In a lengthy government statement, the Iranian government warned that it would take "whatever reciprocal measures it deems expedient" if it is not fully compensated for the USA withdrawal from the nuclear agreement as provided for in the accord.
But now, Trump says the USA will withdraw from the global nuclear agreement.
US President Donald Trump announces his decision on the Iran nuclear deal in the Diplomatic Reception Room at the White House on May 8, 2018. He is expected to unveil his decision by May 12.
The White House has called for more worldwide pressure on Tehran as military tensions between Iran and Israel intensify.
Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders says in a statement that the "information provides new and compelling details about Iran's efforts to develop missile-deliverable nuclear weapons". German Chancellor Angela Merkel said possibilities to save the deal without Washington needed to be discussed with Tehran, while France's Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire said EU states would propose sanctions- blocking measures to the European Commission.
After President Donald Trump announced the USA withdrawal from the agreement, all eyes are now on Europe: will it be able to deliver enough incentives to Iran to continue being part of the deal?
Iran has said it had asked Europe's Airbus to announce whether it would go ahead with a plane deal with Tehran following the U.S. pull-out. "We need to unite to dismember the arm of the evil that is spreading itself in every place", Netanyahu said, adding that Israeli "policy is clear". And Europe didn't extend an invitation to President Hassan Rouhani to visit.
In Tehran, a prominent Iranian cleric threatened two Israeli cities with destruction if the Jewish state "acts foolishly" and retaliates against it again. The semi-official Fars news agency, believed to be close to the Revolutionary Guard, dismissed Netanyahu's speech as a "propaganda show". Total volume traded was about 9 percent above the 100-day average. That is to say, South Korea imports crude oil and exports petroleum goods. "Trump's move this week strengthens the hardliners, who are happy he did what he did". Although Trump railed against Iranian expansionism, he has proposed pulling 2,000 USA special forces out of Syria, which has already emboldened Tehran.
She added that the United States can not undo the agreement by pulling out, saying: "this deal is not a bilateral treaty". Now, Iran will likely up the pressure on those US troops and on USA soldiers in Iraq. In exchange, the signatories of the deal agreed to lift sanctions that had crippled the Iranian economy for years.
In 2015, he wrote an opinion piece published in The New York Times calling for air strikes on Iran's nuclear facilities.
In a nationally televised address, Netanyahu said Israel recently uncovered 55,000 documents and 183 CDs of information from Iran's "nuclear archives".
"While prices are now rising on Trump's decision to reimpose sanctions on Iran, we may see some limitations to the rally as any lost volumes can be supplied by other producing nations".
