Bolton says 'it's possible' US will sanction European companies working with Iran

Trump's Iran deal exit raises regime change specter

While Trump's withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal might be meant to show Kim Jong Un that the U.S. president follows through with his threats, it may also reinforce fears that Washington's negotiations can not be taken seriously - and that Pyongyang still needs its nuclear deterrent to ensure its survival. So, what happens next?

Interviewed by Sputnik, several Iranian and Russian political analysts spoke about the impact Trump's decision may have and how it could reflect on Tehran's nuclear cooperation with Russia.

Germany and France have significant trade links with Iran and remain committed to the nuclear agreement, as does Britain, and the three countries' foreign ministers plan to meet on Tuesday to discuss it. If history is any guide, there is little chance of this happening, so we are now on a course of escalating confrontation.

On Tuesday, US President Donald Trump dumped the worldwide Iranian nuclear deal, saying that Washington will not extend the waiver for the unilateral sanctions against Tehran.

"We made the case for keeping the deal at every level". The impact will be on those remaining in the Iran nuclear deal, especially the nations which, under UN rules, are allowed to buy Iranian crude oil but could be stymied by sanctions via the U.S. banking system. "If not, it simply ignores them", Beheshtipour said.

Now, European manufacturer Airbus may offer a preview on how businesses respond to the US sanctions threat. They are talking about how they can protect their companies from American sanctions, and how they might retaliate.

"You can not say that Iran is in compliance unless you are 100 percent certain that the IAEA and our intelligence are infallible", said USA national security advisor John Bolton.

President Donald Trump delivered on his election promise of making America pull out of the Iran nuclear deal which was signed in 2015.

According to reports, including AP's, Europe was ready to play ball with Trump on increasing pressure on Iran to curb its missile program and to loosen restrictions on inspections of nuclear facilities. The language of the sanctions legislation outlines a 180-day window, meaning it's too soon for Iranian oil flows to be limited in real terms. A 20 percent reduction was an unofficial rule of thumb during the Obama era.

He then said pre-existing USA sanctions on Iran would be reinstated, telling reporters: "Powerful sanctions will go into full effect".

"So there will be a wind-down period of those sanctions but we're going to be pressing ahead with the President's goal of having a new deal".

Iranian political scientist Mani Mehrabi said that the United States withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal was anticipated and is another USA attempt to extract concessions from Tehran. Both the IEA and Saudi Arabia issued statements saying they will monitor the status of the oil market and step in if a shortage materializes.

Despite this, markets were held in check by a rise in United States drilling for new oil production. The country, the third-biggest producer of crude within the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries, exported about 2.6 million barrels per day (bpd) in April.

A lot depends on what Iran does next.

"It is not yet clear which concrete sanctions the US will impose".

In the meantime, Saudi Arabia has pledged to help stabilize global oil markets in the wake of the Trump administration's decision.

After rallying more than 3 percent in the previous session, the price for oil was cooling off early Thursday.

At the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, a reliable opponent of the Iran deal, analysts were baffled.
