The move would deal a profound blow to US allies and potentially deepen the president’s isolation on the world stage. It was not immediately clear which sanctions that were lifted under the deal might be quickly reimposed, said the sources, who were not authorised to speak publicly. In a burst of last-minute diplomacy, punctuated by a visit by UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson, the deal’s European members gave in to many of Mr Trump’s demands, according to officials, diplomats and others briefed on the negotiations.

US President Donald Trump and French counterpart Emmanuel Macron called for a “new” deal with Iran Tuesday (24 April), looking beyond divisions over a landmark nuclear accord that now hangs in the balance. Trump pilloried a three-year old agreement designed to curb Iran’s nuclear program as “insane” and “ridiculous”, despite European pleas for him not to walk away from the accord. Instead, Trump eyed a “grand bargain” that would also limit Iran’s ballistic missile program and support for militant groups across the Middle East. “I think we will have a great shot at doing a much bigger, maybe, deal,” said Trump, stressing that any new accord would have to be built on “solid foundations.” “They should have made a deal that covered Yemen, that covered Syria, that covered other parts of the Middle East,” said Trump. “No matter where you go in the Middle East, you see the fingerprints of … [Read more...] about Trump, Macron call for ‘new’ nuclear deal with Iran
