Trudeau regrets Trump decision to pull out of Iran nuclear agreement

Barack Obama

President Trump has always been critical of the Obama-era agreement, calling it an "embarrassment" and "one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the United States has ever entered into". "There's an American withdrawal from the deal but the deal is still there", French Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian said.

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson spoke in British parliament on Wednesday, warning the United States against trying to undermine the Iran nuclear deal after pulling out of it and said Washington should "spell out" its plans.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Geng Shuang told reporters Wednesday that "ensuring the integrity and sanctity" of the agreement was important for upholding the global nonproliferation regime and promoting peace and stability in the Middle East.

The U.S. faced a May 12 deadline to decide whether or not to remain in the Iran nuclear deal. "Britain has no intention of walking away", he said.

Trump defied the wishes of major world powers by announcing Tuesday that the United States would pull out of the historic nuclear accord and impose new sanctions on Tehran.

"After engaging with the US Administration in a thorough manner over the past months, we call on the US to do everything possible to preserve the gains for nuclear non-proliferation brought about by the JCPoA [Iran deal], by allowing for a continued enforcement of its main elements", the statement read.

Iranians reacted with sadness, resignation and defiance to U.S. President Donald Trump's withdrawal from the nuclear deal.

"They're completely wrong. We had a rotten deal Iran", Bolton said on "Fox & Friends".

However, many analysts said that the presentation had merely re-hashed what was already known about Iran's previous activities.

"Trump does not have the mental capacity to deal with issues", Larijani said.

"If we do nothing, we know exactly what will happen". We don't do something just because the United States does it.

The US move was opposed by the UK, France and Germany, and a statement from HM Treasury said: "The UK Government continues to fully support expanding our trade relationship with Iran and encourages UK businesses to take advantage of the commercial opportunities that arise".

Germany, France and Britain will "do everything" to ensure that Iran remains in the landmark 2015 nuclear deal, Merkel vowed.

Iran has always denied seeking a nuclear weapon, insisting its atomic program was for civilian purposes.

"President, you are right about Iran" in bold letters, is signed by Harper, former Australian prime minister John Howard, Nobel Peace Prize victor and former Northern Ireland prime minister William Trimble, and other former politicians and writers, including John Baird, former Canadian foreign affairs minister.
