Iran-Nuclear deal and unilateral withdrawal of US

The Iran-Nuclear deal was concluded between the Islamic Republic of Iran and other countries including the USA, UK, France, Germany, China, and Russia.

The deal was concluded after months-long diplomatic efforts and was being considered a great diplomatic win and a triumph towards the de-escalation of nuclear tensions in the region but Trump’s unilateral withdrawal from the JCPOA has turned the success into a failure.

Now other European countries who were a party in the deal are stepping up efforts to stop the enrichment threats from Iran.

Replacement of sanctions

The USA has again placed the sanctions against Iran and also Trump administration warned that any nation that helps Iran to develop nuclear capacity will also be placed under US sanctions.
