Macron Stressed Commitment to Iran Nuclear Deal in Conversation With Trump

Macron Stressed Commitment to Iran Nuclear Deal in Conversation With Trump

European signatories to the deal have urged the USA to abide by the agreement, which Trump repeatedly has described it as "one of the worst" transactions ever entered into by the US.

But beyond these nearly categorical statements, what do Iranian officials really think about what Trump may do?

The Iranians may not go along with Trump's efforts to "fix" INARA. Before entering office he had been sceptical of Iran's regional rival, Saudi Arabia. On Monday, Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, speaking at a security conference, accused other countries of fomenting unrest in his.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Thursday that he expected Trump to impose new sanctions on Iran, without addressing what he would decide on the nuclear deal's sanctions.

That idea that the 2015 nuclear agreement is a "good deal" for Iranians - is falling flat on the streets of Iran, where protesters have said they're still not seeing the promised benefits of lifting economic sanctions.

'My sense is there's a little momentum right now, and it doesn't feel to me like we're in a place where the president might do that, but who knows, ' he told reporters. "I think it depends on what he sees on Fox News that morning".

Under the deal, Iran would need roughly a year, instead of less than two months, to produce enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon, giving the worldwide community enough time to detect any major clandestine nuclear effort, said the report, which is co-authored by the Carnegie Endowment for global Peace and Center for a New American Security.




The restoration of United States sanctions would trigger a crisis for USA relations with European allies who all support the agreement, known as the Joint Comprehensive Programme of Action (JCPOA). Hatamzadeh also said, "If the United States withdraws from the JCPOA, Iran should expand its nuclear technology while continuing its cooperation with the Europeans".

"It is incumbent on those who oppose the JCPOA to come up with that better solution, because we have not seen it so far".

Despite Trump's attempts to discredit the nuclear accord-officially titled the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA)-as "the worst deal ever", inspectors and diplomats have repeatedly concluded that Iran has complied with the agreement and that it has been extremely effective.

Six individuals briefed on the matter - two congressional aides, two administration officials and two outside experts - refused to speak publicly on the issue but said that Trump's decision is not yet official and is still subject to last-minute changes, the Associated Press reported. But they have so far been unable to bridge gaps with the Democratic caucus.

Vice President Mike Pence meanwhile said Trump's administration would stand with the protesters in 'their hour of need'. Their reimposition would trigger a crisis in transatlantic relations.

"You're going to be finding out very soon".

Mnuchin's remarks came as the world was waiting for Trump to decide if he would reimpose sanctions on Iran, a move that might endanger the landmark Iran nuclear deal. "That would be a very hard thing to stomach for the Europeans". In addition to a year's worth of public statements making clear Washington's uncertain commitment to the agreement, three blatant examples of USA violations stand out.
