Iran to US: 'Historic regret' if nuke deal scrapped

While observers believe that Trump will stay in the deal after the May 12 deadline, the President has not given anything away, even in the face of intense lobbying by U.S. allies, including the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

It all came about with a Monday night bonanza at the end of April, featuring a display of turning intelligence into the raw material of crude politics, a lights-and-camera briefing designed to draw in the ratings and interest of foreign television networks.

While in Washington, Johnson will meet US Vice-President Mike Pence, National Security Adviser John Bolton and foreign policy leaders in Congress.

In a desperate move President Hassan Rouhani's administration decided to set a unified rate and try to strictly monitor the market to prevent speculation.

Now, though, he is considering whether to restore U.S. sanctions against the country.

This extravagant display had the express purpose not only of tarring the country and its leadership, but also with keeping members of his Cabinet in check. What Iran wants is our interests to be guaranteed by its non-American signatories.

Writing in the New York Times, Johnson described the deal as a means to "counter Tehran's aggressive regional behaviour" and urged Trump to "improve the handcuffs" on Iran "rather than break them".

The chairman of the House Armed Services Committee also said Sunday that he "would counsel against" Trump pulling the U.S. out of the deal this week.

Matthew Bunn is professor of practice at Harvard Kennedy School and coprincipal investigator with the Project on Managing the Atom at the Kennedy School's Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs.

They also stressed the independent role of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in inspecting and monitoring Iran's nuclear activities.

By contrast, if Trump walks out of the deal on May 12, the United States will be isolated.

"A deal that enables Iran to keep and hide all its nuclear weapons know-how is a horrible deal", he said.

"I thought it was a bad deal", he said.

But Mr Trump has been a vocal critic of the agreement and in January issued an ultimatum to "either fix the deal's disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw". Trump has repeatedly warned that he might ultimately terminate the agreement reached under his predecessor Barack Obama.

Exchange shop windows that once showed rates for Iranian rial to U.S. dollar transactions have gone blank, as black-market rates have skyrocketed to 70,000 rials to the dollar, far higher than the newly government-imposed rate of 42,000 for $1.

"This should include a series of exemptions and carve-outs for European companies already involved in strategic areas of trade and investment with Iran, with the priority being to limit the immediate shock to Iranian oil exports", she wrote Wednesday.

The Israeli investigators were reportedly contacted by Trump's aides after his visit to Israel in May 2017, in which he promised Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu that the U.S. would never allow Iran to develop or possess nuclear weapons.
