Bolton warns sanctions possible for businesses dealing with Iran

Bolton warns sanctions possible for businesses dealing with Iran

Reacting to Trump's decision, Tehran said it would for now stay in the deal, pending talks with Russia, China and the three European signatories before coming up with a decision on the future of the deal. Yet the billionaire, fascist-minded demagogue accused Iran of being "the world's leading state sponsor of terror", whose "malign" and "sinister" activities have caused "havoc" in the Middle East.

Meanwhile, Lavrov said that Russian Federation and Europe had a duty to "jointly defend their legal interests" in terms of the Iran deal.

But the measures have never been used and may be hard to enforce, while European Union companies could still face asset seizures, fines and possibly criminal charges in the United States. The wars the U.S. has waged, fomented, and aided and abetted in the greater Middle East over the course of the past quarter-century have blown up complex societies, from Afghanistan and Iraq to Libya, Syria and Yemen. Unfortunately, his public statements do not seem grounded in genuine familiarity with it.

Iran has threatened to resume "industrial scale" uranium enrichment "without any restrictions" if it does not get guarantees that the trade ties which have been established with Europe since the deal was signed will be maintained. This was besides the condition that Iran would abide by the demands of International Atomic Energy Agency to inspect the nuclear establishments as and when they desire. USA intelligence agencies and worldwide organizations have verified that it has been complying with the agreement.

Fellow signatories to the deal have been quick to denounce Trump's decision.

"I'm not the national security decision-maker", Bolton said, adding that Trump "makes the decision and the advice that I give him is between us". President Trump will likely discover later, that a completely coercive action is less effective than a multilateral approach accepted by the rest of the world. There is absolutely no reason to think that the Trump administration on its own could reach a better deal than the Obama administration did by working in concert with the worldwide community.

The Trump administration portrayed its rejection of the nuclear agreement as a response, in part, to Tehran's interventions in the Middle East, underpinning Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's tough line towards Iran.

Changing the regime in Iran is "not the policy of the administration, " Bolton said on ABC.

Iran has no reason to include the United States in any further discussions.

Finance ministers in France and Germany pushed Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to grant extensions or waivers to businesses that made lucrative deals with Tehran in the period that sanctions were lifted.

Now they will be the ones acting to preserve worldwide peace while America falls to the sidelines. If it had been fully implemented, the constraints put on Iran and the verification process would have "prevented" it from acquiring nuclear weapons.
