Trump advises Iran not to resume its nuclear program

Por DamianToo

President Donald Trump warned Iran last Wednesday not to resume its nuclear weapons program, a day after announcing that the United States was withdrawing from the nuclear agreement. "I would advise Iran not to start its nuclear program", Trump told reporters before opening a meeting with the cabinet. "I strongly advise you. If they do, there will be very serious consequences. "

On the eve, Trump announced that the United States was withdrawing from the agreement signed by Iran with the Western powers and re-implanted the harsh economic sanctions against the Islamic Republic, as the most important foreign policy of his presidency. He declared that this contributed to global security, but deepened his isolation on the world stage and rekindled doubts about the credibility of his government with a plot that contradicts the analysis of US intelligence and other countries.

The 2015 agreement, negotiated by the government of Barack Obama with support from Germany, France and Great Britain, had lifted most of the international economic sanctions. In exchange, Iran accepted severe restrictions on its nuclear plan that prevent it from manufacturing a bomb and undergo rigorous inspections. But Trump, an energetic critic of the deal since the 2016 election campaign, said Tuesday in a speech from the White House that it was "flawed to the core".

On Wednesday, he assured that the agreement "will cause nuclear proliferation throughout the Middle East" and he boasted that the sanctions would be the strongest "that we have applied to a country."

The European allies of the United States tried to convince him not to abandon the agreement and deplored the fact. The Iranian leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, warned that his country could "start enriching uranium more than before."

The sanctions consist of limiting Iran's ability to sell oil or do business abroad, which affects a wide range of economic sectors and individuals.

Large American and European companies could also feel the effects. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said the Boeing and Airbus licenses will be revoked to sell commercial aircraft worth billions of dollars to Iran. Some products could be exempt, but Mnuchin refused to reveal what they were.

The decision represents a major blow to some of the closest allies of the United States, including Britain, France and Germany, who joined the United States only three years ago to sign the agreement.
