Europeans scramble to save Iran deal after Trump reneges

European allies are completely dismayed were trying their best to rescue the international nuclear deal with Iran on Wednesday. This happened after the president of the United States backed off from the deal and pulled the United States out of the landmark accord while the nation of Iran expressed a feeling of contempt on the leader of the US, Donald Trump. Jean-Yves Le Drian who is the foreign minister of France stated that the deal is not yet dead. He mentioned that the United States may have withdrawn from the deal but the deal still exists. On the other hand, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei who is the supreme leader of Iran and had only backed the deal in an unwilling way along while remaining suspicious of Washington, He also accused Donald Trump of lying and told Trump on behalf of the people of Iran that Trump has made a mistake by backing out of the deal.

Jean-Yves Le Drian said that Emmanuel Macron who is the president of France was all set to speak sometime on this day to Hassan Rouhani, who is his Iranian counterpart also showed the willingness to talk. On Tuesday, the President of the United States, Donald Trump announced that he would re-impose the US economic sanctions on the nation of Iran for undermining what he referred to as a horrible one-sided deal, which should actually never ever have been made. The agreement in the year of 2015, which was worked out by the United States, Iran and five other world powers lifted the sanctions on Iran in return for limits on its nuclear program. The particular pact was diplomatically designed in such a way that the nation of Iran was prevented from producing a nuclear bomb.

Donald Trump complained about the deal regarding the signature foreign policy achievement of his Democratic predecessor Barack Obama and did not address the ballistic missile program of Iran for its nuclear activities beyond the year 2025 or its part in the conflicts in the nations of Syria and Yemen. The decision taken by US president Donald Trump increased the risks of further deepening the conflicts in the Middle East putting the nation of the United States on odds with all business interests and diplomats of Europe which in turn casts uncertainty over global oil supplies. The price of oil has increased more than about two percent on Wednesday with Brent hitting a high of three and half years.
