"Trump lacks rational competence, but Iran can bring him to his senses", said Larijani, a report by Khabar Online said.

The U.S. Treasury Department announced joint sanctions Thursday with the United Arab Emirates on entities accused of funding "malign activities" carried out by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Have argued (in my Nuclear Weapons and Indian Security) that nuclear arms racing isn't all bad and is, in fact, a kind of arms control. "They have always been after the toppling of Iran's regime and this exit is in line with that aim", Khatami said in a televised address to worshippers at Tehran University.

Egypt and Saudi Arabia may fast-track development of their own nuclear weapons if the Iran deal collapses as a result of the US withdrawal, former European Union and US Agency for International Development (USAID) consultant Paolo von Schirach told Sputnik.

The stances opposing the U.S. president's withdrawal from the nuclear deal pose a number of seemingly positive visions that are in fact much more negative. The Iranian Regime is unsafe to the world in every sense and Trump is giving the Iranian people at chance at life if he can get this wicked regime overthrown.

While the personal backgrounds of Obama and Kerry may have shaped the success of the nuclear deal, Trump's own psychology is now determining its unraveling. Because he is convinced that the deal can not stand once U.S. sanctions are rolled out. Quite the contrary, it provided cover for Iran to continue its efforts.

Even during the time when nuclear negotiations were held, the European troika (Britain, Germany and France) agreed that Iran's nuclear and missile capabilities complement each other, and limiting of one of these two without the other will not decrease the regional power of Iran to the extent they had in mind. This doesn't seem likely. "They will never abandon the United States for us", said housewife Poormoslem.

Divisions in Iran over how it should respond to the USA pullout were illustrated as senior cleric Ayatollah Ahmad Khatami told worshippers at Tehran University on Friday that European nations could not be trusted. But the severity of Washington's stance has raised doubts about their viability. The venture will suffer and India may have to surrender the advantage to China and Pakistan.

"There is a realization among all European states what we can not keep going in the direction we are headed today whereby we submit to American decisions", said French Finance Minister Bruno Le Maire.

What does India do?

In this context, the outcome of the USA invasion of Iraq in 2003 reflects the complex social structures in the region which willy-nilly worked to Iran's advantage. In any case, the European troika, along with the two countries of China and Russian Federation, should officially guarantee this position, and declare their commitments to Iran in this regard.

Japanese PM Shinzo Abe has done just such a thing by calling a meeting of Japan, China, and South Korea as, perhaps, a body to pick up the pieces after Trump is done (though the South Korean deputy foreign minister justified it as a runup to making the Jong-un-Trump summit successful). The agreement states that the United States is conducting conversations with several parties including Saudi Arabia to increase oil supply to avoid spike in oil prices while the USA will intensify pressure on Iran.

The second batch of sanctions will be put back in place by November 2018. India and Iran have robust economic and commercial ties covering many sectors though it has traditionally been dominated by the import of Iranian crude oil by India. The idea is to economically throttle Iran. He was able to withdraw US participation because his predecessor, Barack Obama, chose not to seek congressional treaty approval.

Gasoline prices in the USA have already surged to $3 per gallon on an average which is the highest since 2014 and has increased by $2.50 since 2017.

The question is this: Is India so bereft of leverage that it has no alternative?

Mercedes-Benz maker Daimler signed a deal in 2016 with two Iranian companies to produce and market trucks. In order to please the US, India may halt operations at Chabahar.

Companies in San Diego used to do business with Iran before the regime change. I guess this shows how far we've fallen. In an independent path lies India's future. Even if it risks splitting the Western alliance? That's the reputation Modi's India is developing.

Five years of careful planning by many countries went into crafting the Iran nuclear deal.

"The country's gasoline production state is also very good and they can't pressure us in this regard as well", he added.
