Reactions to American withdrawal from nuclear deal with Iran (Relevant for GS Mains Paper II; International Organizations and Bilateral Relations)

Reaction of EU
World powers vowed to uphold a landmark deal curbing Iran’s nuclear programme after President Donald Trump pulled the U.S. out of the agreement, raising fears of a fresh confrontation with Tehran.

Britain, a signatory to the 2015 deal, said it remained committed, with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson urging Washington “to avoid taking action that would hinder other parties from continuing to make the agreement work.” The French, British and German Foreign Ministers will meet Iranian representatives on Monday, Mr. Le Drian said.

Reaction of Iran
Iran reacted furiously to Mr. Trump’s decision, with lawmakers burning a U.S. flag and chanting “Death to America” in Parliament.

But its regional rivals Saudi Arabia and Israel applauded the U.S. move.

China stands by Iran
China said it will maintain “normal economic and trade exchanges” with Iran. Beijing will “remain in dialogue with all parties and continue to devote itself to safeguarding and implementing the deal,” a spokesman said.

Possible implications of withdrawal
Mr. Trump’s decision to ditch the accord and reimpose sanctions on the Islamic republic risks overturning years of painstaking diplomacy, worsening instability in West Asia, and threatens foreign companies’ business in Iran worth billions of dollars.

Britain, a signatory to the 2015 deal, said it remained committed, with Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson urging Washington “to avoid taking action that would hinder other parties from continuing to make the agreement work.” The French, British and German Foreign Ministers will meet Iranian representatives on Monday, Mr. Le Drian said.
