India 'cautious' as Donald Trump pulls out of Iran nuclear deal

The Pentagon chief assured the Senate panel that the Trump administration would continue working with USA allies to prevent Iran from obtaining an atomic bomb post-America's withdrawal from the agreement.

That said, they are our top ally and our interests are very often in lockstep.

A recent revelation from the Israeli government showed that Iran still harboured plans and intentions to keep their nuclear weapons program.

He said foreign companies which have signed contracts with, or invested in Iran should clearly announce their decisions on how they are going to deal with Washington's pullout from the JCPOA.

Mattis declared that Iran failed to reduce its "malicious activities" in and around the Middle East as a result of the agreement reached between Tehran and USA -backed world powers - the U.K., France, Germany, Russia, and China - in July 2015.

That said, there are clear upside risks to the oil prices, among which the hawkish tone of President Trump, the re-introduction of all the past secondary sanctions, the guidance to begin implementation immediately and finally, the high efficiency exhibited by the latest round of U.S. unilateral sanctions on Rusal all raise the risk that Iranian production declines sharply even despite this foreign support.

"I would advise Iran not to restart their nuclear programme, I would advise that very strongly".

Other world powers have vowed to uphold the landmark deal, which places restrictions on Iran's nuclear program and subjects it to global inspections.

"Because I did not understand marriage, I did not understand divorce, I probably should have fell back", Jada said about she would have changed about how she went about entering into a co-parenting situation with Will and Sheree. "I was co-mothering with her".

"It is absolutely incumbent upon our government to do everything we can to make sure Americans are not left behind, and that we bring the Americans who are detained there home, that we find Robert Levinson and bring him home", Sherman said during a call with reporters arranged by the group National Security Action.

It is important that President Trump insist that all options are on the table when dealing with the Iranian nuclear threat. They've got to understand life, because I don't think they do understand life.

But the Iranians, who launched a drone carrying explosives into Israel from Syria three months ago, are since being battered there by intermittent airstrikes attributed to Israel, which evidently maintains air supremacy and extremely effective intelligence-gathering and is adamant that it will not allow Iran to establish a serious military presence in President Bashar Assad's bloody, anarchic country.

Israel asserts that USA -led world powers entered into the deal under a "false pretense". Treasury said that at the end of those periods, the sanctions will be in "full effect".

Mr Trump reiterated his view that the deal negotiated by President Barack Obama and five other powers was a "one-sided deal that ultimately was going to lead to nuclear proliferation".

Boeing announced the largest of its deals with Iranian airlines in December 2016: 80 jets for Iran Air - including 50 of the 737 MAX 8 model. Companies and banks doing business with Iran will have to scramble to extricate themselves or run afoul of the US government.

Saudi journalist Mashari Althaydi wrote in a column published on the Al-Arabiya news website that Iran's possession of nuclear weapons would make it necessary for Saudi Arabia to possess similar weapons for deterrence.

In a burst of last-minute diplomacy, punctuated by a visit by Britain's top diplomat, the deal's European members had given ground on many of Trump's demands for reworking the accord, according to officials, diplomats and others briefed on the negotiations. In Tehran, Rouhani sought to calm nerves, smiling as he appeared at a petroleum expo. Yesterday after Trump left the JCPOA it started regime change.
