The deal is dead 

President Donald Trump on Tuesday announced the US government’s withdrawal from the Iran deal, marking one of the biggest foreign-policy decisions of his tenure so far.

Trump complained the Iran deal supplied the “murderous” Iranian regime with “billions” of dollars and said allowing the deal to stand would be “unacceptable” and catalyze a nuclear-arms race in the Middle East.

The president has long criticized the Iran deal, which was orchestrated by the Obama administration and aimed to restrict Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapons in exchange for the easing of harsh economic sanctions.

“Since the agreement, Iran’s bloody ambitions have grown only more brazen,” Trump said. “The Iran deal is defective at its core.”

“Therefore, I am announcing today that the United States will withdraw from the Iran nuclear deal,” Trump added.

Reactions

Nine pro-Syrian fighters were reportedly killed in an Israeli airstrike near the Syrian capital of Damascus on Tuesday, shortly after Israeli forces determined “abnormal movements of Iranian forces” in Syria.

Tensions are elevated because Israel and Iran are in the middle of fighting a shadow war in Syria. As President Trump withdrew the United States from the Iran nuclear deal, Israel put itself on “high alert,” as they were afraid Iran will retaliate against Israel with military force after Trump’s decision.

What to expect next? 

As the deal end, many experts and politics make their predictions about what to expect then and how the situation will influence the World.

  • Trump’s decision immediately reinstates US sanctions that were in place against Iran before the nuclear deal was reached. All future business with Iran that is covered by those sanctions — such as buying oil from Iran — is officially off limits in the eyes of the US government.
  • Companies and banks that are already doing business with Iran will have three to six months to wind down their business before being subject to sanctions.
  • Analysts say the sanctions will deal a serious blow to Iran’s already struggling economy, which has a high unemployment rate and is overly reliant on oil exports.
  • Though Trump has removed the United States from the deal, allies in Europe have committed to upholding it, and the reinstatement of sanctions may result in tension between the U.S. and those it relies on most.
  • France’s Foreign Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian says the Iranian nuclear deal is “not dead” despite US President Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw.
  • Reimposing sanctions on Iran would be Trump’s most consequential foreign policy maneuver yet, but a meeting with Kim Jong-un looms large. For Trump to pull out of a deal that by all accounts, Iran is complying with, it could make North Korea wary of entering into a similar deal with the United States.
