What will be the impact of US's exit from Iran Nuclear Deal?

Europeans scramble to save Iran deal after Trump reneges How Shell could be hit by Iran deal pull-out

EU Foreign Policy Chief Federica Mogherini will meet with foreign ministers from the UK, France and Germany today to discuss the future of the Iran nuclear deal after the United States president has announced his intention to withdraw from the accord.

French President Emmanuel Macron held phone talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, according to a Kremlin statement, which said they had "confirmed Russia and France's commitment to make the deal work".

Major European powers have sought to keep Iran in a landmark worldwide nuclear agreement after President Donald Trump pulled the US out of the pact and promised tough economic sanctions against Tehran.

He will meet with Federica Mogherini, the European Union foreign policy chief and the foreign ministers of the UK, Germany and France.

Oil tanker owners are facing a nervous wait to find out whether they can carry on doing business with Iran after President Trump said on Tuesday he was reinstating a raft of sanctions against the Persian Gulf country. "The agreement against nuclear weapons in Iran is an agreement that certainly has weaknesses, but an agreement that we should stand for".

As those sanctions kick in, it will have an even broader effect as well, Bolton said.?The issue here is what the Europeans are going to do.

Israel accused the Quds Force - the elite overseas operations arm of Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) - of launching 20 rockets at its military positions in Syria on Thursday morning.

What are the latest U.S. sanctions moves? Further India will find it more hard to balance its relations between US, Saudi Arabia and Israel on one hand and its relations with Iran on the other.

They try to reason with the nightmare caricature of Yankee chauvinism; then to flatter to him; finally, they beg him, as though asking the USA not to sabotage its own interests is some kind of favor.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has acknowledged that the Iran nuclear deal "certainly has weaknesses" but says it should be preserved.

Treasury yields surge pushes Wall Street lower
The Shanghai Composite index dropped 0.3 percent to 3,183.28 and shares in Southeast Asia were lower while Taiwan advanced. The S&P 500 posted 10 new 52-week highs and seven new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 82 new highs and 51 new lows.

Under the deal, Iran permanently altered a heavy water nuclear power plant to prevent it from ever producing plutonium for a bomb.

"This was an agreement which was deliberately kept narrow to deal with Iran's nuclear program".

After the USA pullout from the accord, Iran had said that they will respect the deal with other signatories.

"We do not see ourselves as a mediator between Iran and the U.S.", he said.

The White House backed Israel's claims, accusing Iran of "reckless actions" that posed a "severe threat" to stability in West Asia.

Bolton in the past has suggested the USA government should push for a change in government in Iran.

But the government of President Hassan Rouhani faces political challenges at home, where the economy was already suffering high unemployment and inflation before Trump's decision. "Or do we want to say we have our economic interests, we consider we will continue to do trade with Iran?". Quite the contrary, it provided cover for Iran to continue its efforts.

Bruno Le Maire said Friday on Europe-1 radio that Europe should not accept that the U.S.is the "world's economic policeman".

Each company and bank will have to decide whether to risk being cut off from the US financial system.

Europe may be ready to treat Trump as adversary.
