While announcing his exit decision, Trump said the United States will impose "the highest level" of economic sanctions on Tehran, adding "any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States". France's foreign minister said Friday he had asked for exemptions or longer grace periods for the exit of French companies such as oil-and-gas giant Total SA and auto maker Peugeot SA that have returned to the Iranian market since the 2015 nuclear accord.

The last two groups (both of which opposed the pullout, whether they supported the original deal or not) are entitled to point out there is not now, nor was there ever, a backup plan.

The decision overturned years of painstaking diplomacy and left European allies scrambling to save the hard-fought deal.

"They agreed on the need for calm on all sides and on the importance of tackling Iran's destabilising activity in the region", the spokesman said.

The administration says the lifting of sanctions as part of the nuclear pact had allowed Iran to build up its military.

France insists that while European Union nations are willing to discuss issues including Iran's ballistic missile program and its destabilizing role in the Middle East, the nuclear deal must stand. If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen. "In just a short period of time, the world's leading state sponsor of terror will be on the cusp of acquiring the world's most unsafe weapons", he said.

Economic sanctions on Iran will soon resume.

Le Maire said the EU would hold "collective discussions with the United States to obtain. different rules" covering European companies that do business with Iran.

Protesters burned an American flag and railed against the USA and Israel after emerging from Friday prayers in Tehran.

Key restrictions on uranium enrichment would have been lifted after 10 to 15 years under the deal.

Nuclear-only deals do not solve the strategic issues. Iran is going back to its former unpleasant position, but this is not really risky for it. Let me remind you that there are people in Iran, both in power and among the population, who oppose the conclusion and implementation of the JCPOA - for the simple reason that the deal with the P5+1 has brought nearly nothing new to their life.

In the U.S., National Security Adviser John Bolton raised the pressure on Europe, saying that countries and companies that continue to do business with Iran could face sanctions.


That followed a memorandum of understanding signed in January 2016 when Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a state visit to France. Among top US allies, Israel agrees the deal fell short; others don't. India would indeed have to remain steadfast in its Iran deals and not succumb to USA pressures in its enlightened self-interest.

The three European states have recommitted to the agreement.

Iran's foreign minister will travel to Moscow on May 14 and meet his Russian counterpart, Russia's RIA news agency said, citing a Russian foreign ministry official. In recent months, USA and European diplomats have agreed on ways to constrain Iran's missile program and discussed how to strengthen inspections of Iran's nuclear program. In a risky world, Obama said, America must be able to rely in part on strong, principled diplomacy to secure its country. "I'll be working closely with the Europeans to try and achieve that".

External Affairs Ministry Spokesperson Raveesh Kumar said India was was closely monitoring the situation arising out of Trump's announcement to pull the United States out of the Iran deal. Now, we must see if this worldwide agreement to prevent Tehran from obtaining a nuclear weapon can survive without the backing of the United States of America-and what consequences will unfold from the President's decision.

The recognition of Jerusalem and expeditious move of our embassy is a case in point - a physical demonstration of the USA commitment to Israel, which is in fact a commitment to our national security interests.

I recently had a very interesting discussion, actually more like an argument, with an old friend. "The reality is clear".

"The Europeans have repeated on several occasions that they will not be able to resist USA sanctions". "Today's decision to put the JCPOA at risk is a serious mistake".

Barack Obama explains the nitty-gritties of JCPOA. "It is a multilateral arms control deal, unanimously endorsed by a UNSC Resolution", Obama said.

The resentment of a new generation of Iranians toward the United States is likely to increase as well - they have the capacity to hate their own leaders and ours at the same time for failing to improve their lives.

Any agreed solution to the threat from Iran must include the following: Snap inspections of all Iranian suspected nuclear facilities, including military ones. Global monitors also have access to Iran's entire nuclear supply chain.

Fourth, Iran was complying with the JCPOA, he asserted.
