Iranian officials offered no immediate reaction to Trump's upcoming decision.

The 2015 deal had placed unprecedented restrictions on Iran's nuclear program in exchange for billions of dollars in sanctions relief.

Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said the us withdrawal from the nuclear deal was a devastating blow.

Trump's repudiation of the strongly supported Iran nuclear agreement suggests to European powers that the USA is trying to satisfy its immediate foreign policy aim to roll back Iranian, Russian and possibly Chinese power in the Middle East at a time and manner of U.S. choosing.

Other signatories, including major trade partner Beijing, also promised to work to uphold the accord. In the coming weeks, we will see how the Europeans deal with this challenge.

President Donald Trump speaks during a cabinet meeting at the White House on Wednesday. The deal delayed, rather than denied, Iran's nuclear program and ignored other elements of Iranian bad behavior.

The Iran deal was one of the crowning diplomatic achievements of former President Barack Obama's tenure, but it has continued to be a divisive issue in Washington since it came to fruition in 2015.

Also blaming Tehran for Bashar al-Assad's crime in Syria, he said Iran continues its malign activities in Syria and across the region including in Yemen, Bahrain, Saudi Arabia, and Lebanon.

Giuliani resigns from law firm amid legal work for Trump
Jay Sekulow, a lawyer on Trump's legal team, did not immediately respond to CNBC's request for comment on Giuliani's announcement. The payment was made by Cohen prior to the 2016 election to keep private an affair between Daniels and Trump.

"The ballistic missile efforts they [Iran] have, cyberattacks they have been conducting, and the threats to global commerce whether it be out of the Red Sea where we have seen it most recently or backup in the Persian Gulf where it has relented over the last several months", Mattis enumerated, addressing all of what he described as the threats that Iran constitutes. It also agreed to reduce its stockpile of enriched uranium by 98% and limit uranium enrichment to 3.67%.

On Wednesday, he claimed the deal "was going to lead to nuclear proliferation all over the Middle East" and bragged the sanctions would be among the strongest "that we've ever put on a country". "It provides a framework of confidence under which the Islamic Republic of Iran can pursue the development of its nuclear capabilities for civilian purposes".

The statement noted that the United Nations Security Council had unanimously approved the Iran deal, known formally as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (or J.C.P.O.A.), in 2015, and said that it "remains the binding worldwide legal framework for the resolution of the dispute about the Iranian nuclear programme". Governments, diplomats, and military leaders will have to figure out what comes next.

When asked whether the USA would launch a unilateral attack if Iran returned to its nuclear weapon program, Mattis described the question as a "hypothetical scenario", adding that Washington will pursue the diplomatic path in order to persuade Iran.

Ramaphosa said the South African government urged the other parties of the JCPOA to continue to honour their commitments under the agreement.

He added that, despite the United States government withdrawing from the agreement, it should not prevent the remaining parties from honouring their commitments to the agreement.

Rouhani for his part said Iran's economic interests would however need to be "guaranteed" in light of Trump's decision, the Iranian presidency's website said. Canada is planning to lift sanctions against Iran as well, as our companies vie to do business with the Iranian regime.

"But for Canada's goal, we make our decisions around foreign policy here in Ottawa, not in Washington, not elsewhere".
