Trump appears closer to terminating Iran deal: ex-Saudi envoy

Iran, moreover, argues that it is not receiving the full benefits of sanctions relief mandated by the deal because big banks have continued to shy away from doing business with Tehran for fear of falling foul of USA sanctions not related to the nuclear deal.

On Iran, al-Jubeir was clear that the Saudis rejected the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPoA), the 2015 deal between Iran and a multilateral coalition to limit it nuclear weapons development.

Merkel spoke with Netanyahu at the world economic conference in Davos last January, when she also cautioned that an American exit would also create a schism in the Western alliance, with the US and Israel on one side versus Germany, France and the United Kingdom, along with Russia, China and Iran, according to a report on Tuesday on Israel's Channel 10.

During the time since, he has lamented that the deal has in it no restrictions on Iranian ballistic missile activities and criticized the deal's so-called "sunset" clause, which would allow Iran to ramp up its nuclear activities beginning in 2025.

"The only guidance the president gave was to reach agreement with the E3", Hook said.

Trump highlighted the high unemployment rate among Iranian youth and said "the average Iranian family is 15 percent poorer today than it was 10 years ago". "It's probably another month or so, and you're going to see what I do".

Asked if he believed Trump would pull out on May 12, the deadline for the president to issue a new waiver to suspend Iran sanctions as part of the deal, Corker responded, "I do".

The United States also had a bilateral meeting with Iran in Vienna to demand the release of US citizens held by Tehran, Hook said. "I wanted to either break it or do something, and he felt a little bit differently".

"However, our exports to the United States over the years of 1395 and 1396 showed that those in the business of Iranian rugs managed to take back their market share from the rivals and continue to be the leaders of the global carpet business", Kargar said.

In a bid to persuade the USA not to pull out of the agreement, France asked the European Union on March 19 to consider new sanctions on Iran due to its involvement in the Syrian civil war and its ballistic missile program. One of the committee's 11 Republicans, Senator Rand Paul, has already announced his opposition over issues including his concern that Pompeo would support war with Iran.

Meanwhile, the feud between Saudi Arabia and Iran is running deep in the ongoing war in Yemen, where Saudi is bogged down by the Tehran-backed Houthi rebels.

Trump's focus on Saudi purchases of US military equipment came amid a bipartisan effort to limit the United States' role in Yemen's civil war and protests in several USA cities over the Saudi-led invasion, which has contributed to a humanitarian crisis.

Trump told reporters during a White House meeting Tuesday with Saudi Arabia's Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman that "a lot of bad things" are happening in Iran. "I guess he [thought] it was okay", Trump said of Tillerson.
