IRAN: Rouhani warns Trump of 'historic regret' over nuclear deal

Iran nuclear deal: Johnson tells Trump 'don't walk away'

For Western businesses, the deal meant access to Iran's largely untapped market of 80 million people.

The British ambassador to the United States told host Margaret Brennan that he believes the 2015 accord will be saved.

The Daily Telegraph reported on Saturday that the Iranian Government could restart high-level uranium enrichment and restrict access to its nuclear sites for inspectors if the U.S. withdraws from the deal.

"Who would make that deal?" he asked in 2016.

Here are some things to know about the accord - and what is expected if Trump decides to pull out. As president, he has been slightly more measured.

In New York last month, Zarif said that if the US withdraws, Tehran would seriously consider "resuming at much greater speed our nuclear activities", though he stopped short of threatening to produce weapons. Instead, he passed the buck to Congress, giving them the power to reimpose sanctions - or not.

The speed at which Western aeroplane manufacturers went into Iran is contrasted by a slow start by Western energy firms despite the country's vast oil and gas wealth. If that happens, it will put all of the treaty's signatories in a tricky position. Such an effort could also include pushing back on Iran's support for regional actors that threaten Western interests, such as Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and Houthi rebels in Yemen.

Iran has threatened to resume enrichment of uranium if Trump does not sign a document on May 12th authorising U.S. government agencies and banks to uphold sanctions relief.

President Hassan Rouhani said the USA would face "historic regret" if it pulled out.

"We have plans to resist any decision by Trump on the nuclear accord", Rohani said speech broadcast live by Iranian state TV.

Trump says date, place set for North Korea summit
The North Korean leader now awaits a meeting with US President Donald Trump , which is expected to take place in the coming weeks. The New York Times reported that Trump has asked the Pentagon to prepare options plans for drawing down American troops.

Johnson will push for the case to keep the Iran Nuclear deal during a two-day visit, where he will meet Vice President Mike Pence and national security adviser John Bolton, Britain said on Sunday.

What has been gained from the nuclear deal? And by all accounts Tehran has stuck to the deal's stipulations.

Even though he opposed the bargain from 2015, when it had been signed by President Obama, he said today really isn't the time to drift off from this agreement.

The possibility of the nuclear deal collapsing has raised concerns it might embolden Iran to strike Israeli targets.

Netanyahu said that the deal was "fatally flawed on weaponisation", referring to the military application of Iran's enriched uranium, and that the documents proved it was based on a lie. And he doesn't like the fact that missiles aren't covered.

Trump has said that unless European allies rectify "flaws" in Tehran's deal with world powers by May 12 he will refuse to extend USA sanctions relief for Iran.

It's not clear exactly what those fixes will look like.

The European Union has said the deal "is working and it needs to be preserved". He also seems to be hopeful that the threat of military action, either USA or Israeli, will deter Iran from resuming its nuclear activities. It's unclear whether Iran would agree to those terms. We think we're making progress. We haven't got there yet.

The comments came a few days before the U.S. president's upcoming decision about Washington's commitment to the JCPOA.

The call came in an op-ed piece in The New York Times that was signed by Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, ahead of a meeting with officials from the U.S. administration in Washington on Monday. His aim is to salvage the accord ahead of Trump's deadline Saturday. Those talks were a major focus of his recent meetings with President Emmanuel Macron of France and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and on those issues an agreement is reportedly close.
