London, 31 July - Tensions are soaring between the US and Iran following Donald Trump’s decision to withdraw from the 2015 nuclear deal and following recent Iranian threats against destroying oil imports, the US is now looking at military options to keep vital sea transport routes in the Middle East open.

Iranian officials have made many verbal threats against the safety of global oil trade in the Persian Gulf in recent days, while the Iran-backed Houthi rebels have attacked Saudi oil tankers.

According to CNN, this attack on the Saudi Arabian oil tankers on Wednesday is a cause of worry among many.

London, 30 July - At the beginning of May, U.S. President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be exiting the 2015 nuclear agreement, formally known as the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA). This came after months of speculation and much pleading from the European Union for Trump to remain within the framework of the deal.

However, Trump refused to bow down to pressure and he was very clear in his reasons for exiting the deal.

London, 18 July - A top Iranian official threatened on Tuesday that Iran is ready to increase its uranium enrichment to higher levels if their ongoing talks with Europe are unable to save the Iran nuclear deal.

Behrouz Kamalvandi, spokesman and vice-president of Iran’s Atomic Energy Organisation, said: “We have of course adopted some measures in order to prepare the ground for eventually increasing the level of enrichment if it is needed and if the negotiations with the Europeans fail. We are of course continuing to carry out and implement our obligations based on the [2015 nuclear deal or Joint Comprehensive Place of Action (JCPOA)], but at the same time, taking every scenario into consideration, we are preparing ourselves.”
