Macron calls friend Trump, angry over his Iran nuclear move

Incredibly, the Obama administration approved enrichment capabilities for Iran that the Ford administration had denied to Iran when it was a USA ally, before the 1979 revolution.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a statement citing actions in Syria and Saudi Arabia.

Meanwhile, the U.S. government tried to further squeeze Iran's finances by disrupting a currency exchange network allegedly used to transfer millions of dollars to Iran's Revolutionary Guard. But with the Trump administration already threatening to sanction European firms that continue to do business with Iran, it is unclear if the deal can survive without the world's leading economic power and most important reserve currency.

Demonstrators rallied in Tehran following Friday prayers to protest Trump's move.

A photo on the official Instagram site of supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei showed him reading a Farsi translation of Michael Wolff's scabrous account of the Trump White House, "The Fire and the Fury", quickly picking up more than 100,000 likes. I have opposed the Iran Deal since its inception and I applaud President Trump for ending the United States participation in a deal that never stood to benefit the United States or our allies.

There will be "wind down" periods of 90 to 180 days for existing Iran contracts for companies working with Iran to roll up their cooperation with Tehran.

The comments by Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami followed a week of escalating tensions that threaten to spill over into a wider conflict between the two bitter enemies.

According to the Israeli military, Iranian forces targeted Israeli Defense Forces "forward positions" in the Syrian Golan Heights, which have been occupied by Israel since 1967. After Friday Prayers in Tehran, the hardliners hit the streets, reports CBS News' Elizabeth Palmer. S.to simply withdraw from this deal, it also means that other countries can withdraw as well, " he said. The European Union, meanwhile, is considering a so-called "blocking statute" that would ban any EU company from complying with the USA sanctions.

Iran reiterated that no provisions or timeframes in the 2015 agreement "are negotiable in any manner".

He added that after the peaceful nature of the Iranian nuclear program was confirmed by the IAEA at least 11 times, the United States had no reason whatsoever to either prevent Russian Federation from cooperating with Iran in nuclear energy or introduce sanctions on Russia's nuclear energy agency Rosatom.

Responsing to Trump's announcement on Tuesday, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani slammed the USA decision and said he had ordered the foreign ministry to soon begin negotiations with the deal's other signatories.

Iran never stopped doing anything because of the Iran Nuclear Deal. "They will never abandon the United States for us", said housewife Poormoslem. The grouping includes Kazakhstan, Belarus, Armenia and Kyrgyzstan.

So far, China, France, Russia, the U.K., European Union and Iran remain in the accord, which placed controls on Iran's nuclear program and led to a relaxation of American economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there. That would be a good thing - while we're talking, we're not shooting - and Trump would have achieved something worthwhile. It is there to keep presidents from becoming kings who enter into deals and alliances with other nations without the consent of the people, through their representatives.

But she emphasised that numerous problems began long before Trump's move last Tuesday. "It's a UN Security Council Resolution and it belongs to the entire world", said Mogherini, who will chair talks Tuesday with the British, French, German and Iranian foreign ministers in Brussels.
