Canada's Trudeau rebukes USA over scuttling Iran deal

Iran deal Trump

GETTYDonald Trump has pulled the US out of the Iran nuclear deal

President Donald Trump talks in a Cabinet meeting on May 9, 2018.

Trump said the U.S. will reimpose "the highest level" of economic penalties against Iran as it exits the 2015 deal, which previously eased sanctions so long as Tehran curbed its nuclear weapons program.

Asked by ABC News what he would do if Iran moves forward in restarting the program, Trump wasn't specific but again warned Iran of "severe outcome". One worshiper, Hassan Khedri, 24, with spiky hair and a sleeveless shirt, said: "I am an Iranian Kurd and I am ready to fight with America and Israel".

Analysts' estimates of the possible reduction in Iranian crude supplies as a result of any new USA sanctions range from 200,000 bpd to 1 million bpd.

He went on to say, "If the regime continues its nuclear aspirations, it will have bigger problems that it has ever had before".

Khamenei attacked what he called Trump's "silly and superficial" address on Tuesday, in which the USA president outlined his reasons for nixing the deal.

"With all of the places they're involved, it's bedlam and death and we can't allow that to happen", he said, adding: "They've gotta understand life". Trump said the Obama-era deal failed to contain Iran's nuclear ambitions, announcing that the United States will re-impose sanctions on Tehran.

Congressman Norcross said that Pakistan and India both faced the same security challenges, which also concerned the United States. Additionally, non-diplomatic number plates given to hide diplomatic status for protection will also be taken back, it added.

By exiting the Iranian nuclear deal, President Donald Trump made it harder to persuade North Korea to give up its nuclear weapons program - while giving Iran reason to contemplate restarting a program it had moth-balled.

Trump announced on Tuesday that the USA was withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal, adding the U.S. People are guessing right now at the moment the oil production in Iran is 3,8 million barrels a day, that was the output in March; and the export is between 2 and 2,5 million barrels a day.

Iran is entirely right to condemn Trump's action. "Iran has no obligation to honor its commitments under the current situation", parliamentary speaker Ali Larijani said Wednesday, CNN reported.

Trump also pointed to Iran's actions in countries including Syria and Yemen.

"Bolton has been extremely explicit about his desire for a military confrontation", Parsi said. "I just don't think that it's a wise move", Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake told CNN, adding that it makes the United States less reliable in the eyes of both its partners and adversaries.

In Mr Trump's announcement of the withdrawal from the deal he said the agreement was "defective at its core". "It didn't bring calm".

The US President's decision to abandon the agreement has shocked the world, with America's closest allies such as France, Germany and the United Kingdom expressing concern over it while Iran's foes Israel and Saudi Arabia welcoming the move.
