In a statement issued by the White House on, 12th January, Donald Trump threatened to terminate any nuclear deal with Iran if key European countries refused to agree to his terms and become an ally to the United States, “This is the last chance. No one should doubt my word”.

He said:

“I hereby call on key European countries to join with the United States...Those who, for whatever reason, choose not to work with us will be siding with the Iranian regime’s
nuclear ambitions”



His ultimate aim is to ensure the Iranian nation has no access to nuclear weapons, indefinitely, “My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon—not just for ten years, but forever.”

Trump also outlined “four critical components” that must be in the deal.



“First, it must demand that Iran allow immediate inspections at all sites requested by international inspectors.

Second, it must ensure that Iran never even comes close to possessing a nuclear weapon.

Third, unlike the nuclear deal, these provisions must have no expiration date. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon—not just for ten years, but forever. If Iran does not comply with any of these provisions, American nuclear sanctions would automatically resume.


Fourth, the legislation must explicitly state in United States law—for the first time—that long-range missile and nuclear weapons programs are inseparable, and that Iran’s development and testing of missiles should be subject to severe sanctions.”

Trump has neither stated which key countries need to be involved in the deal to progress nor has he outlined the “terrible flaws of the Iran nuclear deal”.
