Rouhani administration fights back against nuclear deal critics

On May 9, President Trump announced the United States withdrawal from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) or the Iran nuclear deal which limited the country's uranium enrichment in exchange for sanctions relief.

Foreign ministers from Britain, France and Germany - signatories of the 2015 deal to stop Iran developing nuclear weapons - held talks with Iranian Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif, amid concerns that the sanctions will also damage European business interests.

In a statement, British Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said after talks with his French counterpart, Jean-Yves Le Drian, that both countries were determined "to conserve the essence of the Iran nuclear deal".

"The focus of attention was on the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) regarding the Iranian nuclear program following the United States' pullout from the agreement", the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

"We stressed the commitment we all share to ensure that this will continue to be delivered and we agreed to this end to deepen our dialogue at all levels". He has provided proximate proof that any deal the (US) makes, even a successful one, may be tossed aside on the whim of this or any other president.

Iranian officials have threatened to resume enrichment.

German leader Angela Merkel also told Trump on a visit to Washington late last month that the nuclear deal was insufficient in itself to curb Iran´s ambitions in the region.

The article also said that given the fact that the success of the nuclear talks rested on mostly bilateral talks between Iran and the United States, that Europe was simply a role player then and can not become the main player now.

Washington's withdrawal from the Iran deal has upset European allies, cast uncertainty over global oil supplies and raised the risk of conflict in the West Asia.

The parties announced, "Today, we have taken a decisive step: we have reached solutions on key parameters of a Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action, " which they meant to complete by June 30.

European commissioners will discuss sanctions-blocking measures on Wednesday, opening the way for European leaders to discuss the issue at a summit in Sofia later that day. It also points to a refusal to accept that Trump's decision on Iran, fulfilling a campaign pledge to United States voters, should be allowed to upend a global agreement negotiated over years and which worldwide observers say is working. Johnson said regime change in Iran was not a policy Britain should pursue.

The bill is indicative of the increased pressure that President Hassan Rouhani's moderate administration is feeling from the hardliners to not compromise in the talks. Other options available to the European Union include siding with Iran to stigmatize the U.S.as the "violator" of the accord in the JCPOA's Joint Commission, as well as filing complaints at the World Trade Organization.

European diplomats acknowledged that the EU support, however honest, risked looking hollow after Trump reimposed an array of wide sanctions last week on Iran that will hit European companies investing there. "Those are the kinds of things that if we get what it is the president has demanded, the complete, verifiable, irreversible denuclearization of North Korea that the American people will offer in spades".
