Israeli analysts: Trump left striking Iran's nuclear facilities for Israel

"We will respect the capacity of individual countries to make their decisions about foreign policy", the PM also said.

"There's lots of flaws in the deal and one of the flaws that Trump points out, I agree, is the fact that it sunsets and doesn't prevent Iran from having a nuclear weapon in perpetuity", he told Roll Call. After all, the terms of the 2015 deal explicitly say that the restrictions "sunset" over time.

"Consultations and cooperation between Iran and France will continue in line with securing common interests as well as security and stability in the region", said the president.

The White House may find that the Europeans' calculations could quickly change, should the USA insist (packaged with a tough sanctions regime) that arranging economic agreements with the world's foremost state sponsor of terror is out of bounds. They prefer a tougher approach, the kind Trump is taking.

The European Union hopes to preserve the deal without the U.S. Germany, France and the United Kingdom all said they'd stick to their commitments.

She said Airbus will remain "in full compliance with USA sanctions and export control regulations".

The sanctions seek to punish Iran for its nuclear programme by limiting its ability to sell oil or do business overseas, affecting a wide range of Iranian economic sectors and individuals. Iran is waiting now for the European Union to show that it equally has the power, that it can protect its society and its interests... U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the companies' existing licenses to sell planes to Iran would be invalidated.

Europe - along with Russian Federation and China - should reject false claims that Iran has cheated on the deal, given that eleven rounds of JCPOA-mandated in situ inspections by the International Atomic Energy Agency have not detected any breach. "Together with the rest of the global community, we will preserve this nuclear deal".

Iranian leaders have threatened to retaliate against the United States in response to Trump's decision to abandon the landmark deal and reimpose a series of sanctions on Tehran that were lifted under the agreement.

Comcast Readying Cash Bid to Upend Fox-Disney Deal
Fox's 39% stake in the company is one of the reasons the buy-out is so attractive to both Disney and Comcast . But in the event the us government takes AT&T-Time Warner, Comcast will not aim to bid.

Netanyahu described Trump's decision as right, smart and courageous. So White House and National Security Council staff began laying the groundwork for a USA withdrawal, even as the negotiations with the Europeans were underway.

"We signed it, both the United States and France", Macron said of the pact.

But Mark Fitzpatrick, executive director for the International Institute for Strategic Studies, argued that efforts to pursue an alternative deal without the USA could lead to a shake-up of the global power dynamic.

The exhortation from Khamenei, who has the final say on all state matters, follows a pattern of Iranian leaders declaring their nation's ability to resist foreign pressure or interference.

He had reluctantly ticked off on extensions to the deal he said failed to control Iran's bad behaviour. "That is why we can not say we should get rid of it like that".

"We're doing our best to get them all back", Pompeo said.

At an event in Washington, D.C., Boeing CEO Dennis Muilenburg said the company had planned for the possibility that the USA could back out of the agreement by not committing production slots for planes slated for Iran.

The new sanctions would have consequences on Iran's economy and on the life of Iranians.

"It is absolutely incumbent upon our government to do everything we can to make sure Americans are not left behind, and that we bring the Americans who are detained there home, that we find Robert Levinson and bring him home", Sherman said during a call with reporters arranged by the group National Security Action.
