Iran announces partial withdrawal from nuclear deal.
Precisely what Bolton and Booby Nincompoopo want so they can go to war…
Iran will announce its partial withdrawal from the nuclear deal signed with world powers, a year after Donald Trump pulled out of the agreement signed in 2015, Tehran has announced.
Wednesday’s “reciprocal measures” will be formally conveyed to ambassadors to countries remaining inside the deal - France, Britain, Germany, China and Russia. Foreign minister Mohammad Javad Zarif will separately set out the technical and legal details in a letter to the EU foreign affairs chief Federica Mogherini.
Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been under intense domestic political pressure to produce some kind of countermeasure following the US withdrawal.
Tehran has lost patience with Europe’s efforts to create a new viable financial mechanism that would allow European firms to continue trading items such as medicines and humanitarian goods with Iran and circumvent US secondary sanctions.
