GETTYWorld War 3 Saudi's Adel Al Jubeir warned his country will seek nuclear weapons if Iran does
He added that a "fundamental flaw" of the deal struck under former President Barack Obama was that "we have never had an adequate declaration from Iran of their prior military activities in connection with the nuclear program".
The nations that were hyper critical for the United States on its decision to break away from the 2015 deal had their economic interests at heart rather than the virtues of the deal.
"But for Canada's goal, we make our decisions around foreign policy here in Ottawa, not in Washington, not elsewhere". While both Saudi Arabia and Israel have welcomed Trump's decision to come out of the deal, the European powers issued a statement expressing "regret and concern" over the development and their "continuing commitment" to the deal overseen by them.
"It is not yet clear which concrete sanctions the US will impose".
As a quid pro quo, all worldwide sanctions against Iran, the fifth largest exporter of oil, by U.S. and other countries, were lifted and Iran's economy, which had suffered all these years, was able to revive and come back to its feet. "I think recognizing reality always enhances the chances for peace".
The US has not proposed any alternative to this deal. Although Trump railed against Iranian expansionism, he has proposed pulling 2,000 US special forces out of Syria, which has already emboldened Tehran.
Raddatz asked Bolton what parts of the agreement Iran was violating.
Trump on Tuesday announced that he is taking the U.S out of the Iran nuclear deal and will reimpose economic sanctions on Iran at the "highest level" and will also target "any nation that helps Iran in its quest for nuclear weapons" with sanctions.
There was no direct evidence in Netanyahu's presentation that Iran violated the deal after signing it.
For Tehran, defending the Syrian regime was non-negotiable, as it ensured Iran's access to Lebanon, helping it project power in the region.
Has the objective of the deal been wider and more comprehensive, it could have been saved from the objections of other regional countries.
"We know that standing firmly in support of the JPCOA with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and others is extremely important", Trudeau said. I'm not the national security decision maker.
China was closely involved in negotiating the agreement as one of the five permanent members of the United Nations Security Council and has always been a close Iranian economic partner, buying about a third of Iran's oil shipments.
While Israel was strongly in support of President Trump's decision, Britain, France and Germany came out against the withdrawal. Now, Iran will likely up the pressure on those USA troops and on US soldiers in Iraq.
"At this point, we have to replace the United States, which as an worldwide actor has lost vigour, and because of it, in the long term, influence", he said.
