US President Donald Trump announced Friday he would not reimpose nuclear sanctions on Iran, keeping a landmark 2015 deal alive for now. “Despite my strong inclination, I have not yet withdrawn the United States from the Iran nuclear deal,” Trump said in a statement. My policy is to deny Iran all paths to a nuclear weapon – not just for 10 years, but forever,” Trump said. “The UK has a clear position on the Iran nuclear deal: We regard it as a crucial agreement that makes the world a safer place by neutralizing the threat of a nuclear-armed Iran,” the British Foreign Office said. America’s allies see the accord as the best way to thwart Iran’s nuclear ambitions and a victory for multilateral diplomacy.
