Iran Deal Ire
Leaders overseas react to what could happen if President Trump pulled out of the Iran deal.
It’s the start of a tense week for world leaders. Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu told journalists that an agreement that enables Iran to keep and hide all its nuclear weapons know-how is a horrible deal. He said it must be fixed or nixed, warning that if nothing is done Iran will have a nuclear arsenal. He also told his regular Sunday cabinet meeting that Iran has delivered advanced weapons systems to Syria that could be used to attack Israel. Iran’s president Hassan Rouhani said that if President Trump pulls out of the Iranian nuclear deal, it would be “an historic regret” for the United States. Complicating the fate of the Iran nuclear deal, the UK, France, and Germany remain committed to the agreement. What if any impact it will have on President Trump remains unclear.
