'Severe consequences' if Iran restarts nuclear activity, warns Trump

The comments came a day after Trump announced he was withdrawing the USA from the accord with Iran, abruptly restoring harsh sanctions in the most consequential foreign policy action of his presidency.

The 2015 agreement imposed restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in return for the lifting of most USA and global sanctions. Rouhani himself offered a litany of complaints after Trump's speech about American interference in Iran, dating back to a 1953 CIA-backed coup that overthrew the country's elected prime minister.

Earlier, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei chastised Mr Trump, while MPs set fire to a USA flag inside parliament, shouting, "Death to America!".

Iranian barrels can be easily substituted for Iraqi crudes, he added. "We always knew Iran was making a nuclear bomb, and they continued and got what the wanted, so it's good that Trump and Netanyahu did this together". Iranian airlines were not included in our order backlog. They include businessman Morad Tahbaz, gallery owner Karan Vafadari, Baquer and Siamak Namazi, a father and son, and Xiyue Wang, a Princeton PhD candidate. And the Iranians must be held accountable for this.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif told CNN in a 2014 interview that he had not seen evidence that proves Levinson was even in Iran.

Trump called the deal "a awful deal that should never, ever have been made", yesterday in a speech from the White House before signing a presidential memorandum to officially exit the USA from the agreement and reinstate blistering sanctions on the Iranian regime.

The Iran deal was the result of a long negotiation process during the second term of President Barack Obama.

Iran's government must now decide whether to follow the USA and withdraw or try to salvage what's left with the Europeans. "What I think the Trump administration is doing is putting the pieces into place to have a major confrontation with Iran".


Rouhani, considered a moderate by Iranian standards, joined in the criticism of the U.S., and said, "The U.S.is a country that has never adhered to its commitments".

The Jerusalem Post approached people at random on a main street in the Tel Aviv center and of all those who agreed to talk, not one expressed opposition to the United States move.

"The only regular channel that existed between the USA and Iran was the JCPOA", Parsi said.

United States crude imports from Iran are negligible; Asian and European countries are the main purchasers.

As Pompeo flew from North Korea to Japan with the three Korean-American detainees on Wednesday, he was asked about the perception some might have that the USA was leaving some Americans behind while picking others.

"If the United States falls out of compliance with the deal, then it is up to every other member of the deal to decide how they want to proceed", Sherman said.

The move was somewhat anticipated, as the president has been a longtime critic of the agreement, but conflicting reports from sources had pushed prices lower early Tuesday. Jafari said that "it was clear that the Americans are not trustworthy". European Union officials have suggested they'll do what they can to salvage the agreement.

"It might make Iran change its path", he said hopefully. The US Treasury Secretary commented that the US has had conversations with various parties that would be willing to increase oil supplies to offset Iranian losses.
