Trump puts Iran Deal (and regional stability) at risk; Russia, EU ‘still committed to deal’

US president Donald Trump, today, put regional security at risk by announcing his unwillingness to certify Iran Nuclear deal signed during the Obama administration. Except Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu – whose country considers Iran as its arch rival – a wide majority of the world leaders denounced this move reaffirming their commitment towards the nuclear deal. Russia, a major stakeholder and part of the nuclear deal negotiation, also warned Trump against such a move. Iranian president Hassan Rouhani also responded to Trump’s speech also stating that a ‘multilateral deal’ could not be reworked on a single country’s terms.
