Reintroduction of US sanctions on Iran sets alarm bell ringing in Delhi

Trump said his goal was to "work with our allies to find a real, comprehensive, and lasting solution to the Iranian nuclear threat", but none of the other world powers that signed the 2015 agreement stepped forward on May 8 to go down the path of negotiating a new deal.

Trump called it "the worst deal ever" when he was running for president and said he would pull out if the deal were not substantially improved.

Riyadh's statement, which came less than an hour after Mr Trump's decision, said it "supports and welcomes" the USA decision.

Alistair Burt, Britain's foreign minister, on Wednesday sought to play down fears that the USA could launch an attack on Iran, saying there was a need to "de-escalate tensions".

"It was our responsibility to do it [lobbying Mr. Trump to stay in the agreement]", the first French official said. Its state refiners had chalked out plans to nearly double oil imports from Iran this fiscal year, drawn to the virtual free shipping on oil sales offered by Iran, Reuters reported last month.

Members of Russia's Permanent Security Council, at a meeting with Russian president Vladimir Putin, today expressed their "deep concern" over the United States decision and highlighted the importance of the document.

China is expressing regret over President Donald Trump's decision to withdraw the USA from the Iran nuclear deal and says it remains committed to the landmark pact.

Elsewhere, shortly after Trump's Tuesday announcement, the European Union's top diplomat, Federica Mogherini, urged solidarity in the rest of the worldwide community outside the United States.

"We will not allow Trump to win this psychological war", Rohani said.

Under the 2015 agreement, Iran agreed to curb its nuclear activities in return for the lifting of sanctions imposed by the UN, US and EU.

He acknowledged however that the USA president's decision - despite appeals from Theresa May, French President Emmanuel Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel not to abandon the accord - had shown the limits of European influence in Washington.

The US administration also singled out Iran's main ocean carrier, Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Line (IRISL).

The sanctions seek to punish Iran for its nuclear programme by limiting its ability to sell oil or do business overseas, affecting a wide range of Iranian economic sectors and individuals.

"The nuclear non-proliferation regime is at stake", President Macron tweeted. They also burned a piece of paper representing the nuclear deal.

On Tuesday, Trump fulfilled a campaign by declaring that the U.S.is leaving the deal.

In a brief statement Wednesday, the International Atomic Energy Agency's director-general, Yukiya Amano, said that "as of today, the IAEA can confirm that the nuclear-related commitments are being implemented by Iran".

"As I said before with regards to the deal, we are on auto pilot heading towards a mountain".

The leaders of France, Germany and the United Kingdom have also emphasised their continuing commitment to the agreement, which was signed in July 2015 by Iran and the E3/EU+3 (China, France, Germany, Russia, the United Kingdom and the US - also referred to as the P5+1 - plus the European Union) and implemented in January 2016.
