European Union foreign policy chief meets Iranian FM in Brussels

"The U.K. and our European partners continue to view the nuclear deal as vital for our shared security, and remain fully committed to upholding it", British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said ahead of the meeting in Brussels. Indeed, according to The Associated Press, European allies were ready to ink an agreement with the United States to fix the deal when Trump pulled out. Speaking in the Diplomatic Room of the White House, he waxed optimistic that the US could team up with allies and world powers so that "a future of great prosperity and security can be achieved for everyone". The regime's radical religious leaders have repeatedly condemned the United States and sought to create instability across the Middle East.

So what's so different between the deal Trump walked away from Tuesday and the one he's actively seeking with the North?

Israeli prime minsiter Benjamin Netanyahu meets with US president Donald Trump at the White House in Washington DC, USA. The Moon-Kim meeting was a prelude to another extraordinary summit, between Kim and Trump, which will take place on June 12.

Trump is very negatively disposed towards the deal.

While withdrawal will let United States once again use aggressive sanctions against Tehran, this decision will - paradoxically - negatively affect Washington's ability to successfully use economic pressure in the future.

Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said while the Iran deal was "a flawed agreement" because of a lack of unfettered inspections and other problems, leaving the deal isolates the US and Trump should have extended it for at least another six months to work with allies.

No matter how much Trump's decisions have divided people, no matter how every decision he seems to make looks like it will only bring more disruption, that he acts completely differently from how other politicians expect him to nearly works in favour of a situation. Trump and other JCPOA opponents argue that lifting sanctions incentivised Iran to step up terrorist and destabilizing activities in West Asia. "In the wake of Trump's decision on the Iran deal, it was not surprising that Iran retaliated against the Israelis for their strike on April 9 that killed Quds Force officers", Ross writes. With respect to the North, he added: "When I make promises, I keep them".

Paul von Maltzahn - former German ambassador to Iran, Egypt and Iraq - tells TRENDS that American policy has undermined the "multilateral approach" that after 2012 halved Iran's oil exports and froze foreign investment and then in 2015 secured the nuclear agreement. By 2017, the Iranians were already building bases there.

Zarif will also hold talks with counterparts from Britain, France and Germany - the three European signatories to the landmark deal who are scrabbling to preserve it. Iran's leaders may follow through on threats to immediately ramp up uranium enrichment far beyond the limits imposed by the deal, which even the US says Iran was abiding. The United States is only one of the nations who have agreed to abide by the deal. That's the case with the Paris climate accord as much as with the Iran deal. "It would not stop Iran from getting nuclear weapons". Countries in the future will be more careful going into a deal with the U.S., as the possibility is now that the USA will not honour its side of the bargain.

In the oil sector, casualties will abound - inevitably, since Iran is a true energy superpower, sitting on 10 per cent of the world's proven reserves of oil, and about 15 per cent of proven gas reserves. The Iranian rial may fall and hyperinflation return to 40 per cent, but this will most likely not be enough if Iran returns to enriching uranium. While the situation is still both unsafe and fluid, thanks to the strength being shown by America and Israel, Iran is starting to lose ground in the region for the first time since the Obama administration began its push for détente with the Islamist regime.

All that will be easier said than done. Its trade with Iran has more than doubled since 2006, and it has invested heavily in new railways and ports in the country.
