Trudeau ought to side with Trump over Europe on Iran

"I would advise Iran not to start their nuclear program", Trump said during a Cabinet meeting at the White House on Wednesday. "If they do there will be very severe outcome".

Trump said Iran would now either negotiate or "something will happen".

Iran's Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei said Trump's speech was silly and superficial and contained 10 lies.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said the United States will "lose in the end" from its decision, while Russia's Vladimir Putin expressed his country's "deep concern" over the USA withdrawal. If the government wants to make an agreement, they should ask for a guarantee, or else [Europe] will all do just as the United States did.

To discuss how the other signatories to the Iran Nuclear Deal are working to keep the accord intact after the USA withdrawal, CGTN's Elaine Reyes spoke with George Szamuely, a senior research fellow at the Global Policy Institute with the London Metropolitan University. He added that "you have made a mistake, Trump".

And as many of its regional neighbours have complained, they have continued providing ballistic missiles to enemy actors that rain them down on countries such as Saudi Arabia.

Rouhani said Iran could resume uranium enrichment "without limit" in response to Trump's announcement, but that it would discuss its response with other parties to the deal before announcing a decision.

Trump also said economic sanctions on Iran will go into effect "very shortly".




He emphasized, "We consider Trump's decision for exiting the JCPOA as a good omen". With France's President Emmanuel Macron also warning that nuclear non-proliferation is now at stake.

"He introduced a new element, the element of leverage to a stale, non-productive reality that only encouraged the Iranians to continue their incredibly risky behaviour, particularly in Syria, by threatening Israel by surrounding it with missiles and expecting us to sit there and just wait until something happens".

"The banking system is still not connected to the global banking sector and that is because the United States is prohibiting and it's threatening banks, insurance companies and major businesses from doing business with Iran".

With a lot at stake in Iran, India on Wednesday urged the United States and its allies to engage constructively with Tehran and resolve issues arisen after Washington pulled out of the Iran nuclear deal. Yet they still left convinced he was likely to re-impose sanctions.

Ramaphosa said the South African government urged the other parties of the JCPOA to continue to honour their commitments under the agreement.

The demonstrators also issued a statement in a show of unity, saying Trump's "stupid" actions and remarks showed the imperialistic nature of the USA leaders. Many say they have not seen any benefits from the nuclear deal.

"I think very harder than today", he replied. "If you look at what's happening in the Middle East with Syria, with Yemen, with all the places they're involved - it's bedlam and death".
