US President Donald Trump announced on Tuesday that his country would withdraw from the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) between the P5 +1 and the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Oil-rich Saudi Arabia has long said it would match any Iranian weapons development, but Jubeir's renewed vow came after US President Donald Trump pulled the United States out of an accord created to prevent Tehran's path to a bomb. In response to the USA decision, Iranian President Hassan Rouhani said Tehran would bypass Washington and negotiate with the other signatories of the deal. "And hopefully, that won't be the case".

"The kingdom supports and welcomes the steps announced by the USA president toward withdrawing from the nuclear deal. and reinstating economic sanctions against Iran", Saudi Arabia's foreign ministry said.

Trump's decision could have explosive consequences, straining long-standing USA alliances, disrupting oil markets and boosting tensions in the Middle East, even if the United States reversal doesn't lead Iran to restart its atomic program.

Trump yesterday argued that the deal struck by the previous Obama administration and world powers was "defective at its core" and that he would pull out and reimpose sanctions on Iran, the world's fifth-biggest oil producer. But they're going to lose huge, huge dollar benefits 'cause they won't be able to deal with the United States.

"I don't claim to be a Trump expert", Malley, now head of conflict resolution think tank the International Crisis Group, told AFP. "If they do there will be very severe effect". We know that the plan's diplomatic approach slowed Iran's nuclear program, although it may not have stopped it completely.

"UK businesses with an interest in the region will be taking careful advice about the potential impact of sanctions on their operations, but the effect can only be another chilling of investment in Iran".

Moreover, Trump and his top officials repeatedly violated the accord, warning foreign companies against doing business with Iran while leaving the implementation of USA commitments in doubt.

That's a no-brainer for this president, who "spent more than a year studying the deal", Bolton writes.

Geng said that China, which has for years been a close economic partner with Iran, will "carry on the normal and transparent pragmatic cooperation with Iran on the basis of not violating our global obligation".

If those sanctions kick in for European companies, it could poison the atmosphere between the United States and those allies, making coordination on a reconfigured deal less likely.

Boeing's European rival, Airbus, is also set to lose a major deal if US sanctions are reinstated.

In Iran, many are deeply concerned about how Trump's decision could affect the already struggling economy.

The US will now reinstate all the sanctions it had waived as part of the nuclear accord, and it will impose additional economic penalties that are now being drawn up by the Treasury Department, The New York Times reported.

It is shaping up as a discussion that will expose a major cleavage between the US and its G7 partners.

Iran's state-run television broadcaster carried the announcement at 10 a.m. local time, and Iran's state-run IRNA news agency also carried a report on it.

"We have a president who is tough", Trump's personal attorney Rudy Giuliani told exiled Iranian opposition figures at the weekend.
