President Trump repeats misleading claim about Iran's military budget

Oil Jumps as Supplies Shrink Trump Seeks Curbs on Iranian Crude

Still, Iran will feel the pain from USA sanctions, even without cooperation from the other global partners.

Trump argued that the 2015 deal, which allowed for the lifting of sanctions, wasn't tough enough on Iran.

"In a few moments, I will sign a presidential memorandum to begin reinstating USA nuclear sanctions on the Iranian regime".

"Do we accept extraterritorial sanctions?" As much as $33 billion in payments were made.

"But the impact will escalate as we approach November (i.e. the end of 180-day wind down period)".

Israel and Iran are now at each others throats of Syria, with Trump's decision on the nuclear deal only making things more unstable.

Mr Turnbull told the ABC he had "some optimism" that the nuclear agreement would survive without the participation of the United States. USA output is creeping closer to that of top producer Russian Federation, which pumps about 11 million bpd.

He says while the Europeans will try to cushion the blow, it's worth considering the situation from the perspective of worldwide companies. The big losers are those who re-entered trade with Iran under the umbrella of the nuclear weapons deal, such as France with Total's US$5Bn 10-year deal to open South Pars gas reserves.

German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said he would work with affected companies to try to "minimise the negative consequences" of the USA move, adding: "That means, it is concretely about damage limitation".

But he added that supporting such groups would remain a priority for Iran.

But on May 8, 2018, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the U.S. was withdrawing from the deal.

Russia's envoy to the European Union said Moscow would also continue its efforts to keep the deal functioning. Only Israel and Saudi Arabia expressed support for the U.S. president's stance.

The US President ignored the pleas and advice from leaders of France, Germany, and Britain.

Iran's Fars News Agency tweeted video footage of the protest, noting that a number of parliamentarians were involved. Their goal in 2015 was to recover some of the cash US officials had been holding for years, since the revolutionary Islamic regime took power. "Today's decision to put the JCPOA at risk is a serious mistake", Obama tweeted.

Fourth, what will the EU, Russia and China do to slow down the "America first" approach on trade and foreign policy?

President Trump pulling out of the nuclear deal and Iran's missile exchanges with Israel are just ramping up the pressure in a country that's already dangerously close to boiling point. After the U.S. president announced his decision, President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker suggested that the EU should replace the United States as an global leader. "But they were keen to stress that Trump's move had not necessarily dealt the agreement a fatal blow". Iran is still sticking to its nuclear commitments, according to IAEA inspectors.

Sourcing from Iran increased to 12.7 MT in 2015-16, giving it the sixth spot.
