Iran Deal Even Cheated Its Own Citizens

  • US may impose sanctions on European firms working with Iran

BORIS Johnson final night time insisted the Iran nuclear deal nonetheless "has worth" as he held disaster talks with European Union counterparts and Iran in a bid to reserve it. There hasn't been much investment in Iran [from European energy companies] except for [French oil giant] Total, and they're ready to come out.

On May 8, President Donald Trump violated the terms of the JCPOA by withdrawing from the accord.

Big losers are Iran's economically-distressed citizens, along with all others - including Israeli - who seek peaceful, secure lives for their families.

Tehran has warned it is prepared to resume "industrial-scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" unless Europe can provide solid guarantees that it can maintain the economic benefits it gained from the nuclear agreement despite Washington reimposing sanctions.

Tehran's chief diplomat embarked on the tour as regional tensions spiked just days after unprecedented Israeli strikes in Syria that a monitor said killed at least 11 Iranian pro-regime fighters, triggering fears of a broader conflict between the two arch-enemies.

For now, Britain, Germany and France have declared that their countries and the European Union as a whole will stay committed to the nuclear deal, but will also try to work out a broader agreement with Iran on the issue of its ballistic missile development and military interventions in the region. Following Trump's decision, the Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control sanctioned nine Iranian individuals and entities including those with links to Iran's Revolutionary Guard.

Concluding that "America stands with the long-suffering people of Iran", Trump added, "Great things can happen for Iran".

EU leaders aim to show a united front on preserving the Iran deal when they meet for a pre-summit dinner in Sofia on Wednesday, European Council President Donald Tusk said. He added, "It was a great embarrassment to me as a citizen and all the citizens of the United States. a constructive deal could easily have been struck at the time".

Man killed when vaping pen explodes, sending pieces into his skull
The company's Facebook page is no longer active, though other retailers are still selling Smok-E Mountain-branded mods. A report from the Pinellas-Pasco Medical Examiner confirmed that the vape pen led to the death of Tallmadge D'Elia.

The deal from the start never said hey, stop everything.

China which is one of Iran's main trade partners and its largest provider of imported goods would continue to purchase Iranian oil and pay with goods and construction projects.

In the words of Vladimir Yermakov, a high-ranking representative of the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs: "The U.S. withdrawal will help us economically because there will no longer be limitations on economic cooperation with Iran".

Those who will suffer the most will be the Iranian popular masses.

Even if Pompeo is successful in getting the European members of the deal and the United States back on the same page, there is no reason to believe that Iran (which successfully recouped funds that were frozen under the sanctions regimen, has the Europeans anxious to preserve the deal and has China and Russian Federation on its side) will give up more than it did before.

But of course we had these countries' "support" before, but they were not party to the deal.

Mogherini says "there was awareness of the urgency" and the four ministers agreed to find some solutions within weeks.
