Trump's decision to exit nuclear deal amplifies widespread anger in Iran

Trump's decision to exit nuclear deal amplifies widespread anger in Iran

In a lengthy statement on Friday, the Iranian government warned that it would take "whatever reciprocal measures it deems expedient" if it is not fully compensated for the US withdrawal from the nuclear agreement as provided for in the accord.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani similarly said that the Islamic Republic would stay in the deal if the European countries, along with Russian Federation and China, continued to abide by it.

As Iranians take to the streets to protest President Donald Trump-who ditched the Iran nuclear deal this week despite warnings that it could lead to "a potentially catastrophic military confrontation"-in a speech on Friday, Europe's top diplomat vowed to work with the global community to save the agreement and railed against Trump's style of politics". The Iran nuclear deal was signed between six countries in 2015 - Iran, US, Britain, Germany, Russia, France and China for lifting economic sanctions on Tehran in exchange for limitations to the country's nuclear programme.

"Iran's Military Budget is up more than 40 percent since the Obama negotiated Nuclear Deal was reached. just another indicator that it was all a big lie". He will visit Beijing followed by Moscow and Brussels, a spokesman said, holding meetings with all of the remaining parties to the 2015 agreement.

Mr Johnson added: "The Government regrets the decision of U.S. administration to withdraw from the deal and reimpose American sanctions on Iran".

Iranian Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, also has said that "It is not logical to continue the implementation of the JCPOA without receiving enough ‎guarantees from three European countries, the UK, France, and Germany".

Any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons could also be strongly sanctioned by the United States'. In a separate interview on CNN's "State of the Union", he said Iran's economic condition is "really quite shaky", so the impact of sanctions "could be dramatic".

Although Mogherini did not name Trump in her State of the Union address, she certainly appeared to be referencing the president when she said, "It seems that screaming, shouting, insulting and bullying, systematically destroying and dismantling everything that is already in place, is the mood of our times".

"This deal is not a bilateral treaty".

Iran says as far as it's concerned the U.S. pullout has not killed the nuclear 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.
