Hard criticism by Donald Trump of a nuclear deal with Iran is empty words, and threats to cancel it are hardly realizable. Guarantees of compliance with the transaction remain several leading countries, including Russia. In Iran itself, Trump was told of his powerlessness to change the agreement. If the unique arrangement is canceled, the world will be on the verge of a nuclear war.
Tehran questioned the ability of US President Donald Trump to change the nuclear deal with Iran (officially called the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (VHAP) for the Iranian atom). The appearance of this deal in 2015 was one of the main achievements in the foreign policy of the US administration headed by Barack Obama.
The agreement was crowned by the multi-year efforts of many countries. It was reinforced by the position of the five main members of the UN Security Council and Germany, the so-called six international mediators, which includes Russia. Thanks to the deal, Iran made its nuclear program transparent by allowing international inspectors of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) to cover secret facilities, many of which are underground.
As Iranian President Hasan Rouhani said, the deal was ratified by the UN Security Council, so Trump and the US Congress will not be able to add new items to it. According to him, the SVPD is much stronger, "than this gentleman imagined during his election campaign." "This is a UN document. Is it possible for one president to unilaterally cancel this important international deal? Apparently, he is not aware of the cases ", - said Rouhani.
The President spoke about Iran's readiness to respond to the infringement of national interests. "Our weapons and our missile program, our missiles are designed for defense. We have always been aimed at protecting ourselves, "Rouhani said.
The United States' failure to unilaterally withdraw from the agreement on Iran's nuclear program was previously indicated by the head of European diplomacy Federica Mogerini.
In an opportunity to cancel the deal by his decision at any time Trump told the day before in an address to the American people. He called it "one of the worst and one-sided agreements the US has ever entered into," and as a result, the Iranian dictatorship received "political and economic support." "The deal allows Iran to develop certain elements of the nuclear program," Trump complained.
Such a stiff position of the American leader regarding Iran could arise under the influence of his advisers. As foreign media write, Trump was advised by the US permanent representative to the UN, Nikki Haley, to recognize Iran's non-compliance with the deal. Allegedly the diplomat promised to give the president convincing reasons to refuse to certify it contrary to the position of Defense Secretary James Mattis and US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who persuaded Trump to recognize Iran's implementation of this deal in July.
Moreover, Haley allegedly indulges Trump's moods in the Iranian deal, although almost all the advisors and the environment of the head of the White House are trying to do everything possible so that the president does not resort to impulsive decisions.
However, Iranian analyst Karine Gevorgyan points out Trump's lack of legal opportunities to review the deal. "Even if he initiates this process, he must obtain the approval of the Congress.
As far as I know, the Senate reacted with great doubt to his initiative,
"Gevorgyan told the VZGLYAD newspaper.
She recalled the position of the remaining parties to the agreement, which note Iran's compliance with all the terms of the document. The same opinion is held in the IAEA. Such a rigid attitude of Trump to the transaction the expert explains by the fact that it was concluded by the previous administration.
"Supporters of this agreement, including Hillary Clinton, are the internal enemies of Trump. While this gives the impression of an internal struggle. On the external circuit, it is impossible to review the agreement. Plus, all the other participants argue that the agreement is being observed, "Gevorgyan explained.
If Trump does not stop, then the US can drive itself into international isolation. This was stated by the head of the Duma Committee on International Affairs Leonid Slutsky (LDPR). "Accusations of non-compliance with the agreement to Tehran are vocal and unproven. The remaining members of the Six are in favor of maintaining the Iranian deal. In Europe, China and Russia are well aware of what irreparable consequences such provocations can lead to Iran, "Slutsky said.
The break with the agreement can send a negative signal to the DPRK "in terms of the unreliability of the diplomatic path for resolving the situation surrounding the development of the nuclear program." However, the deputy doubts the US withdrawal from the agreement. "The United States is balancing on the red line, but they can not fail to understand that this is fraught with an extremely difficult situation in the region that could put the world on the brink of war," warned Slutsky.
