nations are willing to discuss issues including Iran's ballistic missile program and its destabilising role in the Middle East, the nuclear deal must stand.

The parties announced, "Today, we have taken a decisive step: we have reached solutions on key parameters of a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, " which they meant to complete by June 30. "The circumstances I'm in now is that I'm the national security adviser to the president".

It seems clear that, from Trump's perspective, the Iran deal and the diplomatic advances with North Korea are closely related - and that his policy of "maximum pressure" is paying off. "He makes the decisions, and the advice I give him is between us". Mogherini said on Friday that "it seems that screaming, shouting, insulting and bully, systematically destroying and dismantling everything that is already in place, is the mood of our times.[But we have to] move on from the 'I win, you lose. approach".

She added: "Britain, France and Germany were of the opinion that the agreement against Iran's nuclear armament is an agreement that certainly has weaknesses, but an agreement we should stand by".

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said on Sunday that Tehran would remain committed to its 2015 nuclear deal if its interests were protected. The thing is, some of the other six countries involved in this are making billions through trade with Iran, and for that reason and others, want to keep their part of the deal intact. And a key question for Europe is therefore how far to push back against Trump, as indicated by Le Drian who said on Friday that "the extraterritoriality of the [US] sanction measures are unacceptable".
