European Union nations react to Trump's Iran deal pull-out

On Tuesday President Trump announced the United States was pulling out of the 2015 Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) and called it "disastrous" and "one-sided".

But Trump, a severe critic of the deal dating back to his 2016 presidential campaign, said Tuesday in a televised address from the White House that it was "defective at its core".

Last week, a senior Israeli intelligence official was in Ottawa to garner support for his government's opposition to the Iran agreement.

Rouhani, who staked his reputation on the benefits of the deal, told the world that as far as Iran is concerned, the deal is not dead and he would continue to work with the other five countries still committed to saving it.

British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson urged the United States on Wednesday not to undermine the Iran nuclear deal it has just ditched and said Washington should "spell out" its plans for what comes next. Those on the right say the Iran deal would have sped that process up. "If the regime continues its nuclear aspirations, it will have bigger problems than it has ever had before".

Macron took the lead in trying to persuade Trump not to renounce the accord.

"The Trump administration plans to impose additional sanctions on Iran that will make it more hard for it to trade with other countries", West said. The U.S. exit from the deal throws billions of dollars of planned European investments into disarray.

At that point in time, key restrictions on its nuclear program would be lifted, allowing Iran to install thousands of advanced centrifuges for enriching uranium.

Iran would also have perfected its ballistic missile technology at that point, providing a vehicle for the deployment of the nuclear bomb.

While Iran's arch foes in Israel and Saudi Arabia welcomed Trump's decision, signatories to the existing deal vowed to plough ahead without the United States. His only aim is to create terror and fear in the world order, which is painfully endeavouring to move toward a peaceful solution to nuclear weapons. "The European Union is determined to preserve it".

Meanwhile, for nations contemplating striking their own sensitive deals with Mr Trump, such as North Korea, the withdrawal will increase suspicions they can not expect the United States to stick to worldwide agreements it signs. Without the USA, the deal is too one sided to survive - at least as is. What it can do-and what Trump has promised to do-is attempt to force the deal to collapse by also imposing sanctions on countries that do business with Iran.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama - whose administration inked the deal - made a rare public criticism of his successor.

Then, clearly anxious about eavesdropping from the regime's spies, he added, "I've got fear when I am talking to you in this country".

"But for Canada's goal, we make our decisions around foreign policy here in Ottawa, not in Washington, not elsewhere".
