Iran preps 'industrial-scale' nuke production after United States leaves nuclear deal

Iran preps 'industrial-scale' nuke production after United States leaves nuclear deal

France, Britain and Germany have all said they will work with Iran to try to salvage the agreement.

"The Iran nuclear deal was signed between six countries in 2015 - Iran, US, Britain, Germany, Russia, France and China for lifting economic sanctions on Tehran" Tehran in exchange for limitations to the country's nuclear programme.

He said that because of the deal, Iran was able to take advantage of turmoil in the region to advance its interests all across the Middle East, in Iraq, in Syria, in Lebanon, in Yemen, so that the consequences of being able to sell Iranian oil without restriction on the global market were providing them resources not just for their nuclear programme, not just as the worlds central banker of worldwide terrorism, but conventional hostilities across the region as well.

The leaders of the three leading European nations had all sought to convince Mr Trump to stick to the agreement struck under the Obama administration, saying that it was the best way of preventing Iran from developing nuclear weapons.

Theresa May has challenged Donald Trump on the impact of sanctions against Iran which will affect United Kingdom firms doing business there, amid a growing European backlash.

Mohammad Javad Zarif will later fly to Moscow and Brussels to consult with the remaining signatories to the 2015 agreement denounced by President Donald Trump.

The former ambassador who led the UK's team leading to the Iran nuclear deal says the deal has served its objective. We all share the common objective of making sure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, are anxious about their terribly destabilising and threatening military behaviour across the region and their ballistic missile program.

"Since the signing of the JCPOA (nuclear deal), we have gone from an atmosphere like a gold rush, to one of utter depression", said a Western trade diplomat on condition of anonymity.

Asked about when ministers would decide, Clark said: "There's a sub-committee of the cabinet that is looking at these things". Ministers backed the decision to draft the document at the weekly Cabinet meeting in Downing Street yesterday morning.

And the Number 10 spokesman added: "The Prime Minister raised the potential impact of United States sanctions on those firms which are now conducting business in Iran".

Germany's minister for economic affairs, Peter Altmaier, said on Sunday that Berlin would try to "persuade the United States government to change its behavior".

Despite the USA exit, Britain and Iran expressed their commitment on Sunday to ensuring that the accord is upheld, according to a statement released by British Prime Minister Theresa May's office.

Zarif said he was optimistic that Iran and the other parties to the agreement could find a way to keep it alive.

But the government of President Hassan Rouhani faces political challenges at home, where the economy was already suffering high unemployment and inflation before Trump's decision.

"They agreed on the need for calm on all sides and on the importance of tackling Iran's destabilising activity in the region", the spokesman said.

The U.S. on Friday condemned Iran's "destabilizing influence" in the Middle East, pointing to its support for a rebel group in Yemen and recent clashes with Israel.

Each company and bank will have to decide whether to risk being cut off from the USA financial system. President Trump has discussed with President Macron in France with Chancellor Merkel in Germany with Prime Minister May in England to move beyond the deal.
