President Donald Trump will unveil the US’ strategy on Iran tomorrow, the White House said. “Tomorrow, the president will deliver remarks announcing the (Iran) strategy to the country,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders told reporters at her daily news conference. She however, gave no indication of what the Iran strategy
would be. However, media reports said that the president might pull out of the Iranian nuclear agreement.

Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi cautioned against leaving the Iranian nuclear agreement, which was one of the top foreign policy achievement of the former president Barack Obama. “Experts agree that the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action remains the best way to prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons. Failing to certify the Iran Nuclear Agreement would be a spectacularly dangerous and reckless decision that puts America’s national security at risk and the catastrophic threat of a nuclear-armed Iran back on the table,” Pelosi said.

Noting that Democrats have no illusions about the conduct of the Iranian regime, she said destroying the JCPOA would be a gift to the most radical and dangerous elements in Iran. The agreement has set up the toughest international monitoring regime ever enacted.

The JCPOA has also allowed the international community to make progress in holding Iran accountable for its continued support for terrorism and its many human rights violations, she said.

    Drumpf has turned out to be one of the world's major s. Either stick to the terms of the agreement or withdraw and face the consequences. He thinks he is only one who knows the 'Art of the Deal'. The Iranians are prepared for all eventualities and no other country will go along with Trump. The US security establishment is caught between those who think that the role of the US is to act as the Israeli gorilla and the majority who see US interests first. Already they are stuck in Iraq in large part due to the efforts of the Israeli lobby, now they will suffer an even greater loss if they decide to scrap an agreement which the Iranians have adhered to. If Drumpf does anything foolish, those concerned about North Korean nuclear weapons, can argue with legitimate reason that agreements with the US, are not worth the paper they are written on.
