EU leaders committed to Iran nuclear deal, concerned over Donald Trump's decision

It is reported to have a large stake in the Iranian economy, both in legal and illegal entities, with commanders also owning real estate in Tehran.

President Trump vowed to block Iran from developing nuclear weapons, and announced sanctions will be imposed in an effort to block any financing of terrorism.

The USA refused to certify Tehran is complying with the deal, which was negotiated during Barack Obama's reign and aimed to keep Iran's nuclear programme under control. "With your incorrect words, you made us more united than ever".

"We don't think that nuclear agreement should define the entire policy", said Tillerson.

President Trump says his first priority is to ensure the safety and security of the American people. The president could take such action and impose additional sanctions as part of a withdrawal decision. "This radical regime has raided the wealth of one of the world's oldest and most vibrant nations, and spread death, destruction and chaos all around the globe", he said. But world leaders have in recent weeks urged him not to withdraw his support for it.

The Riyadh government said in a statement it had supported the nuclear agreement, "but Iran took advantage of the economic gain from raising sanctions and used it to continue destabilizing the region".

Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman Bob Corker said he would propose legislation that would change the law requiring Trump to certify Iran's compliance with the nuclear deal so he would have to do so only every six months, rather than every 90 days.

Rouhani cited European criticism of Trump's Friday speech and said that "America is now, more than ever, isolated". He talked about moves to counter Iran in Yemen, Lebanon, the Persian Gulf and elsewhere.

The Treasury Department also announced new sanctions against three Iranian companies and a Chinese company for supporting the Iranian military or the IRGC.

Still, Trump's tough-guy approach could yet risk undoing years of careful diplomacy and increasing Middle East tensions.

"I am announcing today that we cannot and will not make this certification", Trump said at the White House as he unveiled a new Iran strategy of his administration.

It will be about Trump, more than Iran.

Despite his criticism of Iran and the Iran nuclear deal, Trump on Friday stopped short of abandoning the nuclear deal.

I get the feeling the picture out of Las Vegas is growing murkier, not clearer: "The chronology of events in the Las Vegas music festival shooting shifted again Friday when authorities said a hotel security guard injured by the gunman was struck just as the massacre unfolded, and not minutes earlier".

Congress must now decide whether to end the nuclear accord by "snapping back" sanctions, which Iran demanded be lifted in exchange for limiting uranium enrichment.

Mr. Trump says Iran provides support to a number of terrorist networks, threatening American troops and allies.

This victory for the "mainstreamers" who dominate Trump's national security team was not a foregone conclusion. But maybe that's the way he wants it.

James Carafano, a Heritage Foundation foreign policy expert who served on Trump's transition team, calls the president's foreign policy "pretty conventional", and cites Trump's decision to put the Iran nuclear deal in Congress's lap as one example.

So that's one of the usefulness of having this INARA amendment.
