European Union to defend interests against USA trade measures: Germany, France, Britain

US National Security Advisor John Bolton told Fox News on Sunday that Mr Trump had not yet made his decision.

Trump has threatened to leave the deal, which was negotiated by the previous Obama Administration.

Earlier this month, United States ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said that the North Korean leader Kim Jong Un had "looked at the Iran deal, he's seen what he can get and he's seen how he can push through loopholes and we're not going to let that happen again".

He added that "Iran just wants to say that it will no longer enter negotiations on its nuclear program" and that first of all, it should be considered by US President Donald Trump who "thinks that he can start negotiations again, bargain with Iran and get advantages from it". "It will not solve all the problems with Iran", she said. He warned of the worldwide community's looming distrust for Iran. What's more, no one in Washington seems to know what happened to it.

Trump said he wanted a "reciprocal" trade relationship with Germany and other European nations and wanted Germany and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to pay more for their common defence, an issue he has raised repeatedly.




In 2015 the United States and other nations struck a deal with Iran to end a 12-year standoff over that country's nuclear program.

Merkel acknowledged that the Iranian nuclear deal is unlikely to resolve problems. Iran strictly adheres to the JCPOA, showing maximum goodwill in the deal's implementation.

Downing Street said May, Merkel and Macron also pledged to "continue working closely" with the USA on the issue, including on "those issues that a new deal might cover".

He said he supported Trump's decision to move the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, although he questioned the strategic approach: "The matter in which the president handled it in my view was a missed opportunity- but Israel's capital is Jerusalem, and we've all recognized that and will continue to recognize that", he said.

By withdrawing too quickly, without a comprehensive plan for the day after, "we isolate the United States rather than isolate Iran", Cardin said.
