Trump's announcement last Tuesday that the United States was exiting the 2015 nuclear accord was met with widespread dismay in Europe where companies now face the threat of sanctions if they do business with Iran.
Minister for trade and export David Parker last week said it was still unclear to the nations who remained in the nuclear agreement what exports or trade were at risk when associating with Iran. "The policy of the administration is to make sure that Iran never gets close to deliverable nuclear weapons", Bolton said on the ABC program "This Week".
Speaking on "Fox News Sunday, " Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said withdrawing from the 2015 accord wasn't aimed at Europeans, but he didn't rule out the U.S. imposing sanctions on entities that continue to do business with Iran, even as efforts continue to strike a new deal. Zarif hopes to redesign the deal without American involvement.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates said while the Iran deal was "a flawed agreement" because of a lack of unfettered inspections and other problems, leaving the deal isolates the United States and Trump should have extended it for at least another six months to work with allies. We all share the common objective of making sure that Iran never gets nuclear weapons, are anxious about their terribly destabilising and threatening military behaviour across the region and their ballistic missile program.
This week, Israel and Iran engaged in an extensive military exchange on the heels of Trump's decision to leave the deal.
"Remember how badly Iran was behaving with the Iran Deal in place", he said. "Now, that will not happen!"

Although most analysts believe the USA withdrawal has effectively scuppered the agreement, Iran's foreign minister talked up the prospects of its survival on Sunday while visiting China, another of the signatories.
So far, China, France, Russia, Britain, the European Union and Iran remain in the accord, which placed controls on Iran's nuclear program and led to a relaxation of United States economic sanctions against Iran and companies doing business there.
Zarif also published a government statement on his Twitter page, slamming Trump's "extremist administration" for abandoning "an accord recognized as a victory of diplomacy by the global community". "Our goal should be regime change in Iran".
