World reacts to US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal

World reacts to US withdrawal from Iran nuclear deal

The UN nuclear watchdog confirmed Wednesday Iran is implementing "nuclear-related commitments" under its deal with world powers, a day after US President Donald Trump accused Tehran of lying about its nuclear ambitions.

In announcing the U.S. pullout on Tuesday, Trump called the accord as an "embarrassment" that was "defective at its core".

Riyadh's statement, which came less than an hour after Mr Trump's decision, said it "supports and welcomes" the United States decision.

His German counterpart, Heiko Maas, said, "the deal makes the world safer", adding, "We don't think there is any justifiable reason to pull out of this agreement".

"President, you are right about Iran" in bold letters, is signed by Harper, former Australian prime minister John Howard, Nobel Peace Prize victor and former Northern Ireland prime minister William Trimble, and other former politicians and writers, including John Baird, former Canadian foreign affairs minister. "Because our commitment to the security of our allies and partners in the region is unwavering, we must also address in a meaningful way shared concerns about Iran's ballistic missile programme and its destabilising regional activities, especially in Syria, Iraq and Yemen".

Geng said China would "carry on the normal and transparent pragmatic cooperation with Iran on the basis of not violating our worldwide obligation".

President Donald Trump speaks during a Cabinet meeting at the White House in Washington on May 9, 2018.

However Hassan Rouhani, Iran's president, has warned that the country will begin enriching uranium again if the financial benefits of the deal for Iran can not be retained. "There's an American withdrawal from the deal but the deal is still there", French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.

Britain has "no intention of walking away" from the Iran nuclear deal despite the United States pulling out, Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson says.

The 2015 agreement, which was negotiated by the Obama administration and included Germany, France and Britain, had lifted most USA and global economic sanctions against Iran.

It was "not acceptable" for the USA to be the "economic policeman of the planet", he said.

He acknowledged however that the United States president's decision - despite appeals from Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel not to abandon the accord - had shown the limits of European influence in Washington.

Last month, he said the deal allowed for "pretty robust" inspections of Iranian facilities.

Chagai Tzuriel, director general of Israel's Ministry of Intelligence, told The Canadian Press that he was seeking support from Canada and Western countries for either cancelling or strengthening a deal that his government views as flawed and ultimately ineffective in stopping Iran's pursuit of nuclear weapons. Banks like Deutsche Bank, like Commerz Bank they refused even two weeks ago to do any Iran transactions.

Washington's actions were "flagrantly trampling on the norms of worldwide law", Russia's foreign ministry said.

The Trump administration kept the door open to negotiating another deal with allies, but it is far from clear whether the Europeans would pursue that option or be able to convince Iran to accept it.
