Trump opted not to extend sanctions relief on Iran ahead of a May 12 deadline, vowing instead to re-impose the U.S.'s nuclear-related economic penalties.
Iran is continuing to implement its nuclear commitments under a deal with major powers, the United Nations atomic watchdog policing the deal says, a day after President Donald Trump said the U.S. was pulling out of the accord.
Russia, which has strong relations with Iran, was a key broker in clinching the 2015 agreement created to stop Iran from building a nuclear bomb.
Iran politicians set fire to the USA flag in Parliament and chant "death to America" over Trump's decision to exit nuke deal. Last week, Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman, who was born in Moldova-part of the Soviet Union at the time-noted in a Russian-newspaper interview that Israel has not joined in Western sanctions against Russia stemming from its Crimea invasion or the poisoning of the Russian spy in the United Kingdom. The trio expressed "regret and concern" over Trump's decision and urged the U.S.to keep the structures of the agreement "intact". "We have already started constructive and mutually beneficial discussions on these issues, and the E3 is committed to continuing them", they said. "If they do, there will be very severe consequences".
The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Wednesday that the overnight air strike near Damascus killed at least 15 people, including eight Iranians. We must also address shared concerns about Irans ballistic missile programme and its destabilising regional activities, especially in Syria, Iraq and Yemen.
Given that (other than Iran) there are six signatories to the deal and seven years to go before the first sunset clause expires, Trump along with the US' European allies could have made every effort to enlist Russian Federation and China to fully cooperate. "We expect Russia's understanding and support when it comes to our vital interests".
"It is unbelievable, but 73 years after the Holocaust, there is a country in the Middle East-Iran-that is calling for the destruction of another 6 million Jews", stated Netanyahu. Iran could have also been induced to stop threatening Israel's existence to reduce the tension and prevent direct confrontation between the two countries, which in fact both sides want to avoid.
