Iranian President Hassan Rouhani tells the UN General Assembly it would be a "great pity" if the landmark 2015 nuclear deal between Iran and world powers including the U.S. "were to be destroyed by rogue newcomers to the world of politics". It's likely that Trump will announce his intentions in the next few days, and whatever he decides with certainly have a dramatic effect on the fragile efforts towards peace in the Middle East. If the U.S. tries to activate globally enforceable sanctions on Iran again, European countries could balk, another potential repercussion Trump must weigh.
Donald Trump described the deal as 'an embarrassment' and accused Iran of exporting 'violence, bloodshed and chaos'.
Over the past few weeks the world has been watching the U.S., and pushing back on ditching the deal. In their brief remarks to the press, Trump and Abbas expressed hope that they would be able to bring a lasting and peaceful resolution of the Israel-Palestine conflict.
Venezuela has been brought "to the brink of total collapse" by the socialist dictator Nicolas Maduro.
"By violating its international commitments the new US administration only destroys its own credibility", he said, reiterating Iran's assurance that Tehran is not planning to develop nuclear weapons. He said it is important to "make the deal work" because as the deadline looms closer the situation gets more tense. So we need to start discussions on what happens afterwards.
The International Atomic Energy Association, using site visits, satellite imagery and other ways of monitoring, has verified that Iran is meeting its terms of the deal, something US officials have reaffirmed.
"One country in particular has used its veto as many times in the last five years as in the whole of the second half of the Cold War".
Trump said that he has decided what to do about the Iran deal, which he has strongly and repeatedly criticised, but he did not say what that decision was.
Trump hinted in his speech to the annual gathering of world leaders that he may not recertify the agreement, negotiated by his predecessor, Barack Obama.
But he declined to say what he had decided. He described Mr. Trump's thinking as "very deliberative", saying he is studying if the deal serves the interests of the American people.
"We cannot let a murderous regime continue these destabilizing activities while building dangerous missiles", the US President said.
Participants in the United Against Nuclear Iran conference (UANI) agreed they see flaws in the 2015 deal, which offered incentives to Iran in return for guarantees that it would not develop nuclear weapons.
What does the United States do?
She was speaking after the ministerial meeting of the Six (five permanent members of the UN Security Council and Germany) and Iran that took place on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.
"The JCPOA has no other conditions", Rouhani said.
"It's not a clear signal he plans to withdraw". "But it will respond decisively and resolutely to its violation by any party".
