France, Germany and the United Kingdom, also known as the E3, said they remain committed to the "binding" Iranian nuclear deal, despite the withdrawal of the US, but uncertainty remains high, Kallanish Energy reports. "We accepted the JCPOA, but enmities with the Islamic Republic did not end", he said.

Washington has given European firms doing business in Iran up to six months to wind up investments or risk USA sanctions and they are also forbidden from signing any new contracts with Iran.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas acknowledged, however, that protecting European companies from potential USA penalties could be hard.

Iran has always denied it sought a nuclear weapon and accuses Israel of stirring up world suspicions against it. Iran and Israel have been skirmishing in a series of escalating military encounters in the air over Syria. Trump's strength was that he did not need unity, Beyer added.

While Trump's move on Tuesday ratcheted up regional tensions and widened a rift with USA allies in Europe, no one is predicting an American invasion of Iran.

Ross sees that escalating tension as one of the unintended consequences of pulling out of the JCPOA. It seems clear that, from Trump's perspective, the Iran deal and the diplomatic advances with North Korea are closely related - and that his policy of "maximum pressure" is paying off. The New York Times, which is an expert at war propaganda, deception and forgery, felt professionally affronted that Washington was associating itself with so crude a performance, headlining its editorial response 'Netanyahu's Flimflam on Iran'.

"I would say Russian Federation will benefit most from a withdrawal from Iran by European and other worldwide companies".

The ministry said Iran's compliance with the deal has been confirmed by periodic reports of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).

Both leaders made humiliating pilgrimages to Washington to beg Trump to stick with the Iran deal, only to see him withdraw - and on the eve of "Europe Day", a public holiday for the European Union institutions. "When I make promises, I keep them". Europeans fear a collapse of the deal could intensify conflicts in the Middle East. Having left the deal, we are less likely to obtain a replacement. "The circumstances I'm in now is that I'm the national security adviser to the President".

"Egypt stresses importance of the involvement of the concerned Arab states in any dialogue on the future of the Middle East, particularly, in relation to possible changes to the Iranian nuclear deal", the Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Earlier this month, Israel's Transportation and Intelligence Minister, Yisrael Katz, was quoted by Arutz Sheva (Israel National News) in praise of a United States air strike on Syria and claiming that "We need another 100,000 settlers in the Golan".
