Don't Scuttle the Iran Nuclear Deal

Iranian dissidents rally in DC, call on Trump to 'rip up' nuclear deal

Writing in the New York Times, Johnson described the deal as a means to "counter Tehran's aggressive regional behaviour" and urged Trump to "improve the handcuffs" on Iran "rather than break them".

Iran says it has plans to respond to any move by Donald Trump to scrap the 2015 nuclear agreement, warning the United States would face "historic regret" if it abandons the deal.

Total did not respond to requests for comment, though its CEO Patrick Pouyanne reportedly told Trump in February to stick with the deal.

Britain, France and Germany remain committed to the nuclear accord but are prepared to open talks on Iran's ballistic missile program, its nuclear activities beyond 2025 and its wars in Syria and Yemen in a bid to keep the United States involved.

Netanyahu said Israel is sharing a trove of confiscated Iranian nuclear documents with the six world powers that signed the deal, as well as other countries, in hopes of mounting further opposition to the deal.

May 12 is the deadline when Trump would decide whether to reinforce the sanctions that had crippled Iran's economy over the years before the 2015 deal. It promised not to seek the manufacture of nuclear bombs in return for worldwide lifting of sanctions on Iran.

The deal is formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action and was agreed to by Trump predecessor Barack Obama in 2015.

Walmart Inc.is seeking to acquire Flipkart with a 73% stake in the company, according to a report from FactorDaily . Despite a board approval, Bloomberg reports that the terms of the deal could change and a deal isn't certain yet.

Sir Kim Darroch, the British ambassador to the United States, said Sunday that Trump had not made a decision yet to leave the pact and could stay in it if negotiations between Washington and Tehran on possible changes to the agreement work out. This plan wouldn't include Russia, China and Iran.

Trump lashed out at Kerry during his speech to the National Rifle Association in Dallas on Friday, May 4, saying his act of negotiating with Iran was "horrible".

He said Britain - which remains committed to the agreement - the United States and Europe were "united in our effort to tackle the kind of Iranian behaviour that makes the Middle East region less secure - its cyber activities, its support for groups like Hezbollah, and its risky missile programme".

"We are honouring our commitment, but we are telling the whole world we will not negotiate with anyone about our weapons and our defence". Another important thing for Europe is that the global financial system is so interconnected and so tied to NY that it would be nearly impossible for anyone anywhere in the world to continue their business with Iran without risk of violating USA sanctions. "We have no Iranian deliveries that are scheduled or part of the skyline this year, so those have been deferred again in line with the U.S. government process".

He argued that inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency have been granted extra powers to monitor Iran's nuclear facilities, "increasing the likelihood that they would spot any attempt to build a weapon".

In another context, Ali Akbar Velayati, the foreign policy adviser to Iran's supreme leader Ali Khamenei, stated that Iran would resist any condition that results from the U.S. withdrawal from the nuclear deal.
