Russian Federation condemns Trump's threats to withdraw from Iran nuclear deal


Mr Trump has been a vocal critic of the deal, which is aimed at preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons while enabling the country to retain nuclear facilities, ever since it was ratified in April 2015 by the so called P5+1 (which consists of China, France, Russia, the UK and the United States, plus Germany), as well as the European Union.

"Quite literally, Iran Deal is based on verification, not trust", he says in another Tweet.

The Former US Secretary of Energy Ernest Moniz made remarks in his Twitter account, defending Iran's nuclear deal.

While the US President Trump has repeatedly claimed that the deal was too lenient and that Iran had broken parts of the agreement, Iran has said the original deal is non-negotiable and it will stick to the accord as long as the other signatories respect it.

Trump also warned in his statement that the waiver signed on Friday, which must be issued every 120 days to keep sanctions from kicking back in, will be the last one he issues.

Mr Lavrov called these new sanctions an "attack" on Iran, a longstanding Russian ally, and said Mr Trump's actions were "deplorable". He wants Iran to allow the immediate inspection of all sites as requested by United Nations inspectors, and he demands no lapse of the "sunset" provisions imposing curbs on Iran's nuclear program.

Aluwaisheg wrote: "Washington's push to counter Iran's malign activities appears to be the most serious to date - and the most comprehensive, as it covers the nuclear program, ballistic missiles program, support for terrorism, narcoterrorism and money laundering".

The EU said in a statement it had taken note of Mr Trump's decision and would assess its implications.

Is Trump being tough on Iran?

But the strongest reaction came from Tehran, which agreed under the deal to curb its nuclear program and allow intrusive inspections of its nuclear facilities in exchange for relief from punishing economic sanctions.

They are also the first concrete global response to the Iranian government's treatment of protesters. He told him the deal had not been "derailed", but now must confront "some new complicating factors", the state news agency Xinhua reported Saturday.

"Our worst fears are being confirmed", he said.

The EU foreign ministers seemed more concerned than Mogherini about these other regional issues and did not hide the differences with Iran on them.

"I have outlined two possible paths forward: either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw", Trump said. Iranian-born commentator Meir Javadanan told WIN, "Trumps' threats can not work".
