Govt should disapprove United States decision of withdrawing from Iran nuclear deal: CPM

President Donald Trump's decision to remove the USA from the Iran nuclear accord will leave the U.S. The reason for that is that following the announcement, other signatories of the deal reiterated their support for the agreement as well as their desire to revisit it. President Macron said that France, Germany and the United Kingdom regretted the decision and the European Union vowed to uphold the Iran nuclear accord. I would advise them very strongly. "If they do there will be very severe consequences", he told reporters.

The comments came a day after Mr Trump announced he was withdrawing the United States from the accord with Iran, abruptly restoring harsh sanctions in the most consequential foreign policy action of his presidency.

"By taking a step that violates the (Iran deal), President Trump has taken a drastic step that will increase the possibility of Iran resuming its pursuit of a nuclear weapon and make it much more hard to reach a diplomatic agreement to constrain North Korea's nuclear program", Sen.

Sen. Dick Durbin (D., Ill.) called Trump's decision to scrap the deal "reckless", saying the global inspections regime required under the accord to probe Iran's nuclear facilities is now at risk. Russian Federation announced that the US alone would not be able to overturn the deal and its Deputy Foreign Minister said it was willing to support France's proposal for new negotiations.

Given the widespread condemnation of the USA decision to both withdraw from the JCPOA and reimpose previous economic sanctions against Tehran, the respective Middle East strategies on both sides of the Atlantic appear to be at odds, for the time being, undermining Mattis' comments.

"By walking away from this agreement we are forsaking the opportunity to continue to monitor in detail the [nuclear] work done by Iran to make certain that they live up to its terms", alleged Sen.

"The way they are employed best", Peek said, "is through a constant iterative process where we engage those countries, we prod them in certain ways, cajole them in others, and gradually we reduce the amount of investment going into Iran". "'Cause I don't think they do understand life".

Trump, who repeatedly criticized the accord during his presidential campaign, said Tuesday that documents recently released by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu showed Iran had attempted to develop a nuclear bomb in the previous decade, especially before 2003.

"Unilaterally walking away from this agreement will leave America isolated instead of Iran, weaken our worldwide credibility during a critical moment with North Korea and recklessly put the catastrophic threat of a nuclear-armed Iran back on the table", said U.S. Rep. Hank Johnson, D-Ga., whose district includes south Gwinnett.

"Unfortunately, Europe missed the four-month-long chance that it could use to preserve thee JCPOA, and spend that time on convincing the new USA administration to stay in the JCPOA".


Perhaps the highest profile American held by Iran is Robert Alan Levinson, a retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent working for the Central Intelligence Agency, who disappeared while on Kish Island in Iran in 2007.

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.

Oil prices are likely to rise and could lead to volatility in financial markets.

European diplomats meanwhile insisted that the 2015 accord would not suddenly collapse despite the U.S.'s withdrawal. He predicted Iran would choose to negotiate eventually, or face consequences. Treasury said that at the end of those periods, the sanctions will be in "full effect". Companies and banks doing business with Iran will have to scramble to extricate themselves or run into trouble with the USA government.

Iranian lawmakers lit a paper of an American flag on fire while chanting "Death to America" after the USA pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal.

In response to Trump's announcement, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said during an address Tuesday that he had ordered his foreign minister to begin negotiating with other countries to salvage the deal, according to The Associated Press.

French aircraft dealer Airbus will also lose roughly $20 billion in business as a result of Trump's decision, because although the company is based in Europe, parts used to manufacture the planes are made in the United States. Trump's decision could also give hardliners who opposed the deal an edge over Rouhani.

Saudi journalist Mashari Althaydi wrote in a column published on the Al-Arabiya news website that Iran's possession of nuclear weapons would make it necessary for Saudi Arabia to possess similar weapons for deterrence. Yet the Europeans realized he was unpersuaded.

Several European leaders voiced disappointment over the US decision on Tuesday, while close allies to Trump, such as Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, cheered on the decision. In Tehran, Rouhani sought to calm nerves, smiling as he appeared at a petroleum expo.
