Liberals defended the deal as imperfect but the only viable way of at least delaying Iran's development of nuclear weapons without resorting to war. Trump told reporters Wednesday the United States will impose some of the strongest sanctions on Iran ever and that the United States will work toward a deal with Tehran that will ensure the world's safety.

The other major powers involved in the deal - Britain, Germany, France, Russia and China - have promised to uphold the deal that has forced Iran to scale down its nuclear activities in return for sanctions relief.

The prospects of saving the deal depend in large measure on whether global companies are willing and able to still do business with Iran due to the USA sanctions.

"We held real discussions with the Israeli government for about a month before the decision and especially during the past two weeks".

European Union foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini insisted that it's not up to the U.S.to determine the deal's future anyway. Conservatives hailed Trump's move as bold and necessary because the deal was weighed heavily in Iran's favor. The sanctions will not only bar US companies from doing business with Iran, but they also will hurt European and other companies by prohibiting them from using American banks unless they cut links with Iran. They assured that Trump thinks that putting economic and political pressures on Iran will make the needed changes.

The two leaders also looked forward to Mr Trump's visit to the United Kingdom in July, Downing Street said. The Trump administration would have to put in place staff and mechanisms to monitor compliance with U.S. sanctions, a process that could take months, giving some leeway to renegotiate a deal.

"We're out of the deal".

Barkan said Trump's tough stance comes straight out of his book, "The Art of the Deal" and should surprise no one.

And Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin made it clear that Washington was acting "under both our primary and secondary sanctions authorities", meaning that European firms with investments or operations in the United States could be targeted if they continue to trade with Iran.

Describing the United States talks with Europeans, Peek said, "These are good building blocks to move forward as we engage with the Europeans". Although no evidence was presented, the President said the documents were enough proof that Iran lied and should not be trusted.

Zarif's comments are departure from the Iranian official line, which is that the Islamic Republic is not interested and has never pursued nuclear offensive capabilities.

There are six other nations who signed the agreement with the expectation that they would all honor it, so Trump's decision could impact our relationships with our European allies. "In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to reinstate nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime".

But she added: "If everybody does what they like, then this is bad news for the world".

"The period of American hesitance is over, and a deep sense of guilt over some past policies toward Iran or the Middle East has been replaced by unapologetic national confidence", Wurmser tells JNS.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani made a statement on Tuesday warning, "I have directed the Atomic Energy Agency to prepare for the next steps, if necessary, to begin our own industrial enrichment without restriction", if the other countries who signed the deal and Iran can not come to a conclusion.

In a statement, President Hassan Rouhani said: "I have ordered the foreign ministry to negotiate with the European countries, China and Russian Federation in the coming weeks".
