After months of threatening to undo the Iran nuclear deal, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), Donald Trump once again opted to extend the deal by waiving economic sanctions on Iran. This was the “last chance,” he declared in a Jan. 12 statement, “to either fix the deal’s disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.”
British Prime Minister Theresa May has affirmed support for the 2015 nuclear agreement between Iran and six world powers in the face of the US administration's harsh rhetoric and threats to "terminate" it.
The European Union and Russia on Friday threw their support behind a landmark agreement struck with Iran in 2015 over its nuclear program, saying the international was working and all sides should stick to their commitments.
Alarmed that President Trump may soon take steps that could unravel the international nuclear agreement with Iran, more than 80 disarmament experts urged him on Wednesday to reconsider and said the accord was working.
The US President Barack Obama got closer to his needed votes to protect Iran nuclear deal in the Congress after two more Democratic senators said on Tuesday that they would back the July 14 nuclear deal with Iran.
