Don't Do Business With Iran, Bolton Warns Euro Firms

Then president-elect Donald Trump with then president Barack Obama in the Oval Office Washington DC

"A wiser path would have been to live with the JCPOA, continue negotiations with Europeans and others on a successor pact to extend Iranian nuclear constraints, push for new sanctions tied to Iran's ballistic missile program and do more to frustrate Iran's efforts around the Middle East, including keeping US military forces in Syria".

The 2015 Iran nuclear deal agreed to relax economic sanctions against Tehran in exchange for Iran limiting its nuclear program.

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. "It didn't bring calm, it didn't bring peace, and it never will", he said.

The recent talks between the US and European diplomats on how to fix the current Iran agreement foundered on the question of how to address the easing beginning in eight years of the nuclear constraints. "Germany, France and the United Kingdom have decided that we will abide by the agreement, and we will do everything we can to see that Iran also abides by its responsibilities in the future". "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 risky weapons", he said.

But analysts said Iran was determined to maintain the moral high ground in the coming weeks.

Chancellor Merkel said on Thursday, "It is no longer such that the United States simply protects us, but Europe must take its destiny in its own hands, that's the task of future". "We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction, and we will not allow a regime that chants "Death to America" to gain access to the most deadly weapons on earth".

Russian officials suggested the United Kingdom had carried out the attack to stoke anti-Russian hysteria. Skripal, 66, remains in hospital following the attack in the Wiltshire city on March 4.

Key restrictions on uranium enrichment would have been lifted after 10 to 15 years under the deal. None of the illicit facilities that the regime covertly built in violation of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty were required to be permanently closed down under the deal.

"If they don't trust the inspections, I don't know why they would be strongly encouraging Iran to comply", said Corey Hinderstein, a fuel cycle expert who previously worked on implementation of the deal at the Department of Energy.

US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that the US was withdrawing from the 2015 global nuclear agreement with Iran to prevent that country from developing a nuclear bomb, adding that he would immediately impose economic sanctions on Tehran.

European leaders have deplored Trump's decision, and pledged to uphold the agreement, which was signed on 14 July 2015 by Iran and the five permanent members of the UN Security Council - China, France, Russia, UK, and the U.S. - plus Germany and the European Union (EU).

"Principally, New Zealand must reject [the sanctions] but they declare they're going to obey European Union countries, I think they will have the same policy that European Union will have in the coming weeks".

Moreover, verifiable limitations on Iran's research and development on advanced centrifuges; reinstatement of the United Nations arms and missile embargo on Iran; reinstatement of sanctions on Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps officials that were removed under the deal; and the withdrawal of all Iranian military personnel, militias, and equipment from regional states, starting with Syria. The Trump administration is now dealing with the failure of Obama's aspirational foreign policy, which was supposed to moderate the hard-line clerics who really run Iran. In a unsafe world, Obama said, America must be able to rely in part on strong, principled diplomacy to secure its country.

So I'm willing to go back on all those things I said - and a lot of them I said just of stubbornness. "I love her. However I've checked out myself day-after-day and I've tried to guage myself and the lady that I really like".

Pompeo said "I worked hard over the short time I've been the secretary of state to try and fix the deal".

"Trump officials say that it sends a clear signal that Washington isn't interested in just any deal - it wants complete denuclearization".

While he has committed to remaining in the nuclear agreement, French President Emmanuel Macron floated the idea of a supplemental deal on Iran during a recent visit to Washington. Closer economic partnership with Israel will only increase America's prosperity, which, as President Trump has pointed out, leads to greater security. The rest of the world expressed disappointment and condemnation over a decision most found puzzling from a strategic perspective.

Though the move garnered support from the Gulf and Israel, it was slammed by many.
